Wendell Pierce Bunks-out (on Twitter) over the Super Bowl
Also, for a few brief moments, the Bunk-est.
Actor Wendell Pierce took to Twitter to talk about the big game — and tweeted from the perspective of Bunk, the eye-rolling, good-hearted, foul-mouthed detective he played on HBO’s The Wire (the show that made America fascinated and repulsed by Baltimore institutionalism).
The tweets, which mixed quotes with exclamatory ad-libbing, were a welcome reminder of the show, and a shot to the heart of its fans (like me) who are still trying to get our friends to watch it.
