Last year, Keegan-Michael Key was interviewed in Playboy by Eric Spitznagel. (I am just now getting to the article–my stack of magazines I need to catch up on is nuts.) Check out this passage:
You've said that you and [Jordan] Peele "fell in comedy love." How is that different from actual love? Key: It's not different at all. I get the same butterflies in my stomach. I saw him the other day...and I was like, wow, he's amazing.
That’s how I feel like a good number of people in my life, from the indomitable civil rights expert Jordyne Blaise to my brilliant cover designer Neil Wade to one of my favorite fraternity brothers Jonathan White.
It’s how I feel about my Coolidge friends and my Georgetown friends and my close coworkers and my good neighbors.
I’m really lucky to know who I know, and I am thankful for them.
