Wood Harris knows all too well from filming The Wire how important it is to have good energy on set. Harris played Avon Barksdale for six years on the hit TV series and now, he’s starring as Barry Fouray, a ’90s music mogul, in VH1’s upcoming original movie The Breaks.
Harris is starring in the movie along with former Wire co-star Mack Wilds. As Harris tells us, “there’s so much of The Wire” on the set of The Breaks.
“You can do movies and sometimes, you can’t pick up a vibe,” he says. “This set is young and bubbling. There’s so much of The Wire there.” We can’t wait to watch it all play out on January 4 at 9 p.m., when The Breaks premieres. Can you?
