  • (upbeat music)

  • - Okay, so "Get Out" was one of my,

  • that was like one of my favorite movies this year.

  • - Thank you, bro.

  • - And it's so exciting to do this with you because,

  • obviously everyone at this,

  • doing this is really top of their craft,

  • but, you know, everybody else, they're legends,

  • and we're like, you know, just starting out here,

  • we're just trying to figure it out.

  • So, what, I guess, questions you've been asked

  • a thousand times,

  • but what, how'd you hear about the project?

  • Was there an audition process?

  • How'd you get into it?

  • - It's a weird situation, cuz I

  • I did this show called "Black Mirror" back in England, 2011.

  • - Bing.

  • - Bing. Oh, you know?

  • - (laughs)

  • - Jesus.

  • See, this is surreal to me.

  • It's surreal to me that it still lives.

  • So, I did it in 2011.

  • Nothing really happened in England,

  • and then Netflix happened.

  • So Netflix happened like 2014, 2015

  • and then Americans started watching this show

  • that I did like three years before,

  • and then Jordan Peele watched it, and then he was,

  • he had this script and I read the script,

  • and I was like, "Yo, this script is insane," like...

  • - (laughs) Yeah, yeah.

  • - Are you allowed to do,

  • It just felt like it cost him something.

  • - Mm-hmm.

  • You know, I always think that's really exciting

  • to work with a filmmaker that's, like,

  • putting it all on the line, do you know what I mean?

  • And sayin' stuff that's not...

  • And then we Skyped and then later,

  • it took a couple months,

  • and then I had a film called "Sicario" coming out

  • - Right.

  • - And then in the press run I went to audition

  • for the role, and then I got it.

  • - And that was in London or L.A.?

  • - That was in L.A., that was in L.A.

  • So the premiere of "Sicario" was in New York,

  • then I went to L.A., I was like, I should just go.

  • - That's always a good feeling,

  • that always makes you feel like, you know,

  • you're in L.A., you're making moves, and...

  • - It's always good to,

  • I always feel like it's always good to be there.

  • You have to be there.

  • - In front of the person?

  • - Yeah, yeah.

  • - So you don't like self-tape's as much?

  • - I do. I got "Sicario" for self-tape.

  • - Okay.

  • - But, like, sometimes it's,

  • people have to see you and know you.

  • - No, it's true, and sometimes you do the self-tape

  • and there's a simple note a casting director's giving

  • everybody because everybody keeps making the same mistake.

  • - Yeah, yeah.

  • - If you do it at home.

  • Also, at home, you can control

  • too much sometimes, too, I find.

  • - Yeah. How did you get to "Call Me By Your Name"?

  • - So.

  • - Which is amazing.

  • - Hey, man.

  • - And you're amazing in it, bro. Honestly.

  • - And thank you so much, cuz you were at

  • the screening the other night.

  • - Yeah, yeah.

  • - It was cool seeing a bunch of older people,

  • none of whom I know, coming out of the screening room

  • and being like, "There's Daniel!"

  • - (laughs)

  • - We're gonna have this nice conversation soon.

  • Um. I was 17, and my agent Brian Swardstrom,

  • he represents Tilda Swinton, and she's the actress that's

  • the lead of a lot of his other movies,

  • like "I Am Love" and "A Bigger Splash"

  • and they had this project, they didn't have the script yet,

  • called "Call Me By Your Name",

  • and Luca was a producer on it at the time,

  • so Brian said, "Meet with this kid in New York,"

  • and we had a great meeting,

  • and very, very thankfully, Luca doesn't audition his actors,

  • he never has, so.

  • Then it was like a loose attachment thing,

  • but even at a young age, it became clear in show business,

  • you know, you become attached to these things

  • and most of them never come to any sort of fruition.

  • So, uh. And then it was just a waiting game, you know.

  • We thought maybe that summer it would happen,

  • and it didn't happen.

  • Maybe the summer after that it would happen,

  • and it didn't happen.

  • you start losing hope a little bit.

  • Then finally, like, three years into it,

  • then it, then it happened, so.

  • - Wow. So it was a three year process?

  • - Say it again?

  • - It was a three year process?

  • - It was like a three year, yeah.

  • I mean the, yeah, and in many ways,

  • it feels like the project of my youth

  • or something because it's been on the periphery for so long,

  • so, it really was.

  • And then we shot it, and now it's been like

  • a year-and-a-half process to get it out, so.

  • I'll be, you know, I'm gonna be 22 soon

  • and I heard about it when I was 17.

  • - So, like, in terms of like, him not auditioning people,

  • so how was that meeting, then?

  • what do you feel like he was trying to see out of you?

  • - Well, I like that.

  • And I have this impression with other people

  • I meet with sometimes, I'm curious if you have it too.

  • They're just, like, sussing you out,

  • and they're feeling out your vibe,

  • which is weird, because you don't want to be fake,

  • or... certainly there's a level of artificiality

  • to all of this, but, like, you wanna be real,

  • but then you see, like, when else do you eat with someone

  • and they're just like, like judging you, you know.

  • Making assumptions about you.

  • (laughs)

  • - (laughs) Dates.

