Jeffrey Wright Lands Series Regular Role On HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire' As Harlem Boss

This is big!

Jeffrey Wright has booked a series regular role on HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, beginning during it’s upcoming fourth season, playing – you may want to sit down for this one – Valentin Narcisse, Doctor of Divinity, philanthropist, student of culture and the man who runs Harlem!

I smell an instant classic performance by Mr Wright. One for the ages! The Emmy Awards should just slap his name on one of those trophies right now…

Ok, so I’m getting ahead of myself.

Season 4 is currently being filmed.

Up next, catch Mr Wright in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and George Tillman Jr.’s The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January.
