Sus, she wrote! Angela Lansbury taught the Among Us Basics for Glass Onion Cameo
Rian Johnson described Among Us to a very patient Angela Lansbury for her cameo in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery.
Benoit Blanc’s opening scene in Glass Onion brings him together with a collection of virtual stage mates who would make any Hollywood party blush. Among the video conferencing callers playing the Among Us video game starring Blanc in the tub is film and TV icon Angela Lansbury, whose understandable ignorance of the game’s mechanics is said to have caused a charming generational collision The Hollywood Reporter.
The hilarious reintroduction of the famous detective from Knives Out sees him in a state of considerable melancholy for which his very famous friends (Angela Lansbury, Stephen Sondheim, Natasha Lyonne and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar) have lovingly gathered to cheer him up by distracting him with a video game. Blanc, not understanding the intricacies, loses immediately, for which he is openly taunted by Lansbury and the others.
Lansbury, who rose to worldwide fame for her role as Jessica Fletcher in the classic crime television series Murder, She Wrote, struggled to grasp the nuances of the 2018 multiplayer game as director Rian Johnson did his best to give the famous actress something to give the background she needed for the scene.
Lansbury, always professional, patiently listened to Johnson’s explanation before admitting that the source of the new generation’s crime stories was a mystery to her, telling the director, “Just tell me what the lines are. I’ll trust you.” Talent that she was, Lansbury’s brief performance came off as sharp as if she were a crime video game veteran.
Johnson, a longtime enthusiast of the genre, was thrilled to have one of his biggest stars play a part in his latest work, albeit shortly before Lansbury’s death on October 11, 2022. Her legacy lives on in her final film scene in Johnson’s Glass Onion and Hers incredible 8 decades of film and television work.
