Still more prominent roles would follow, such as Jimmie Lee Jackson in the acclaimed civil rights movie "Selma" (2014), a co-starring role in the indie hit "Dope" (2015), & Don Cheadle's "Miles Ahead" (2016). The same year, Stanfield joined the cast of "Atlanta," starring alongside series creator Donald Glover. He also starred in Jordan Peele's "Get Out" (2017).
