While Black Panther’s cast-list already feels like a who’s who of Hollywood up and comers, it turns out another major player had a cameo in the Marvel movie and nobody noticed. Thanks to one bat-eared Redditor, we now know that The Daily Show’s host, Trevor Noah, made an appearance too — but probably not in the way you’d think.
Do you remember when Martin Freeman’s Everett K. Ross is left in charge of a spaceship to help the Wakandans defend their country? Well, that ship had an onboard computer named Griot, and it was voiced by Noah.
In a “between the scenes” take on The Daily Show, Noah talked about his experience working on the movie, emphasizing how — as a South African comedian — working in a movie that features Xhosa, a South African language, was a special experience.
“It was extra special for me because people speak Xhosa in the movie. So, there were subtitles and I was like, ‘Don’t need your subtitles.’ I don’t need your subtitles. Get rid of the subtitles! This is just for me right now. Nobody else listen. This reminds me of my mom.’”
