Trivia

At the end of Dead Soldiers, Councilman Thomas 'Tommy' Carcetti is seen having an extra marital affair at a political fund raiser. The character Tommy Carcetti bears a strong resemblance to former Baltimore Mayor/City Councilman and Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley. This scene caused quite a kerfuffle and no doubt will continue to be a source of controversy as O'Malley runs for the presidency in 2016. See more »

Goofs
