Look, let's not pretend that we're fooling anyone. At this point, Pete Davidson has a reputation for playing a...specific type of character. IYKYK.
Whether it's Judd Apatow's dramedy The King of Staten Island or Machine Gun Kelly's recent stoner comedy Good Mourning, if you see Pete's name in the credits, you pretty much know what you're getting from him.
And he's very much aware of this! He went into how he feels as if he's been typecast on a recent episode of Kevin Hart'sHart to Heart interview series.
Pete explained that he feels that he's "done a lot of shit" and he isn't just "a big fucking dummy" — but the roles he's recently been offered suggest that people think otherwise.
"I’m at a place where I’ll do other shows," he explained, "and you come in and they have stuff written for you, and all the dialogue is like, ‘I’m a big fuckin’ idiot! Hey, let’s smoke a doobie! Aw yeah!’"
He added, "Every joke is just like, ‘Well, you know me, I’m a big fuckin’ idiot!’”
Pete also said that, even though "being self-deprecating" is "his thing," he'd like to branch out in terms of the roles he plays.
“I’m trying to find the healthy balance between, ‘Ooh, that’s nice, he’s confident and not, like, ew,' you know, but still has some sort of humbleness," he explained.
"Because I think I’ll always be sort of humble and self-deprecating, but I don’t want people to think I’m a fucking idiot.”
