The Wire is widely regarded as one of the greatest shows of all time, and one of its key successes is its incredible ensemble cast. With hundreds of speaking parts over five years, creators David Simon and Ed Burns painted a living portrait of the modern American city. Many of the actors responsible for our favorite performances on the show have gone on to great things, while others have had less luck.

Dominic West, known for his role as Jimmy McNulty, has had a successful career in both movies and TV since the show ended.

Idris Elba, who played Stringer Bell, is one of the show's biggest success stories, with roles in major films and his own passion projects. Frankie Faison, who portrayed Commissioner Ervin Burrell, has found success on TV, particularly in the series Banshee.

Other actors, such as Larry Gilliard Jr, Wood Harris, and Michael B Jordan, have had varied careers since their time on The Wire. Each one has found success in their own way, whether it's through indie films, major blockbusters, or critically acclaimed TV shows.

Felicia Pearson, who played Snoop on the show, is a unique case. She has not acted much since The Wire, but she became an iconic figure in the rap world and appeared in music videos for various artists.
