The Wire is one of the most respected series in cable television history, known for its complex characters on both sides of the Baltimore drug game. The Walking Dead is one of the most popular television series in cable television history, known for the fact that it’s a television show about zombies and zombies rule. Fans of both shows expressed a collective “OH SNAP!” last season on The Walking Dead with the appearance of Tyreese played by Chad Coleman who had previously played the ex-con with a heart of gold Dennis “Cutty” Wise on The Wire. Now the word is out that actor Larry Gilliard, Jr. who played The Wire’s ill-fated drug dealer D’Angelo “D” Barksdale is playing Bob Stookey on season 4 of The Walking Dead. That got us thinking of what other Wire characters we’d love to see on The Walking Dead’s cruel new world. Who would rise to the occasion and put down walkers and who would end up zombie meat with the quickness? Here are 10 Characters From The Wire We’d Like To See On The Walking Dead.
