Craig Robinson definitely had some wild instances on the set of Killing It.

The actor and comic performs a python hunter on his new Peacock comedy collection—which premieres April 14—however snakes weren’t the one harmful reptile Robinson needed to take care of whereas filming in New Orleans.

“We’re filming within the swamp, and apparently, they caught an alligator throughout filming,” he solely advised CelebHomes Information’ Day by day Pop hosts Nina Parker and Essence Atkins on April 11. “I did not know the way shut I used to be to demise. That was cool.”

Fortunately, every little thing was beneath management when it got here to the present’s primary featured animal: Burmese pythons.

“There’s pretend snakes, there’s CGI snakes and there have been dwell snakes, and American Humane Society was current on set each time we had the dwell snakes,” he stated, joking that those he labored with have been “loving and cute.”

In contrast to his Killing It character—who begins looking down the slithery serpents for an opportunity to win $20,000—Robinson by no means needed to do something so excessive to make ends meet earlier than he made it to Hollywood.
