The Deuce is an American drama television series set in and around Times Square, New York. It was created and written by author and former police reporter David Simon and his frequent collaborator George Pelecanos.
The Knockturnal: Oh, that’s my show. Kyla Pratt!
Gary Carr: Yeah, you know that. Amazing, amazing. We just like drowned ourselves in that stuff, man. Those are great shows. We’d re-enact our own scenes and stuff like that. I guess when you’re a young kid in London, anyway, watching TV from America, you end up just like imitating, I guess. But for this particular role, I had a brilliant, brilliant dialect coach, Jerome Butler. He worked with me on a previous project, as well, a film where I had to play a guy from New Orleans. Jerome is so detailed. I’m playing an African American guy in the 1970’s, so patterns of speech, the musicality of the voice is very different to what we’d expect now. Yeah, I just love doing detailed work.
The eight-episode season airs on Sundays (9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT).
