"RIP Richard Herd. A wonderful man and a true professional. We hadn't talked much before he arrived on set for Get Out. I asked him to think of the scene as a viagra ad trying to hide deep rage. He responded 'That sounds like all Viagra ads to me!' Then he absolutely nailed it," filmmaker Jordan Peele said on Twitter alongside footage of Herd portraying Roman Armitage in Get Out.
