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.
