Jonathan Majors has his sights set on working with Issa Rae in the near future.
The actors recently presented an award together at 2023 NAACP awards and explained that he wants to work with her during an interview.
“I think we should definitely do the, like, we grew up together, and then I come back home, and it’s like ‘Oh, okay.’ We can start with that,” he said. “And then we gotta do— I wanna do the run through Central Park, you know what I mean? A run through Central Park, chasing her to the airport, trying to be there at the airport. She said she’s going to the airport, then book it. … Say we live in Harlem, then we’ve got Central Park, going down, then you’re running through LaGuardia trying to find [her].”
Majors added, “Issa, let’s do it. You wanna do it? Let’s do it.” Jonathan Majors currently stars in Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and he will also star in the upcoming Creed III alongside Michael B. Jordan.
The actor opened up about how he chooses the roles he play in these movies. “[I’ve always been] very conscientious about not playing roles I didn’t think were going to move me forward as an actor.”
He continued,“Now I’ll play the bad guy, I’ll play the good guy, I’ll play the morally corrupt guy. Because my job is to tell stories, and to tell stories in a way that allows people to see themselves and to change for the better.”
Majors added, “I pick roles where I go, ‘Is this going to challenge me to be a better human being? Is it going to hurt? Is it going to scare me?’ Because if I can overcome it, if I can heal the character, I can heal myself. If I heal myself and people are watching, other people will be healed.”
Do you think that Issa Rae should take Jonathan Majors up on his offer?
