I can't wait to see what a Jordan Peele horror film looks like. While I am saddened by the end of "Key & Peele," I also think it's important that both Jordan Peele and Keegan Michael Key are able to follow their particular muses. Watching their work carefully, I think Key is the more powerful comic presence, relentlessly funny, but Peele is the guy whose character work gets under my skin.

It’s long overdue.”
