Dominic West played Fred West, accent was incredible
I could even hear Idris wasn't right.Have to say that, as an American, it was painful to hear Elba try to do his accent. Comical at times.
Complete opposite with Dominic West, could have sworn he was Baltimore born and bred.
Could be... he was great in that role but terrible in auditions, who knows? Don't think naive idiot describes that character, there was a lot more to him than thatbodie was one of those people who are good at playing a naive idiot which is not as saleable as a stringer bell who is good at playing a hunky charismatic alpha male maybe?
I feel like they maybe had that on the table as an idea but wanted to put him through the whole redemption storyline after he accidentally kills his new protégé.Did anyone else wish Bubbles would have just died (fictionally)? He iv’d endlessly and somehow made it through hiv, his mate fucking up, buying gear with fake money, becoming a free trader, getting ripped off/head filled in
Last series halfway through could’ve been the ideal time just to rupture any flow. More stark, more realistic, “it’s the hope that kills you“ etc
Not being misanthropic
The reason I started rewatching the wire was cos I started watching Oz from the beginning. And bodie is in that!Back to The Wire, the other one who shoulda gone on to big things was Bodie... also Kimya, Freamon... but Bodie was particularly watchable.
