The Wire's Cast Celebrates a New CD! Plus: A Hero in the Midst?
Fans of the fiery final season of The Wire (Sunday at 9 pm/ET on HBO) know that drug kingpin Marlo Stanfield (Jamie Hector) is an ice-cold killer who, after one particularly dastardly murder two weeks ago, is hiding out from revenge-seeking stickup artist Omar (Michael K. Williams). Recently, though, Marlo's portrayer, Jamie Hector, did surface... for a signing of the new Wire soundtrack at the HBO store in Midtown Manhattan. At the signing, Hector told TVGuide.com that he'll be moving from street-corner killing to supernatural evil-doing — as the new "villain" on Heroes. (NBC reps, however, wouldn't confirm this casting news.) But the soft-spoken actor wouldn't reveal much about himself or his new character's superpower. "It's not good," he says simply. Sounds like his character on The Wire.
