The Wire’s Sen. Davis Will Teach Student Actors How To Pronounce ‘Sheeeeeeit!’

It’s not “sheeeit” it’s actually “sheeeeeeeeeeeit.” Well, at least that’s how The Wire’s Isiah Whitlock, Jr says it.

The veteran actor who played Sen.Clay Davis– in what many consider to have been the best show on television—is most famously known for his pronunciation of the word. Now, as he gears up for the launch of The Whitlock Academy, Whitlock will teach a class of serious student actors how to properly hold the E, along with how to be a good actor.

Listen, we didn’t make this up. This is indeed a thing. Watch the video up top.
