Michael K. Williams, or better known as Omar Little among the Wire fans, is keeping busy with a new project in life after the Wire. He plays Dax of the new eight part drama The Philantripist. The show also stars Neve Campbell and James Purefoy (from HBO Rome fame).
The story revolves around a billionaire globetrotting philantropist helping those in need.
Check out the full story and some behind the scene footage at NBC Philantropist website.
The Telegraph has an interesting article on the Wire cast and what they are up to now that the show has finished.
Last time i spotted my personal favourite “McNulty” was in Frank Millers 300.
Here’s the second part of Pete Handelman’s brilliant homage to the Wire, great stuff
This is the most fun fan homage to The Wire I’ve seen yet and telling by the ratings on youtube I’m not the only one to think so. Thanks to creator Pete Handelman who posted a link in the comments. Loved you’re Bunk and Omar characters ! Look forward to episode 2
Clay Davis is one slick smooth talker. Damn, he got ‘em all wrapped around his little finger. Sheeeeiiit. Don’t really like that man.
McNulty’s trying to do good with his new resources, but I’m still fairly confident that he will f*ck up soon. The writing’s on the wall unfortunately. With the homeless people getting faces and families, it’s all getting too personal.
Same thing with Omar. Good to see him giving Michael a bit of scare, but I’m still pretty sure he will make a misstake soon – it’s just too personal for him. And that limp leg doesn’t really help either…
Bunk seem to be about to crack soon, don’t think he’ll rat on McNulty or Freamon, but he’s pretty pissed off. Also liked the scene when he’s interrogating Michael. Hope he gets to Chris and Snoop soon.
btw, did you notice that Dominic West (playing McNulty) directed this episode? How cool is that!
I’ll leave you today with a brilliant edit of Clay Davis – sheeeeeeeeeiiiiiit!
Yepp, a little bit late I know. But I’ve finally got the time to type up my impressions of episode 5 (just in time for tonights episode 6, can’t wait!).
For the first time during the course of this show, I’m starting to doubt McNulty. I admin I thought him and Freamon were doing the right thing, but with the twist and turns of this episode their means doesn’t seem to justify their motives. Is it all starting spiralling out of control? It was however pure joy to watch the confusion in the room when mcnulty and the young journo (never remember his name…) where lying their asses off about the phone calls.
And even with the success of a wire tap, it seem that the Greeks are a lot more sofisticated than the average dealers using secure channels on their phones and such.
And Omar, what a mess he got himself in. Hope I gets out on top, but from the looks of it that won’t happen.
Damn, Marlo is one cold gangster. Looking at his face, not even a raised eye brow, when Prop Joe gets the bullet. I really hope Omar will get back hard on Marlo, he’s just getting to damn cocky for my taste. I’m sure he will… And while he’s at it, please do the Greeks also, some creepy people.
McNulty and Freamon are really working the case, it’s kind of creepy seeing them messing around at the crime scene. Well, it’s for the greater good at least. I wonder if Bunk will ever come around.
Also in the news room (haven’t really gotten into this so much yet), things are at the boiling point. Dreams of the Washingon Post got squashed and some of the senior staff appeared as even bigger asses as before (if even possible!)
And on the note on McNulty, man he’s one screwed up anti-hero. Looks like his family life is about to go down the drain, but who’s surprised? Not me… Let McNulty be McNulty
In city hall things are also about to reach boiling point, Carcetti struggling with the numbers and Rhonda making (not so anymore) mighty men sweat. Sheeeeeit! And oh, Burrell made a decision…
Think this was one of the strongest episodes of the Season so far. What do you think?
Things are truly starting to heat up on the wire season 5.
Stop reading if you haven’t seen episode 3 yet.
A few favourite moments from the episode:
McNulty trying to get an agents attention talking about ‘the red ribbon’ – great because it was so over the top comedial, but still works for the Wire as we all know that there really are people that thick
Prop Joe commenting how hard it is going to be to civilize Marlo (who doesn’t really grasp the concept of having money on the bank, where you can’t see or touch it).
’Omar is coming” I’m pretty sure he will make quite an impression in Baltimore soon. RIP Butchie.
The Greeks are back in action
What’s your favourite moments from the wire episode 3?
Today the Wire Season 5 will air on HBO, and we’ll celebrate with a few golden clips.
The Wire Season 5 DVD boxes will apparently have some unique content on them, prequel material where you’ll see the gangsters growing up. It’s awesome to see how Omar only played people in the game from day one, and prop joe beeing a slick business man even as a kid.
Another great prequel moment is when McNulty met Bunk. Check it out!

While I’m eagerly awaiting the next and final season 5 of the Wire, I don’t really want to know beforehand about any plot twists. But on the other hand, it’s still very tempting to read all the gossip floating around the web on this topic. So, if you don’t want to risk getting the future plot spoiled, you might wanna stop reading here…
According to Japadamus, below are the main plot events for the Wire season 5:
So, from the comments in my previous post and surfing around the great old web, I’ve learnt that a lot of people really like the characters Chris and Snoop. It sort of shocked me as they are in my opinion just bad people. Their fun comments would have made them more appealing in a standard Hollywood production like Bad Boys, or whatever, but in a show such as the Wire they still come out like real fuck-ups that should be jailed for life. Any how, It made me think about who’s the most popular character in the wire.
- McNulty, beacuse he’s an original hero with a lot of shit on his hands but still has a good heart.
- Bunk, because he’s a great police (you have to pronounce that Baltimore style), and likes another shot straight after throwing up
- Bubbles, living the hard life with great style and being a true entrepreneur
- Bodie, one cool dude that didn’t bend for no one
- Omar, although a murderous soul he does have a code to only kill people in the game…
- Stringer, thought he was a really cool dude in the first two seasons, wanting to take the game to a whole new level of organisation – profit over honor and such.. Although I think he lost it at the end
- Kima, although liked her better in the first 3 seasons
And for the bottom scrap, there’s Chris and Snoop. Just check out this video collage.
