[On what his favorite role is]
Eamonn Walker: Kareem Said, the Muslim prisoner in Oz. As an actor, I like to be in productions that are not frightened to push the envelope. Oz did that, whether it was dealing with religion, sexuality or crime. As far as I'm concerned, the series broke the mold on American TV. Because it was an HBO series, you had to buy it so it wasn't on prime time and could cover all sorts of taboo things that are normally only caught in movies. Series like The Sopranos came after and they all took bits of Oz.
