Washington has stated he knew right away that he wanted to play the role of Detective Harris. Director of the film, Antoine Fuqua, described the character as:

...a bit of a gangster, but he’s charming, he’s sexy, and he’s intelligent and he’s mean and he’s tough. He’s the guy that we all wish we could be. It’s like meeting the devil for the first time.

Still a memorable film more than fifteen years after its release, Training Day has now been reimagined into a television series starring Bill Paxton and Justin Cornwell. Produced by Warner Bros. Television, Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Fuqua Films, the first episode will premiere tonight at 10/9c on CBS.
