Between all the Comic-Con Star Wars and X-Men: Apocalypse coverage, today has involved a lot of Oscar Isaac related discussions and gifs on Tumblr. Now HBO has released the first trailer for the new David Simon miniseries Show Me a Hero and we might as well call this Oscar Isaac Day. This is an excellent way to start the week. *insert dancing gif here*
In the six-part miniseries Isaac’s plays real-life Yonkers, New York mayor Nick Wasicsko who was elected in 1987 and immediately faced a huge social issue after a federal court ordered low-income housing to be built in the wealthy part of town. This was met with much opposition and Isaac’s Wasicsko is the man caught in the middle.
Check out the trailer below including Isaac’s ‘tache, Winona Ryder asking “what you going to do?” and Catherine Keener’s rather large spectacles. Catch parts one and two on Sunday, August 16.
