The Cast of "The Deuce"

Recommended Posts


I don't see a "cast in other roles" thread, so hopefully this is the right place to talk about the various familiar faces on the Deuce.

The Wire alums are probably the most prominent. I love that we've  got D'Angelo, Frank Sobotka, Maurice Levy, and Chris Partlow as a cop, brothel manager, police chief and pimp, respectively. Any other Wire actors I missed? (I've heard people reference various actors from Show Me A Hero as well - I need to add that to my queue.)

Wanted to post this clip about Gbenga Akinnagbe from Bucknell University's alumni page on its website and didn't know where else to post it ... I adore him and am so glad to see the spotlight he's getting in this story arc ... he went to high school basically right down the street from us.

ETA: To @sweetcookieface, to add to your list: Anwan Glover (Slim Charles/Leon) and, though it was (so far) a one-and-done, Clarke Peters (Lester Freamon/Ace, the retired pimp in the S1 finale!) ... I know there are more I'm forgetting but those two are key!

I met Gbenga at Afropunk 2016! Really nice guy. He had a furniture company where he would refinish pieces in African fabrics. I didn’t even recognize him from The Wire.
