WIRE Reunion!! Clarke Peters Joins Winona Ryder, James Belushi, Daniel Stern, Alfred Molina, Catherine Keener And Oscar Isaac For David Simon’s HBO Class-Warfare Miniseries SHOW ME A HERO!!
Clarke Peters, who worked with David Simon on both “Treme” and “The Wire,” has joined the cast of Simon’s latest HBO miniseries “Show Me A Hero.”
Oscar Isaac (“Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Star Wars: Episode VII”) will star in “Show Me A Hero” as Nick Wasicsko, the real-life 28-year-old mayor of Yonkers, N.Y., who saw his political career derailed after he was forced by a federal court to build low-income housing in his city’s whitest neighborhoods.
Peters, who played Lester Freamon on "The Wire," now portrays a consultant hired to prepare low-earning citizens for what they can expect when they move into their new, more affluent neighborhood.
Catherine Keener (“Captain Phillips,” “Bad Grandpa”) plays the leader of an East Yonkers homeowners association whose views on the project change radically once she gets to know its prospective tenants.
Others in the cast include Daniel Stern (“City Slickers,” “Manhattan”), James Belushi (“According To Jim”), Michael Stahl-David (“Cloverfield”), Winona Ryder (“Star Trek”), Alfred Molina (“Spider-Man 2”), LaTanya Richardson (“100 Centre Street”), Terry Kinney (“Oz”), Natalie Paul (“Smash”) and Jon Bernthal (“The Walking Dead”).
The six-hour miniseries is based on the book by Lisa Belkin and will be co-scripted by writer-producer Simon, who masterminded numerous other projects for the channel, including “The Wire,” “Treme” and two other miniseries: “The Corner” and “Generation Kill.”
