Our new feature asks celebrities what’s on their mind and between their bread.
Keith Stanfield is a name you should know. He made his feature film debut in 2013’s Short Term 12, a role that earned him an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Supporting Male. Since then, he hasn’t slowed down. Earlier this year, he portrayed young civil-rights activist Jimmie Lee Jackson in Selma, and he’s landed roles in three upcoming biopics: Miles Ahead, about jazz musician Miles Davis; Straight Outta Compton (as Snoop Dogg!), about legendary hip-hop group N.W.A.; and Snowden, a film about former CIA employee and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.
