Most of the actors from "The Wire" have gone on to have great careers in the acting world!  But wouldn't it be more fun to imagine what the CHARACTERS did after their time on The Wire (or heck, even before The Wire if they bite the bullet on the show)?  Create some form of media (GIF, image, etc...) that shows an actor from The Wire in another role (either before or after) but as a continuation of their character in The Wire.

Where is he now?? Pablo Schreiber is Everywhere!!

When Pablo Schreiber showed up as Nick Sobotka in the first episode of season 2 of The Wire, I knew I had seen him before. A quick Google of his name confirmed that I was not imagining things.
