He was a Black actor who played Omar on the show “The Wire” that came on HBO. He took his parts seriously. He was a stuck-up boy in real life, that’s why they gave him the part. He said he did one line and got the part. He also played Tupac’s little brother in the movie “Bullet” He played in seven movies and was nominated for three Emmys. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York. I watched the BET Awards earlier this year and he was there honoring DMX. He was 54 years old when he passed away on Sept. 5. In 1977 he had three kids and a wife and two dogs. He also played college basketball for UMass for one year and was a great gospel singer. So, Rest in Peace to one of my favorite actors.
