Kumail Nanjiani will star in an episode of the new Twilight Zone original series. The episode is written by Alex Rubens (“The Last OG,” “Key and Peele”). Nanjiani joins previously announced host and narrator Jordan Peele and other cast members Sanaa Lathan and Adam Scott.
The Twilight Zone will premiere exclusively on CBS All Access in 2019.
Production has officially begun on the first season of the new CBS All Access original series THE TWILIGHT ZONE. Principal photography began Monday, Oct. 1 in Vancouver, British Columbia, 59 years after the premiere of the original series.
Jordan Peele will host and narrate the new iteration, a role made famous by creator Rod Serling.
On today’s edition of the HOLLYWOOD INSIDER, Dean on the Scene talks to John David Washington. The Morehouse grad got his acting by playing a small role in the biopic “Malcolm X” working with director Spike Lee. Twenty-five years later, he not only stars in the HBO drama “Ballers” but he’s also working with Spike Lee once again in the new Focus Features film “BlacKkKsman”. Based on a true story, the movie follows Ron Stallsworth, a newly minted Colorado Springs detective who sets out to infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. I sat down with J.D. to talk about playing Ron on the big screen and playing football again on the small screen.
