1. Lakeith Stanfield
First, let’s start off with the obvious. The lead character of the movie, Cash, is the epitome of the working class Black man buying into the American dream of success. Who better to bring humor, quirk and absurdity to this character than Lakeith Stanfield. His airy roll as Darius in Atlanta should serve as proof that Lakeith will put his own special spin on any character.
