Dennis Lehane on Black Bird, Ray Liotta, and Why He Loved Working on The Wire
Jul 08 2022
During the wide-ranging interview, Lehane talked about what drew him to the material, why it’s six episodes, what it was like working with Ray Liotta and watching his performance up close, how he worked with Paul Walter Hauser to add things to his character that weren’t in the script, and what happened to American Son (his adaptation of A Prophet). He also talked about how he’s finally going to direct some episodes of his next television project, what he’d love to make if he could get the rights, and what someone should read if they’ve never checked out his novels.
