Us features great acting from everyone in the cast including an Oscar worthy duo performance from Lupita Nyong’o, who portrays both Adelaide, a loving mother and wife, along with “Red,” Adelaide’s doppelgänger. Winston Duke, of Black Panther fame, plays the comedic father, while Shahadi Wright and Evan Alex play the parts of daughter Zora and son Jason.
To showcase just how tight knit this group of actor’s are as a family, Nyong’o shared a video to her Instagram account with the caption “Troublemaker ain’t scared of Us,” spotlighting the four actors rapping in character as Wilson drives. The original track sees lyrics by Robyn Hood of Truth Teller Productions and music created by Chris Herbie Holland.
