You remember Where’s Waldo? That was me as a kid. And I could find Waldo faster than anybody. That’s what a photograph does for me. A photograph freezes time. It allows you to look at things, slow down, think about what’s out of place, and then fill in the blanks. That’s how you find Waldo.
I hope [the series] brings about some sort of change. I know it’s not going to be, we make a nice TV series and people will be inspired and all of a sudden we’ll have reform. But people can be inspired by this character and hopefully look at him as someone you want to emulate or at least is morally strong. The character is trying to think that of other people. He’s not just trying to solve everyone’s problems. That’s not possible. But he wants to inspire other people to take action and do what’s right. – Mike Colter
