HBO’s The Wire is universally considered to be one of the greatest programs TV has ever seen, with an enormous cast drawn from all over the world. Even after the end of the show, that cast is still a force to be reckoned with. Let’s see what they’re up to now.
10. Idris Elba
London-born actor Idris Elba (Stringer Bell) has had a great career on both sides of the pond, but he’s currently wowing us as the title character on the BBC’s Luther.
9. Michael B. Jordan
After getting his break as the likable young dealer Wallace on The Wire, Michael B. Jordan has built a solid acting career, with a great role in Fruitvale Station and recent casting in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie.
8. Chad Coleman
As Cutty on The Wire, Chad Coleman was one of the show’s more positive figures. His part on The Walking Dead as hardened survivor Tyreese is equally awesome.
