An actor who grew up on the streets of Brooklyn has a hard time performing opposite a classically trained Brit in a movie about American gang violence. (Contains strong language.)
About Key & Peele:
Key & Peele showcases the fearless wit of stars Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as the duo takes on everything from “Gremlins 2” to systemic racism. With an array of sketches as wide-reaching as they are cringingly accurate, the pair has created a bevy of classic characters, including Wendell, the players of the East/West Bowl and President Obama’s Anger Translator.

Lmao....I thought that this was so funny but yet had an important point! Because, it seems to pokes fun at how "American" movies, now seem to have this love affair with British actors. And so, this sketch seems to show how that can go too far. Even to the point, of casting for AF-AM authenticity overseas and overlooking "the nose on its own face!" Even with that, I LMAO! They are so funny!

That British accent is the best I've heard an American do! Got me wondering if all along Key is actually British! One small mistake was 'mom', because we say 'mum'.

Every American director is trying to be the one who finds the next best stringer.

This kind of sums of the social norms of theatrics though. How much of the Hollywood big screen is utterly bullshit... yet, if you play something 'realistic' it's not enough for people to buy? As much as we read, learn and pick up from life experiences... Our intake from TV / film is huge and that becomes a perpetual information source of skewed bullshit. Going to shoot that petrol tank on the car?!?! Shit better explode like a nuke son!!!

This is a classic case of the script and director restricting an actor. Nigel is much better than this. Antoine on the other hand, is just hopeless.

I've noticed stuff like this in my own life. Where everyone sees or feels something and I'm like "HOW!?"... I feel like him in this skit a lot of times.

Keegan is so brilliant, even his "streets" accent has a bit of an English tinge to it.
