Bad Guy, Good Books

Truth be told, Jamie Hector hasn’t always played the “nice guy.” As a gang leader on HBO’s The Wire, a recurring villain on NBC’s Heroes and a crime boss in the 2008 film Max Payne, you’d think he’s too busy figuring out new ways to be villainous on screen to have any time to pick up a book. You’re wrong! He exclusively shared his favorite books with me, and I’ll share them with you. Just don’t tell him I did.

 

Adults

The Celestine Prophecy: An Adventure by James Redfield

Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story by Ben Carson with Cecil Murphey

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind

Hard to believe that The Celestine Prophecy is <b>anyone's</b> favorite book (with the exception of the author, of course). Does Hector have a particular fondness for fiction works that are presented as nonfiction? If so, I can recommend a whole list of them.
