Jason Dirden on the Moment the Bishop Meets Basie Skanks
Basie Skanks threw the Bishop off his game.
In season one of Greenleaf, the rivalry between the Bishop and crosstown preacher Basie deepens when Basie stands up for a young man who was alleged killed by the police by speaking at a #BlackLivesMatter protest. Meanwhile, the Bishop is pressured into the tough position when he learns that he's the shooter is a member of his congregation.
The Bishop finally decides to confront Basie man-to-man for the first time, a scene that Jason Dirden, the actor who portrays Basie, calls his favorite. It's a tense scene, and one that leaves the Bishop, who thought he'd easily dominate Basie, speechless. Here, Jason explains why he finds it was "fun" forcing the Bishop to recalibrate.
