Saints’ Celebrity Fan No. 5: Wendell Pierce

New Orleans native Wendell Pierce is a huge fan of everything in the Big Easy, and that includes the NOLA Saints.

Pierce is best-known for his role as Detective Bunk Moreland in HBO’s “The Wire” and has featured in several other shows and movies including “Malcolm X” and “Selma.” The actor has been known to dabble in theater from time to time, playing the lead role of Willy Loman in the 2019 revival of a play Death of a Salesman on the West End in London.

Pierce is perhaps one of the more knowledgeable Saints fans on this list, frequently keeping track of roster moves over the years and staying active on Twitter.
