Remember at the 2013, 2014 AND 2015 Oscar’s when it was supposed to be Lupita Nyongo’s moment but her brother
LuPeter was running around like a chicken with his head cut off taking pics with all of the celebs? From photo bombing Ellen Degeneres to getting a coveted pic with Queen Bey and Common, it must be rare for Peter to be in such swanky settings. He must have networked with a casting director because he just landed his first movie role!
Via Shadow & Act:
The novel tells the story of a woman named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion. The book then tracks two stories: the story in the novel, titled “Nocturnal Animals,” which tells of a man whose family vacation turns violent and deadly; and the second tells the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.
Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal star as the films married couple. While we haven’t heard of Peter having any formal acting training like his Yale alumna sister, Lupita, we’re bet the pair are going to run lines together and he’s going to do an awesome job. Check out some pics of him fanning out at the Oscars.

1. Why Can’t We Have Peter Nyong’o’s Life?
Lupita Nyong’o is pretty amazing with her Oscar and all, but can we all give her brother Peter (who inserted himself into the greatest selfie of all time at the 2014 Oscars) some much-needed shine? Since Peter is a selfie pro and has no shame in sharing the dozens of pics he takes with our favorite superstars, we scanned his Instagram for the more cool photos and shared them in this gallery.
