Exclusive! Isaiah Washington and Michael K. Williams To Star In Indie Thriller "The Suspect"

I had the pleasure to interview actor Isaiah Washington yesterday, an interview which I will post later this week, and he provided some details on a project he and The Wire star Michael Kenneth Williams are both set to produce and star in.

The Suspect, beginning production next month, will be directed by Life Garland from a script by Stuart Connelly. Connelly is a National Education Press Award winner and author of several novels, primarily thrillers. He co-wrote Behind the Dream: The Making of the Speech that Tranformed a Nation, a thrilling behind-the-scenes chronicle of events leading up to the “I Have A Dream” speech, as told by Clarence Jones, MLK‘s close confidant and co-writer of the speech.

In an email from Connelly this morning, he provided the following synopsis for The Suspect:

Two African American social scientists pose as bank robbers in an effort to understand the racial dynamics of small-town law enforcement. However, their experiment takes an unplanned, deadly turn.

Sounds a little like a more serious “Stir Crazy”


I’m diggin how they ‘flip the script/premise’ on this, i’ll be checking this one out, for some reason, i’m thinking,could this be a [script analysis/blueprint] on how to update, god please, the Spook who Sat by the Door..? it’s worth investingating:)?.


This sounds stupid to me.

Two Black men decide to rob a bank to understand racial dynamics in small town law enforcement??????????


Since I like the actors, I will give this a benefit of a doubt and wait till more info comes out… but come on.


Hmm…that synopsis sounds a bit puzzling but I’m a fan of both of these actors so I’m excited to hear about them working together.
