Michael B. Jordan played Wallace on The Wire. He was a pit boy until his family moved to Dillon, TX where he would go on to have a successful High School Football career.
Wood Harris played Avon Barksdale on The Wire. Avon is the dominant drug dealer of Baltimore’s West Side where he takes care of the towers and the pit. His second in command is Stringer Bell, who took over for Gerry Bertier when he was paralyzed in a car accident and could no longer provide the muscle needed to keep respect on the street.
UPDATE: I accidentally had a typo in the subject. It said ‘Word Harris’ instead of ‘Wood Harris.’ I don’t blame myself because either is an absurd name for a human being.
Benicio Del Toro had a pretty nice steesh in the movie Savages. He plays a ruthless member of a Mexican drug cartel who has no problem kicking around a severed head like a soccer ball. While Del Toro is good in this role, it’s difficult not to think of the horrible movie The Wolfman whenever I see him.
Aaron Paul plays Jesse Pinkman on Breaking Bad. He’s always got a creeperstache going on – perfect for a character that makes meth with his old high school teacher.
Aaron Paul is a pretty good actor. I hated him for most of the first season of Breaking Bad, but his character has grown so much over the last 4 years. I know if he read this he’d be so happy. After all, he got into acting to make sure I liked him.
I thought I had too much time on my hands, but here’s a .gif that someone made from last night’s Breaking Bad where Jesse helps himself to a tortilla:
Edmund Lyndeck was an English professor before he decided that 30 hour work weeks and summers off was not his ideal job, and so he became an actor. You might recognize him from his the 2000 Breckin Meyer vehicle Road Trip, where he played the pot smoking grandpa who wasn’t afraid to show off his boner.
He made his movie debut the year before in Adam Sandler’s Big Daddy, where he played an old drunk man. It never came up whether or not he was willing to show off his boner, but we’ll assume he was ok with it.

If you couldn’t tell, I watched Boogie Nights last night…. for the first time. I suppose it’s no surprise that a movie about the pornography industry in the 1970s and 80s would be stupid with mustaches.
Here is Alfred Molina who had a small but terrific role in Boogie Nights. Now whenever I picture a drug dealer’s house it will always have an Asian man lighting off firecrackers one at a time.
