The Walking Dead's Chad Coleman Screamed at Some NYC Subway Riders

2 May 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chad Coleman, known for his roles in The Wire and, more recently, The Walking Dead, lost his shit on a New York City subway this week, and the whole thing was captured on video. (It happens to the best of us, Chad.) TMZ spoke with Coleman, who clarified that a man and woman on the train were trying to ascertain whether they knew Coleman, and the man said something along the lines of, "No, we don’t know that n*****." Coleman was  upset. He explained that his subsequent shouting about "humanitarians" and "the fucking truth" stemmed from the problems in Baltimore. It's not clear if it would have been more effective of him to just go along with the rest of his Wire co-stars and post about it on social media. »

Why ‘The Wire’ Should Be Must-See TV for Baltimore Pundits

30 April 2015 7:17 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Wire” is currently available via HBO’s demand platforms, but as a public service, the pay channel should repeat the acclaimed drama before the city of Baltimore fades from the headlines. Indeed, one would hope some of the politicians and pundits weighing in on the rioting there would take a long, sober look.

Yes, it’s a fictional series. But having worked as a crime reporter at the Baltimore Sun, the show’s creator David Simon clearly recognized the intractable problems that plague the city, layering them upon each other from season to season and building toward one inexorable conclusion: Despite the inevitable posturing and pronouncements, nothing was going to get done.

The program began with the drug dealers and cops, two warring tribes, each caught up in its own intramural squabbles and bureaucracy. Subsequent seasons then proceeded to encompass struggling blue-collar workers and lost jobs; the corruption and »
