Offbeat actor Lakeith Stanfield is heating up the big screen in his latest flick, The Photograph, alongside Insecure creator and actress Issa Rae. Lakeith captivates on the screen with his smoldering gaze and scruffy beard.
His roles in such films as Sorry To Bother You, Get Out and the FX series “Atlanta” have tended to relegate him to weirdo vibes, but he has proven to be a chameleon in such films as Straight Outta Compton, Death Note, and Netflix series “The Incredible Jessica James.” Combined, he’s been dubbed one of Hollywood’s most underrated actors.
He also just dropped a new single under the name Htiekal (his name spelled backward), with the all the psychadelic soul vibes we’d expect.
But no matter what he’s doing, we are tuned in to his quirky, cool-kid swag (that somehow teeters somewhere between Andre 3000 and Shaft) that has had women low-key crushing on him for years.
