Oscars 2019: Trevor Noah had a cameo in 'Black Panther' that nobody knew about
Noah made a cameo in the most awesome movie of the year that no one knew of and now he gets candid about it at the Red Carpet
'Black Panther' is creating quite a roar this Oscars, and Trevor Noah is all set to play his own role in the movie's entry at the Oscars. As the Red Carpet once again glittered with the bevy of stars who are now arriving at the Dolby Theatre — formerly the Kodak Theatre — on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, Noah made his appearance in his usual sleek fashion. Clad in a black suit, the host of 'The Daily Show', got candid about his very significant role in the Ryan Coogler-directed movie.
As he agreed that a lot of people don't yet know about this, Noah confessed that he has a cameo in the movie. When asked why he isn't screaming at the top of his voice to declare his role in the movie, Noah said, "Humility is one of my strong suits, and so I try not to tell people that I was a big part of the 'Black Panther' success." On claiming that he played the navigation systems voice for the spaceship Griot, a Wakandan ship A.I., Noah jokingly mentioned, "It wouldn't go anywhere, where the Griot go? Does it turn left? You don't know, and he flies really fast. So without that voice, I think really the film itself wouldn't have gone anywhere and that's the kind of thing I look for in a role. Something where I get to support everyone without any of the credits."
Noah will also be announcing one of tonight's Best Picture nominees, as he supports the Marvel movie. The 'Black Panther' has been nominated for a total of seven Academy Awards, which include Best Picture, Best Original Music Score, Best Sound Mixing, Best Costume Design, Best Production Design, and Best Sound Editing. Noah isn't the only 'Black Panther' star on the carpet tonight, though.
The carpet has also seen the presence of Chadwick Boseman, who appeared in a black jacket-dress dipped in metallic sequins and a thigh-length black silk scarf. Angela Bassett, too, looked ravishing in her hot pink asymmetric gown by Lebanese designer, Reem Acra.
