It’s unfortunate that the first time we’ve heard from “Slim Charles” in a bit had to be when he was stabbed in a Washington nightclub, but with a cast as large as the one The Wire had, it’s also inevitable. Not EVERYONE can be on The Walking Dead, after all. Anyway, you already know what many of the actors and actresses on the HBO series are up to (Michael K. Williams, Boardwalk Empire; Chris Bauer, True Blood; Idris Elba, your dreams, etc.), but let’s check in with the talent behind 15 supporting, though essential characters. Links to their Twitter accounts are provided, when applicable.

Bodie Broadus (J.D. Williams)

Made four appearances on The Good Wife over a four-year span as Dexter Roja. Also on The Following and he’s been in a bunch of indie films.

Brother Mouzone (Michael Potts)

Bubbles (Andre Royo)

Wrote a memoir Grace After Midnight about her childhood. She was also arrested a couple of years ago, but seems to have turned things around: she’s working with Spike Lee and possibly BET.

In the past two years, Wisdom has added roles in The Dark Knight Rises (as an army captain), Comedy Bang! Bang!, Nashville, and Chicago P.D. to his IMDb. Not bad for a Bunny.
