Lena Waithe is one of Hollywood’s hottest “triple-slashes” at the moment — she’s a writer (Master of None, Bones), producer (she created Showtime’s The Chi), and an actor. She stars in Steven Spielberg’s new cyberthriller, Ready Player One, and she told us this kind of brings things full circle for her. Why? Because, if not for video games, she probably wouldn’t have become a writer.
Ready Player One is now in theaters and The Chi, has been picked up for a second season in 2019.
