Wendell Pierce, who famously played Detective William “Bunk” Moreland on The Wire, has stated his desire to take over the role on Twitter. “I am publicly starting a campaign to voice the role myself on The Cleveland Show,” Pierce has stated, tagging in show creator Seth McFarlane.

Of course, The Cleveland Show actually went off the air in 2013, but the character of Cleveland Brown now appears in Family Guy, the show that originated the character.

Wendell Pierce has never appeared on Family Guy, nor The Cleveland Show or Seth McFarlane’s other animated sitcom, American Dad.

At the time of writing, the tweet has been “liked” over 28,000 times.

Several other characters across multiple animated shows are currently looking to recast. Missy in Big Mouth, Molly in Central Park, and several characters on The Simpsons are also seeking new voice actors.

Family Guy wrapped up its 18th season earlier this year. A start date for Season 19 has not been announced yet.
