Fran Boyd married Donnie Andrews in 2007. Andrews was the basis for Omar in The Wire, and David Simon introduced the two of them. Subsequently, Simon was the best man at the wedding, and it was attended by many of the stars of The Wire. A couple of articles in the New York Times tell the couple's story. See more »
"The Corner" was the closest, truest, most honest miniseries I've ever seen that delt with the streets, drugs, and dysfunctional families. Being a recovering drug addict, I never ever seen a film that actually put me back onto the streets, the drugs, and the dysfunction of life. The actors were superb. Their dialogue, gestures, even the look in their eyes, couldn't be more real. I can't compare it to any movies that I've ever seen. I saw what I used to be in this film and they reminded me that I don't want to ever go back. So real, too real, it is real. Thanks Mr. Dutton.
