‘Shots Fired’s’ Stephen Moyer on Why Pushing His Co-Star Was ‘a Lot of Fun’

Stephen Moyer relished those moments when his character on Fox’s “Shots Fired” didn’t always keep his hands to himself. Moyer, who played the morally questionable Lieutenant Breeland, told TheWrap, “My character walks the line of, ‘is he racist, or is he somebody who’s protecting his kids?’ You never quite know where he is or where he stands, and so he ends up in this very ambiguous place.” One scene that was tough but also creatively fulfilling for Moyer to play was the one in which Breeland confronts an African-American football player.