  • - [Man] Elio, Oliver. Oliver, Elio.

  • - [Oliver] How you doing?

  • - [Elio] Nice to meet you. Elio.

  • - [Man] You must be exhausted.

  • - [Oliver] Little bit.

  • - [Man] (laughing)

  • Come, come, come.

  • - [Elio] May I bring your things up to your room?

  • - [Oliver] Uh, sure. Yeah.

  • - [Elio] My room?

  • - [Man] (laughs)

  • - Follow him.

  • - Okay, now, this is, again,

  • I'm sure you've gotten this a thousand times

  • but had you watched "Key and Peele" before,

  • were you a fan of it?

  • - Bro, I had watched, like,

  • we would be, I'd go out with my friends, yeah?

  • And we'd watch a film together

  • and they would go, "What should we do?"

  • Let's go on YouTube. - Watch "Key and Peele," yeah.

  • Just watch "Key and Peele." Just constantly "Key and Peele."

  • But that's what was amazing.

  • - Totally sober, too.

  • - That's what's so surreal.

  • It was more surreal that Jordan Peele knew who I was.

  • That was, like, blew my mind.

  • Cuz in my What'sApp groups, that's like all you talk about.

  • - And did he say, had he watched,

  • had he come across that episode of "Black Mirror"

  • on his own, was it a Casting Director that sent it to him?

  • - No, he just came across it.

  • But I think it was a time when a lot of people

  • in the industry were on a certain frequency,

  • was just watching "Black Mirror."

  • Then it became a thing.

  • - Huh.

  • - So it's before the latest season.

  • - Yeah, I was part of it becoming a thing.

  • I was not on the first wave of "Black Mirror."

  • - Nah, you probably were, bro, but it's like...

  • Before the new series came out,

  • it was like the older episodes.

  • - Right. Cause they re-, they uh.

  • - They did one with Joe Wright and Joe Wright directed it.

  • - Right, right.

  • Because they stopped it and brought it back, is that it?

  • - They brought it back, yeah, so it was like.

  • It's just, it's so surreal that, like,

  • I mean, a lot of jobs I've got recently

  • have been from stuff I did in '09 or 2010, 2011.

  • - That's crazy to me.

  • - So like, Ryan Coogler saw me in a short film

  • that I did in London.

  • Like a really low-key short film, but he saw it in Sundance.

  • - I thought short films got locked in a safe somewhere

  • for no one to see, ever.

  • - Listen, it's random.

  • So he just saw it and then he wanted me to do "Panther"

  • so then, like, it was just, loads of stuff

  • and then "Widows," Steve McQueen saw me in a play in 2010.

  • - That's so sick.

  • Now I don't know how much we're supposed to talk about

  • "Black Panther," or if we're supposed to be talking about

  • the other stuff, but how was that, man,

  • cause I can't wait to see that.

  • - It was great.

  • - That's one of the Marvel ones that's coming out

  • that's so exciting, man.

  • - It's crazy. It's just, it's just so crazy, bro.

  • I keep saying this, there was a time when Chad came out.

  • - He's so good, he's such a good actor.

  • - And he was in the waterfall scene and he came out,

  • I can't say what happens, but he was walking out into

  • the waterfall and I got chills.

  • - Were you in the scene or no?

  • - Huh? I was in the scene, yeah.

  • - Is there footage of you somewhere getting chills?

  • - Hmm. Look at these goosebumps.

  • - Hey, Daniel, let's go again.

  • - (laughs)

  • - Um, do the lines.

  • - Less chills. Less chills, Dan.

  • No, but it was like a massive set piece

  • and it was just so special to be a part of.

  • - Man, okay, and you have to cut me off

  • but I'm curious about all of this.

  • Now, with Jordan, like my experience,

  • cause I'm a huge "Key and Peele" fan,

  • now I know he's like the brilliant auteur

  • that made "Get Out."

  • Before, if I had read it,

  • I'm sure on the page it was already, like,

  • whoa, this is gonna be an amazing thing,

  • but it's just a different world.

  • I'm sure you've heard this a thousand times,

  • so what was like the moment, maybe it was in a Skype,

  • maybe you were hanging out with him,

  • maybe it was on set when you thought, wow, you know,

  • this guy is actually, like, a real,

  • really amazing filmmaker?

  • - I saw it on the page, man.

  • I saw it on, like, the first line.

  • Cuz I read scripts for fun.

  • - Oh really?

  • - Like, I just like, find my favorite films and read them.

  • - What, really?

  • - Cause it's fun.

  • - Dude, you're so...

  • - It's like, I wanna read "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"

  • cuz it's fun, you know.

  • - I'm stealing that.

  • That's such, like, a good actor thing.

  • - Yeah, it just helps you -

  • - Doesn't it give you anxiety?

  • - What?

  • - Doesn't it make you feel, like,

  • oh man, these movies are so good.

  • - No, it just makes you, like,

  • I wanna know why I like something.

  • - Yeah, okay.

  • - So then, I'm more informed in

  • why I wanna say no to something,

  • I wanna say yes to something.

  • So a lot of the time it's just,
