In the high action drama, Wesley plays Mr. Johnson, the Pit Boss in a high-stakes game where wealthy individuals bet on crime.

 

Does he prefer film or television?:

“I still like film. I’m still a newbie in this but I can tell you it’s a big difference. The amount of time you have to create a feature film

Did he really turn down Empire?

“It was true. The show is doing well and the actors are great. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve offered and turned down. I really didn’t want to be part of a show were I had to carry the entire show.”

The Player airs on NBC Thursday’s at 10p/9p CST.
