The captain of The Matrix‘s Nebuchadnezzar hovercraft is great at fighting in slo-mo and giving exposition. But is he funny? The answer’s a definite “yes”—at least, according to Anthony Anderson, who stars with Laurence Fishburne (a.k.a. Morpheus) in the upcoming sitcom Blackish. “Laurence started out on Pee Wee’s Playhouse back in the day,” the actor told Essence magazine at this past weekend’s Essence Fest. “People forget about his sense of humor and his comedic timing and abilities.”

Click below for more on Anderson and Fishburne’s latest project, which premieres this fall on ABC—and check Essence for more fest videos. (Sadly, you won’t find any of Prince. And just when we thought he had made his peace with the Internet.)
