Very good interview, and a fantastically eloquent, insightful guy.

He was also the paedo at the start of "The Devil's Advocate".

He used to be a salesman at Dunder Mifflin Syracuse too.

They talk a bit about Mike O'Malley.  I didn't realize that he parlayed hosting Nickelodeon Guts into a career creating and running shows.  Crazy

First recollection of him was on 3rd Watch. biatcharacter that was an ass until he found Jesus IIRC. Also had his funny moments. Makes me Think of a balder gruffier Lenny Brisco.

TL;DR great actor.

Goddamn filters.

At this point, there aren't many TV shows or movies this guy hasn't been in.
Guys the Daniel Von Bargen of the 2000s.

Tyler Durden is a figment of Edward Norton's imagination.
Bruce Willis was dead the whole time.
Kevin Spacey was Kaiser Soze.
Rosebud is a sled.
And Luke knew Leia was his sister.

Crewmannumber6: Rewatching The Wire right now


Same here but for the first time.
Im up to season 4, Petyr just won elections. I really like the 4th season and the focus on the kids.
The scariest gangster is Nailgun Girl. That character has no empathy for anything.
But the kids angle is very good.
The cherry on top is the dealers in Hamsterdam shouting pandemic .

Yes.and very credible as such. He nailed the disgusting oiliness of such a character.

Omg yes.
I will never watch that again.

I have have also included spoilers in my reply to that post.
Apologies, im fuzzy on the statutes of limitation on such things.
One thing in my defense, I had watched lots of you tube clips and when Williams died, someone recommended I watch it. I had held off on it because I thought it was all junkies and crackwhores all the time. I find watching depictions of that stuff difficult to take in even in fiction.
If the fellow Farker who recommended it reads this, THANK YOU. The acting is phenomenal, the plotlines interesting and often clever. The photography is superb and lots of subtleties are woven in the background. A good example is when Stringer meets Clay and learns of the result of his political ambitions, the shot is stunning, the dome of the state capitol looming over stringer, crushing his silhouette. Good stuff.

The guy who played Donnie, one of Omar's protectors in prison was the real life inspiration for the Omar character.

I believe I also read that (SPOILERS AHEAD)

Omar's outlandish escape and injury in season 5 was something that really happened to him.
 
2021-09-15 11:35:43 PM  
Is he the "I seen a pig!" cop in True Blood?

Did that guy never kill anyone in real life?  His wiki says armed robbery and he wore a wire for a contract killing.  I know Snoop(her real alias) was convicted for murder.  I'm glad both of them cleaned up their lives, and both seem to have done a lot of community service/outreach to try and stop the cycle

Looks like he did.  Here's a NYT obit I found.

Donnie Andrews, Basis for Omar of 'The Wire,' Dies at 58 - The New York Times (nytimes.com)

And yeah, glad to see they were able to do some good in the latter part of their lives.


On a separate David Simon note, I've recently seen some set photos from his newest project in production.  There's a smattering of The Wire actors in there, and it was kind of amusing to see the actors who played Dukie and Savino now playing cops.
