Justice Smith is obsessed with quality and is a pure student of the craft of acting. He has strong thoughts on the business and isn’t afraid of the discourse surrounding his movies. In this interview, Bimma and Justice dive deep into the negative reaction to his film “American Society of Magical Negros.” During the audience Q&A, Justice and a fan have a heart-to-heart about what the film meant to the Black community. Bimma and Justice also break down his latest film, A24’s “I Saw The TV Glow,” and how Justice views the role as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. They cover race in Hollywood, growing up biracial, his fears and career aspirations, and RuPaul wanting him to play him in a biopic.
