From the Vault – One on One with Isiah Whitlock, Jr.

Fans of The Wire who watch Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods on Netflix will recognize Isiah Whitlock, Jr., who played Clay Davis. They will also recognize his signature catchphrase “Sheeeeeit!”

We interviewed Whitlock in 2008 about The Wire and the origins of that iconic line delivery (which he first did on-screen in another Spike Lee film, The 25th Hour). If you missed it then, enjoy it now.
