    In fact, the pair may be transcending from our phone screens to the big screen.

    The 5-year-old and his father recently gained a new level of traction after re-creating a now viral clip of a reporter questioning one of the rioters who stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6.

    "When I saw [the rioter's video], I just knew Brice would knock it out of the park," Randy told BuzzFeed. "He is a natural. He has always been a character and has never taken any acting classes."

    After seeing their clip, which boasts a growing 6.5 million views on TikTok and 15 million views on Twitter, Ava DuVernay — yes, the Ava DuVernay behind Queen Sugar, A Wrinkle in Time, and When They See Us — expressed a great interest in casting them.

    “I’ve watched four different videos of this kid over the past 25 hours in which he mimics four very different kinds of characters and my new goal of 2021 is to meet him and cast him in something somewhere somehow,” DuVernay tweeted. “And his partner. Obsessed.”

    Though all movie talks are currently hush-hush, Randy did mention that if it were up to Brice, his son would want to be a superhero.
