Lil Rel Howery On His Character In Rian Johnson’s ‘Poker Face’: “It’s Very Villainous”

Co-star Lil Rel Howery gave some indications about the upcoming Peacock mystery-drama series Poker Face tonight on the red carpet for Jordan Peele‘s Nope premiere, despite Rian Johnson withholding many details about the project.

Howery, who starred in the Fox sitcom Rel from 2018 to 2019, isn’t playing for laughs this time.

Regarding Poker Face, he told Deadline, “Aw, that was fun to do.” I just finished it a month ago, I think. As a result, it is plainly dramatic and not funny. You don’t often see me playing the bad guy. It’s really evil, and I loved every aspect of it.

When pressed for more information, Howery retreated a little and said the character is the “kind” of evil.
I’m just going to say, “Type, yeah. He said, “I probably shouldn’t have said it,” with a loud laugh.


Natasha Lyonne, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Adrien Brody, Stephanie Hsu, Benjamin Bratt, David Castaeda, Dascha Polanco, Chlo Sevigny, Ellen Barkin, S. Epatha Merkerson, and Judith Light are also included in the anthology-style Poker Face. The 10-episode series is advertised as a lighthearted, character-driven mystery by writer-director EP Johnson (Knives Out, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), but little more information is available.

Additionally serving as EPs on the 10-episode MRC Television series that was ordered in March 2021 are Ram Bergman, Nena Rodrigue, and Lyonne.
