Jordan Peele is retiring from acting as the producer and comedian works on his next directorial role. 

The 41-year-old Get Out director and Key & Peele actor has officially announced his retirement from acting roles.

During an interview as part of an ActBlue fundraiser with Bradley Whitford, he admitted, “I like watching my movies. I can watch the films I direct [but] watching me perform just feels like, it’s a bad kind of masturbatory. It’s masturbation you don’t enjoy.”

Peele continued to explain, “I feel like I got to do so much and it is a great feeling. When I think about those great moments when you’re basking in something you said that feels funny. When I think about all that, I think I got enough.”

The now-former actor is working on an untitled horror project in which he directs and is slated for release in 2022.
