It turns out that many may have missed that ‘The Daily Show’s’ own, Trevor Noah was in the record-breaking film, Black Panther. Some would point out seeing Noah’s names in the credits but couldn’t figure out where he was in the actual film.
Now that the film has been out for several months, people are finally noticing Noah’s few lines as the character, Griot. Griot (Noah) appears in a scene where character Everett Ross takes control of a Wakandan fighter jet. If you listen closely you can hear Noah’s voice as the artificial intelligence system in the jet.
It’s not so surprising: Only Noah’s voice is featured in the film, in a brief, action-packed moment. Noah voices Griot, the artificial intelligence system that guides Everett Ross (played by Martin Freeman) as he pilots a Wakandan fighter jet. (A griot usually describes a West African entertainer, storyteller or oral historian.) Noah has less than 10 lines as a bot with a slightly exaggerated African accent, designed by Black Panther’s tech genius baby sister Shuri (Letitia Wright). His voiceover appears in tense scenes of shooting and flying, which is probably why most people missed it.
