If you missed Wednesday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Wire and Treme vet Wendell Pierce, today is your lucky day. The co-star of NBC’s brand new The Michael J. Fox Show, which premiered last night, was born and raised in NOLA, the epicenter of the twerking phenomenon. We couldn’t resist asking him what he thought of this craze going national, but we were totally surprised (and delighted!) by his colorful and scholarly remarks on the subject.
If you missed yesterday’s Very VH1 Spreecast with Wire and Treme vet Wendell Pierce, you must have very warm legs right now — the rest of us got the pants charmed off of us. (Sorry!) We could basically listen to his voice for hours, which is why we’re thrilled that he co-stars as Michael J. Fox’s newsroom boss Harris Green on The Michael J. Fox Show, which premieres tonight with two episodes tonight at 9 pm ET on NBC. And that’s also why we were thrilled when a fan (OK, it was me) asked: What would “The Wendell Pierce Show” be?
Maybe you know him as cigar-smoking, good-humored, oddly named Det. Bunk Moreland from The Wire. Or hardworking trombone player Antoine Batiste on Treme. Soon enough, you’ll be recognizing Wendell Pierce as Michael J. Fox’s newsroom boss on The Michael J. Fox Show. But today, you’ll know him as our very special guest on the Very VH1 Spreecast.
Join us at 1:45 pm ET right here and ask Wendell everything you’ve been dying to know about his shows, his Broadway work, growing up in New Orleans, working with Michael J. Fox and more. Click on the comments button on the upper right corner to participate.
