Never let it be said that Barack Obama and King Arthur don’t have something in common. They do—at least on Netflix, where Devon Terrell has played them both. The American-Australian actor played the former president in the film Barry before signing on to play a young, struggling Arthur in Netflix’s new fantasy series Cursed, which hit the streaming service this past weekend. The A.V. Club talked to him about studying for the role, all of the hair tests that went into getting Arthur’s on-screen locks just so, and whether or not he pulls out his Obama as a party trick.
