Interviews

Published on June 22nd, 2021 | by Darren Paltrowitz

Jamie Hector is known to millions for his iconic role of drug kingpin Marlo Stanfieldon HBO’s critically-acclaimed series The Wire, yet that is only one of his notable roles. Hector has made a mark as Detective Jerry Edgar on Bosch, the first-ever Amazon Original series, which is currently in its seventh and final season. You have also seen Hector in Power, Wu-Tang: An American Saga, Heroes, The Strain and Queen Of The South, much of that work overlapping with his time on The Wire or Bosch.

Also busy off-screen, in 2007, Jamie Hector founded Moving Mountains Inc., a non-profit theater-based organization in New York City. Through Moving Mountaings Inc., inner-city youth from ages 6 to 21 can study the arts — including drama, dance, vocal and film studies — and develop their innate talents in a safe and creative environment free of charge. As a Brooklyn-native and son of 2 Haitian immigrants, giving back to the community he grew up in has always been a passion and priority for Hector. The Mark Wahlberg Foundation, LL Cool J, Jesse Williams, Mona Scott-Young, Steve Buscemi and The Wire co-stars Sonja Sohn and Michael K. Williams are among those who have supported and/or directly worked with Moving Mountains over the last decade and a half. Meanwhile, the organization recently honored Whoopi Goldberg at its Move Mountains For The Arts fundraising event.

On June 1, 2021, I had the pleasure of speaking with Jamie Hector himself via Zoom, as embedded below. We spoke about Bosch — which the final season of premieres via Amazon this Friday, June 25, 2021 — The Wire, Moving Mountains and future career goals and plans for Hector within our conversation.
