Hobo Radio 326 – Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

 Bob from The Walking Dead and D’Angelo Barksdale from The Wire may not seem that similar on paper, but both characters have a vulnerability and a tragic quality that gets you instantly invested in them, even as you fear for the worst. That’s because they are both played by the charming and talented Lawrence Gilliard, Jr.

Gilliard joins Joel Murphy and Lars of HoboTrashcan.com to discuss acting, producing his own shows and his newfound passion, improv.

What was it like for the accomplished actor to take an Intro to Improv class? How does it feel to see The Wire finally get the recognition it always deserved? Will Gilliard ever get to finish his sandwich? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks

Interstitial – “The Ring” and “Buterfly Lament” by Peacock Ball

End – “Re: Your Brains” by Jonathan Coulton
