It’s The Wire Musical You Didn’t
Realize You’ve Always Wanted
In what may be the most inspired Funny or Die video to date, cast members from the The Wire, indisputably one of the best television series of all time, reunite for a musical send-up of the acclaimed HBO drama. For the first since 2008, we see Michael Kenneth Williams as Omar Little — “Omar’s comin’! Omar’s comin’!” — Sonja Sohn as Kima Greggs, Larry Gilliard Jr. as D’Angelo Barksdale Jr., Andre Royo as Bubbles and Felicia Pearson as a dress-wearing Snoop (“Man, this is some Cinderella bullshit, man”).
Undoubtedly, there’s a Broadway producer desperately trying to get in touch with David Simon to make The Wire: The Musical a reality. Good luck with that.
