'The Wire' Creator Calls Funny or Die's Musical Version of His Show 'Hilarious'


'The Wire: The Musical' features some original cast members namely Michael Kenneth Williams and Sonja Sohn singing their lines in the scenes that recreate memorable moments from the HBO series.

"The Wire" has received a musical treatment in a new Funny or Die video. Brought to the stage, the HBO series is revived with several original cast members, including Michael Kenneth Williams, Sonja Sohn, Larry Gilliard Jr., Andrew Royo and Felicia Pearson, reprising their roles in the clip.

Dubbed a family-friendly show, "The Wire: The Musical" turns some dark scenes on the series into ticklish acts as the characters sing their lines and dance while holding gun. One of the memorable moments recreated in the video is the scene which features Gilliard Jr.'s D'Angelo Barksdale teaching Wallace and Bodie about the similarities between chess and drug deals.

It additionally presents Pearson's Snoop as she's never been seen before. Meanwhile, the narration claims viewers can now "experience The Wire's realistic portrayal of America's decaying inner cities through the magic of song" with the fake play.

David Simon, the creator of the award-winning show, has given his approval to the parody. "I woke up this morning to an email from Michael K. Williams, with this video linked Hilarious. Just great," he wrote on his website before adding, "Felicia's turn alone is worth the time. Ya hair look good, Snoop."
