List of non-actors on The Wire?
July 2, 2008 8:16 PM Subscribe
Any fan of The Wire
knows that the show features a lot of characters played by 'non-actors.' For example, ex-convict Snoop plays Snoop, Mello is played by the real Jay Landsman, the former mayor of Baltimore (Kurt Schmoke) popped up as a health commissioner during the Hamsterdam crisis, etc. Is there a list of every such 'non-actor' on The Wire
? I did google, but didn't use the right terms, or somesuch.
