Jordan Peele: ‘I’m done with acting’

Jordan Peele has ruled out taking on any more acting gigs, as he hates watching himself on screen.

The star made a name for himself in shows such as Fargo and Mad TV, before going on to find fame behind the camera, directing flicks including 2018’s Get Out and Us in 2019.

However, in a new interview with Bradley Whitford as part of an ActBlue fundraiser, Jordan admitted he can’t see himself acting in the future.

“I like watching my movies. I can watch the films I direct (but) watching me perform just feels like, it’s a bad kind of masturbatory. It’s masturbation you don’t enjoy.

“I feel like I got to do so much and it is a great feeling. When I think about those great moments when you’re basking in something you said that feels funny. When I think about all that, I think I got enough.”

Peele is currently working on an unknown horror film project, with his next directorial offering coming in July 2022.
