Boardwalk Empire Season 4 Welcomes Jeffrey Wright
The Manchurian Candidate, Syriana, Casino Royale, Source Code, The Ides of March and the upcoming blockbuster sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, all have one actor in common. That would be Mr. Jeffrey Wright, who has just landed series regular status on HBO’s antiquated hit, Boardwalk Empire.
Wright has flirted with TV work in the past. He was part of the Angels in America cast and appeared in a handful of Homicide: Life on the Street episodes, but his new role is a first. He’s never been a series regular before.
The crime drama is gearing up a fourth season and will welcome Wright as Valentin Narcisse, the man who runs Harlem. I daresay this is a role Wright will really be able to bite into. Deadline calls the character a “Doctor of Divinity, philanthropist [and] student of culture.” Watchers of the top notch Prohibition Era drama know many real life figures pop up in Boardwalk Empire. This leaves me wondering if Narcisse is based on a real person. The cameras are already rolling and fans can expect a debut later this year. Of course, we’ll make the announcement when the network releases the official premier date.
Wright has worked with HBO before. One collaboration is a film called Boycott, which put Wright into the shoes of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. This won Wright an AFI Award.
