Wendell Pierce


Born: 8 / 12 / 1962 , New Orleans , Usa –

BIOGRAPHY:

Pierce has been in over 30 films, appeared in nearly 50 television shows and has performed in dozens of stage productions. He worked on the HBO dramas The Wire and Treme. He appeared in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 as “J. Jenks”.

For his role in Treme, Pierce learned to play the trombone, though he relied on sound double, Stafford Agee of the Rebirth Brass Band. Agee played off-camera for Pierce, syncing his trombone with Wendell’s motions for authenticity.

Pierce was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead for his portrayal of “Joe” in Four, playing a married, closeted gay man who steps out on his family with a young white man he met online. The film was released on September 13, 2013, around the same time that The Michael J. Fox Show debuted on NBC, in which Pierce played Michael J. Fox’s character’s boss until the show’s cancellation some five months later.
