The Deuce in the Media

Recommended Posts


Alan Sepinwall interviews the creators of The Deuce. Note - no huge spoilers, but comments may reflect the first episode which won't air for a couple of weeks.

I got to speak with Pelecanos and Simon last week about the genesis of the series (and the challenges of developing a ‘70s period piece at the same time that Vinyl was in the works), the inspiration for the identical twins (one a mob-affiliated bar manager, the other a degenerate gambler) played by star/producer/director James Franco, the important role of all the women behind the scenes (including director Michelle MacLaren and Maggie Gyllenhaal, who’s a producer and also plays a pimp-less prostitute named Candy), using so many Wire alums (Lawrence Gilliard Jr., Chris Bauer, Gbenga Akinnagbe, and Method Man, among others) in the cast, and a lot more.

is this returning?

September 9th. Just saw a trailer on HBO Now. Definitely looks late 70s/Boogie Nights-ish.

Seems like a major change in status (and hairstyles) for everyone...except the pimps. The only one I don't seem to remember spotting in the season 2 trailer (set to "September") was Jamie Neumann's character (the one who got her underarm slashed by her pimp in the seedy hotel stairwell early in the show). I thought she was a compelling presence and I'd like to see her back - unless I'm forgetting some major tragedy that befell her character?

As far as we know, she successfully left town to go live with her sister in upstate NY. College girl hid her at her apt, and then signed over the check her dad gave her at that country club party.
