Although I reckon either Daniels could take him in a fight.
Seeing him topless is really intimidating.
We all know Stringer is cooler than Avon though.
Strings is so dreamy, I love his brooding presence, the way he shakes his head when he's thinking, the way he holds his hands behind his back, his macroeconomics classes, aahhh.
(I've only seen upto the 2nd episode of the 2nd season so please no spoilers)
...I was pretty shocked when I found out the guy who played Stringer is English.
Aparently when he does his DJing in America he Idris Elba has to use his Bodymore accent as people refuse to accept that he is english.
amazing! am i gonna be disappointed by the other series or do they live upto expectation?
Stringer Bell forever!
Daniels is also admittedly ripped.
Spiros Vondas anyone?
whos from baltimore maintains Jimmy has the best Bmore accent.
Also never ever listen to Stringer Bells hip-hop project, you'll lose all respect for the man.
All good choices, but...
Lester Freamon for the win.
He was in the Army, yo.
love Freamon too, actually. Oh, and Cutty. And Dookie in season 4 too, though hardly anyone else seems to have seen that over here... oh my God how many great characters can one show have?
Ziggy in season 2 actually, and Nick too actually... there's so much pain in them, I love those characters.
Its just daunting how classic they all are, and obviously how unrelentingly cool Bell/Daniels/Vondas/Freamon/Omar are, as well. Is there even one bad character in The Wire? Herc possibly... that's it.
big up D'Angelo Barksdale, while I'm at it.
big up D'Angelo.
Herc's awesome! Shut up! Him and Carver should have their own show. They could call it Bad Cops.
As for Ziggy, I swear to god, if I knew this guy in real life, he'd be in the ground by now. The only dilemma would be choosing whether to kick or choke him to death. God bless 'im...
P.S. Anyone else started whistling "A Hunting We Will Go" at random times since they started watching this? Maybe I'm just impressionable...
As it's too Carcetticentric and not nearly enough Jimmy. But it still shits all over most TV.
I knew Dominic West was English. Carcetti? English and in Queer As Folk? Lordy.
See, as I'd probably cheerfully go gay for Stringer Bell's speaking voice, I'd like to think his hip hop would be astonishing. If it's as described, I'll do all I can to avoid hearing it and leave me with my own disturbed conclusions.
And surely Bunk deserves a vote for coolest character?
As for the Bunk... I'd show him some love.
1. Drunkenly setting fire to his clother 'they smell of pussy'
2. Dancing next to the care while him and Jimmy drink.
3. Coming into work in his Lacrosse sweats.
4. Discussing fucking Jimmy in the arse.
5. That really intense conversation with Omar.
Number 4 is one of the most distressingly hilarious scenes I've ever seen.
You forgot the "fuck... motherfuck..." scene.
I'm also a fan of where he just stares out Frank Sebutka in the bar with a cigar in his mouth. You can't act that cool.
Omar > all of them.
I have only seen season one, but my god, it is staggeringly good tv.
love stringer so much. he makes me so happy. and bodie. i love him too.
mcnulty was born in sheffield
McNulty went to ETON?!
You're blowing my skull here!!
and stringer was in family affairs
Although best duo are Brother Mouzone and Lemar.
I think Daniels at the end of series 1, may have been the coolest character ever.
I can't think of too many weak characters, but Ziggy does annoy me. Can't wait until march for season 4.
especially when he was trying to go straight.
i love him
that the best moment of the The Wire is when Daniels is watching a dog showjumping contest on TV. It was in series two. When I saw it I actually exploded.
The expression of intensity on his face is pretty priceless.
We do all know that season five - apparently themed around the media - will be the last, right?
