J Blakeson’s Culprits shows how someone goes from a high-class thief to a doting PTA dad. Played by actor Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Joe is happily married with two kids he’s busy taking to school Monday through Friday. But besides packing school lunches, Joe was once a part of an elite band of thieves.
When a mysterious assassin starts picking off each of Joe’s fellow thieves, he and what’s left of his former crew have to figure out who’s after their lives before they lose each of them. Stewart-Jarrett is quickly turning himself leading man on the silver screen after coming from roles in the UK’s Misfits and Utopia. The 37-year-old has taken on horror with a role in Nia DaCosta’s Candyman, will be a drag queen hellbent on revenge in the upcoming Femme, and is a scene-stealer with his role in Culprits.
In the upcoming mystery thriller “Femme,” drag queen Aphrodite gets even with her attacker.
INTO spoke with Stewart-Jarrett about his latest show, creating on-screen Black queer representation through his character, and what role he’d actually play in a heist.
