Cool Dad Bona Fides: Jordan Peele equates having a kid with being in a horror movie. “Kids are creepy,” Peele said right before his son, Beaumont, was born. “What happens if I wake up in the middle of the night, look over and my child is standing in the doorway? Do I run? Which direction do I run? Towards it? Away from it?” Peele’s mind is sort of twisted like that. Not only is he the director of the already-classic horror-comedy Get Out, he’s the new Rod Serling in the soon-to-be-rebooted Twilight Zone series. That show will no doubt be as entertaining as watching Peele draw on his experiences at home to make weird entertainment. With ‘Get Out’, Peele stoked a national discussion about race and what it’s like to be black in America. Get ready for a different take on fatherhood. We look forward to it.
