Enjoy the Omar-Approved 'The Wire: The Musical'

Funny or Die has reunited a slew of cast members from “The Wire,” including Michael K. Williams (Omar), Andre Royo (Bubbles), Felicia Pearson (Snoop), and Larry Gilliard Jr. (D’Angelo Barksdale), to star in “The Wire: The Musical,” which allows us to “experience America’s failing drug war through the magic of song!” Just the way David Simon intended. I think my favorite thing about it is Omar’s Tom Waits-after-a-particularly-rough-night singing voice, or maybe Omar dancing, or maybe family-friendly fake McNulty saying, “What the frick did I do?” or maybe D’Angelo explaining that chess is a metaphor for drug deals, or maybe Snoop’s white dress, or maybe “Faizon Love as Stringer Bell.” Yeah, it’s definitely “Faizon Love as Stringer Bell.”
