Wendell Pierce Views!
Some people thought that this show was a glorification of policing in America but this is fully wrong and the situation is totally opposite. These responses is taken by Wendell personally which he even agreed on and stated, ‘ I know I sound defensive and I probably am, The Wire is personal for me. The Wire is also Art. The role of Art is to ignite the public discourse. Art is where we come together as a community to confront who we are as a society, decide what our values are, and then act on them’.
Wendell is wondered that how anyone can claim anything disfigured about the show after twelve years of the end. He stated in his interview with NME, that he still felt proud of how this show depicted the police force in America. In one interview he also discussed his latest project, Chinoye Chukwu’s hard-hitting Clemency. In this, he plays the role of husband of a prison warden.
