Show Me a Hero Trailer: Oscar Isaac Learns That Government Is Hard

By

The full trailer for David Simon and Paul Haggis's six-part HBO miniseries Show Me a Hero is here, and it stars Oscar Isaac as beleaguered Yonkers mayor Nicholas Wasicsko, whose town is split asunder by racial tensions when he tries to bring an affordable housing development into a predominantly white neighborhood. People are not happy! And while the trailer shows that Isaac can definitely pull off a mustache, it still leaves one big question unanswered: In terms of racial enlightenment, is this going to be more like The Wire or Crash?
