Look Alike Special: The Wire

It's all over for you die hard Wire fans (but I'm sure the full series DVD set will be off the chain). I caught on to this show at the very end and I must say, just about every cast member looks like someone already famous. If I had the time I'd compare everyone, but I ain't tryna do all that. The few listed should have you rollin'.

City Editor Augustus Haynes (Clark Johnson) lookin' like Irv Gotti's daddy.

UM Professor David Parenti (Dan Deluca) and N'Sync member Chris Kirkpatrick.

My sexy favorite Dominic West (aka Officer James "Jimmy" McNulty) and that Dirty Harry. They're both English blokes.

John Doman (aka Deptuy Commissioner for Operations William A Rawls) and NYPD Blue alum Dennis Frantz. Throw in a little Robert De Niro and you've got a twin.

Felicia "Snoop" Pearson and Whitley, I mean, Jasmine Guy.
It's a stretch, but I see it.

Lookin' like Disney big-kid Raven-Symone...and a lick of Coolio.

Michael Kostroff (aka Lawyer dude Maurice "Maury" Levy) and Jon Lovitz.

Paul Ben Victor (aka Spiros "Vondas" Vondoloulos) lookin' like Simon Rex's big bro.

This is by far the funniest comparison to me (well...check the last one and you tell me). Put that assistant principal (Tootsie Duval) in a pic with Linda Hunt and Jonathan Lipnicki (kid from "Jerry Maguire" and "Stuart Little") and you'd swear you were looking at her mom and kid. Interesting looking family for sure.

Jennifer Carcetti, played by Megan Anderson, looking like a Joan Cusack/Lindsay Lohan combo. What the hell is she staring at? Weird.

Little homie Jemaine Crawford (aka Duquan "Dukie" Weems) and Malik Yoba. Both have that intersting smile thing going on.


Lookin' like ousted Grey's Anatomy actor Isaiah Washington. Ugh.

Cornball teacher Roland "Prez" Pryzbylewski (Jim True-Frost) and Daniel Radcliffe. Yeah...

Detective Shakima "Kima" Greggs (Sonja Sohn) = Angela bassett and Monica on an angry day (i.e. Monday-Sunday).

Sergeant Jay Landsman (Delaney Williams) and John Goodman. Yeah...

Horseface (Charley Scalies) and lol...lmao...hee hee...Jabba the Hutt. Yo, I'm on the floor rolling. Seriously, this is pure hilarity.
