‘Boardwalk Empire’ season 4 to have Jeffrey Wright as Valentin Narcisse a regular
Season 4 of ‘Boardwalk Empire’ is currently in production and the popular HBO show has announced that Jeffrey Wright will be series regular for the new season.
Deadline reported this week that “Valentin Narcisse, Doctor of Divinity, philanthropist, student of culture and the man who runs Harlem” will be key in the upcoming fourth season.
Series creator and show-runner Terence Winter told reporters that ‘Boardwalk Empire’ season 4 would see a bit of a time jump into 1924, often seen as the year gangsters like Lucky Luciano and Al Capone truly came into their own. Winter also previously confirmed of ‘Boardwalk Empire’ season 4 that Gretchen Mol and Kelly MacDonald would indeed return, despite their ambiguous presences at the end of season 3, while Michael Shannon (Nelson Van Alden) would have a stronger presence as a member of Al Capone’s crew.
Wright has only dabbled in television in his two decades onscreen; this is his first role as a series regular.
