xpost chewshabadoo - HBO shortfilm “Typecast” - Michael K Williams as himself, and in character as Omar, Chalky & Montrose in conversation together talking about the question of typecasting & how/if it applies to him as an actor

wow, that video hits hard. what a great actor, what a loss.

David Simon essay on MKW in the New York Times

I dunno, that felt a bit off to me somehow, can't put my finger on why.

assert (matttkkkk), Sunday, 12 September 2021 22:18 (two years ago) link

it felt somewhat guarded, and if that is whats going on I am ok with that.

like to me gnot knowing dick about him) this death is deeply personal and even though he is a writer by trade he’s maybe not willing to mine his own grief for us just yet (or ever)

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Sunday, 12 September 2021 23:20 (two years ago) link

maybe it felt a bit patronising? like isn't it great that a mere actor became concerned with the overall themes of the show?

assert (matttkkkk), Monday, 13 September 2021 00:55 (two years ago) link

Here's a public link for that (m4a)

Wow, afaict it's rare that there's ever any follow-up on these things:

do you think the hand-to-hands and controlled buys are going to get them up past the street level?

sarahell, Thursday, 3 February 2022 18:35 (one year ago) link

David Simon does not approve

Please don’t @ me on this. I do not think Mike is honored or properly remembered by more incarceration in his name. Knowing him and his thoughts, I think he would be appalled at this. End the goddam drug war. https://t.co/IYZTSzgHEa

I was going to post basically the same thing. One of the arrested is 70 years old

rob, Thursday, 3 February 2022 18:55 (one year ago) link

wonder who their lawyer is

sarahell, Thursday, 3 February 2022 19:03 (one year ago) link

just makes a sad thing even sadder
arresting the dealers is just surface level bullshit, meanwhile fentanyl is basically a standard compnent in street heroin all over the country & no one w the power to do anything abt it seems to give a fuck

Holy shit, Delaney Williams as Kevin Davis?

Other former Wire cast members include Jamie Hector, Tray Chaney, and Domenick Lombardozzi.

peace, man, Wednesday, 23 March 2022 17:03 (one year ago) link

Jon Bernthal + Jamie Hector ? I am sold.

sarahell, Wednesday, 23 March 2022 17:07 (one year ago) link

honestly -- in retrospect, Jon Bernthal would have been a really good McNulty

sarahell, Wednesday, 23 March 2022 17:08 (one year ago) link

Oh wow, this is a side note, but I went over the Wire subreddit to check for more information on this show. Instead found out that Benjamin Busch, the actor who played Colicchio (the asshole cop with the goatee), has been over in Ukraine giving some kind of combat instruction to Ukrainian volunteers.


peace, man, Wednesday, 23 March 2022 17:15 (one year ago) link

looking forward to the new show, not the new war

i cannot help if you made yourself not funny (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 23 March 2022 17:57 (one year ago) link

cannot wait for new show, looks so good

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 23 March 2022 18:39 (one year ago) link

Looks like a bit of penance from Simon for his overly-generous treatment of the Baltimore police.

DJI, Wednesday, 23 March 2022 18:43 (one year ago) link

and we get josh charles too, baltimore’s own :D

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 23 March 2022 18:43 (one year ago) link

Love Jon Bernthal's repugnant bad guy face, "dough on the table" policing is kinda ripe for this exploration. Stoked

Swanswans, Thursday, 24 March 2022 16:26 (one year ago) link

yeah bernthal is perfect for this

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 24 March 2022 18:26 (one year ago) link

Am I crazy or wasn’t he playing this character on The Shield?

DJI, Thursday, 24 March 2022 18:49 (one year ago) link

Haven't all of his major roles been variations on a dirtbag?

henry s, Thursday, 24 March 2022 19:05 (one year ago) link

Bernthal was not in The Shield

rob, Thursday, 24 March 2022 19:08 (one year ago) link

I was thinking of Walton Goggins!

DJI, Thursday, 24 March 2022 19:18 (one year ago) link

I get Bernthal and Thomas Jane confused (not just because the we’re both the Punisher)

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 24 March 2022 19:36 (one year ago) link

Oops typo. I am not in fact the Punisher

Chuck_Tatum, Thursday, 24 March 2022 19:37 (one year ago) link

there's a dedicated thread for these fascinating revelations :)

rob, Thursday, 24 March 2022 19:44 (one year ago) link

i am a fan of Bernthal, Thomas Jane and Walton Goggins ... my first Bernthal experience was as Shane in Walking Dead, kinda dirtbag, kinda hot tbh

sarahell, Friday, 25 March 2022 16:03 (one year ago) link

could definitely see him hooking up with diner waitresses after getting drunk and crashing his car

sarahell, Friday, 25 March 2022 16:04 (one year ago) link

I waited til I finished my full series The Wire rewatch until I watched this trailer!
Some real 'Ryan on Line of Duty' feels seeing Marlo there.

And Herc? Donut? Jay? Dukie?
Should be good.

kinder, Monday, 28 March 2022 22:58 (one year ago) link

four weeks pass...

should we start a new thread for the new show - it’s so good

terminators of endearment (VegemiteGrrl), Wednesday, 27 April 2022 04:26 (one year ago) link

Yeah, different thread makes to me.

Carnegie Felon (Leee), Wednesday, 27 April 2022 18:35 (one year ago) link

Yeah, I think it's a good idea. Great first episode.

seven months pass...

Rewatching first four seasons, up to 3 now. Still enjoying but man, that scene where they mistake Cheese killing his dog with killing his "dawg" is some lame sitcom shit compared to the rest of the ep

Fash Gordon (Neanderthal), Tuesday, 13 December 2022 02:17 (nine months ago) link

LESTER: We've been listening to him all night. Something about looking for a "free show."

BUNK: Fuuucck, ain't nothing free out there. We're getting set up!

pplains, Tuesday, 13 December 2022 02:27 (nine months ago) link

Season 1 had plenty of lame sit-com shit, that scene where they’re trying to get that table through the doorway, the cop trying to figure out how to injure himself so he can get out of work, sub-Office Space level shenanigans.

henry s, Tuesday, 13 December 2022 04:36 (nine months ago) link

god, Avon was so bad at running shit. not that Stringer didn't fuck up on his own, but talk about having literally all the wrong priorities.

Fash Gordon (Neanderthal), Thursday, 15 December 2022 03:32 (nine months ago) link

does it make you feel better about your "stupid annoying co-workers" Neando?

sarahell, Thursday, 15 December 2022 16:07 (nine months ago) link

yeah at least mine won't get me killed

Fash Gordon (Neanderthal), Thursday, 15 December 2022 16:08 (nine months ago) link

three months pass...

Fuck. Heartbroken.
