Have been watching clips of Chadwick Boseman since his passing 8/28/20. Chadwick said his ultimate favorite actor is this man: Jeffery Wright. Chadwick said Jeffrey is a chameleon. Yes he is. Hollywood don’t wait until Mr Wright is gone to give him his propers.

I just love the way he describes his characters. It feels like he really enjoys talking about them, being part of the movies, and he shows a deep understanding of each one of them. His facial expressions give me the idea that he loves his characters and they are all a part of him in some way. HE REALLY IS AN UNDERRATED ACTOR!

This Man right here... I search for movies with his name.... Because I know whether or not he is in it for 15 minutes or 2 hours I'm going to get my times worth. Hollywood has to write material worthy of His time...That"s just how bad Mr. Jeffery Wright is. Chameleon...

I’d honestly be super curious to hear his thoughts on his role in TLOU2, even though it was short-lived (and came out after this vid). I’m sure filming that mo-cap was a unique experience

I'm a huge James Bond fan, but his Narcisse character on Boardwalk was so hateable it almost ruined his Agent Leiter for me.

This man slowburned into my list of favorite actors. Saw him in a couple of films (like James Bond) where he did not really stand out to me at first. Loved him in Westworld of course and ever since that, I started noticing how good he is in so many different kind of roles. Even just his evolution in Westworld is so good, it's alsmost like he is two different actors playing the shy nerdy Bernard in the first season to a badass version in the third season where he tweaked minor things to make it the same character, but completely different. Really a great actor. He needs some more leading roles!

Jeffrey Wright is every thorough actor's favorite actor. He's highly regarded within the inner circle. Not so much in the outer. Its the price you pay when you're about the business(craft) and not the show(fame). Blessing to have worked with him as an actor.

*Mr Jeffery Wright* was a major part of why _Westworld's_ *Bernard Low* was so unique, but too bad the writers butchered that character and made it useless. God bless *Jeffery.* I can't wait to see him as *Commissioner Gordon.*

He’s one of those amazing performers that early in his career, unless you were aware of him, and paying attention, you might not notice it’s same actor in two different roles. Perfect example is Peoples and King Jr. I saw both those movies when they came out, but had no idea Jeffry played them both. It’s been such a treat to follow his career.
