If you are binge-watching The Wire on HBO Signature this weekend, now digitally remastered, being on Twitter makes the experience even better. Some of the actors and actresses have been live-tweeting during the marathon, reflecting on being part of a classic TV show and revealing things from behind the scenes. If you can’t keep up with both screens, don’t worry. We’ve collected tweets from everybody, from the people who played Bubbles, to Bodie, to Bunk.


Season 1

Bubbles (Andre Royo) was really nervous when he shot his first scene:

Herc (Domenick Lombardozzi) remembers a scene with Bubbles where a real rat crawled over their feet:

One of Bunk’s (Wendell Pierce) favorite moments? Interrogating D’Angelo (Larry Gilliam Jr.):

When it hits you that Day-Day (Donnell Rawlings) is also Ashy Larry:

Bunk recalled that he and Sergeant Landsman (Delaney Williams) had the ladies swooning over them on set. To which the sergeant responds:

Poot (Tray Chaney) revealed that the actor behind D’Angelo taught him a lot:

Lieutenant Daniels (Lance Reddick) chimed in with a salute to his fellow cast members:

Kima (Sonja Sohn) thought the building up to the death of Wallace (Michael B. Jordan) was a work of art:

Bunk revealed that whenever a cast member was killed off, everybody would come to their final scene and bid them farewell:

Bodie (JD Williams) has a pick for most underrated role on the show:

How many E’s does it take to spell the classic line from senator Clay Davis (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.)? He offers a number:

Season 2

Sapper (Brandon Tate) gave props to the actor behind Frank Sobotka (Chris Bauer), and he responded that it’s all about the role:

Bubbles tweeted about director David Simon and the cast not receiving awards:

Ziggy Sobotka (James Ransone) provides a very blunt thought on why people dislike his character:

How much porn did Sergeant Landsman keep in his desk? Think about it in terms of pounds:

One of the film crew members has a photo with Cheese (Method Man):

What about the dorags Bodie would wear? That was the idea of the actor:

Lester Freeman (Clarke Peters) says what up to Poot on Twitter. It’s all love outside of the show:

The actress who played Kima had a hand in the creation of Lester:

A fan posted a photo of the real Bunk, Detective Oscar Requer:

Brother Mouzone (Michael Potts) wishes he could have been with Bunk in a scene:

Sapper reveals what creator David Simon wanted Season 2 to be, in a nutshell:

Season 3

Poot appreciates how Stringer Bell (Idris Elba) looked out for him on the show, and in real life:

Sapper reveals that the demolition of the towers in the opener of season 3 was CGI:

Bodie often comes off as being unintentionally funny, and this is on purpose:

Officer Dozerman (Rick Otto) enjoys how the cast has been going down memory lane again:

Bunk points out that the deacon working with Cutty (Chad Coleman), like many of the cast members, are people from Baltimore:

Bubbles and Herc would help each other rehearse before scenes, until:

Why did Brother Mouzone always have a helper who was not as sharp as him? Simple:

Did anyone notice how many hairstyles prosecutor Rhonda (Deirdre Lovejoy) had? Kima did:

Real drug dealers started to take tips from the show for their hustle, says Bunk:

Some of the scenes and dialogue would pay homage to old western films. Here’s one example from Sapper:

Marlo (Jamie Hector) pays respects to the late actor behind Proposition Joe (Robert Chew):
