Aight so I never really got into the HBO Series "The Wire"...I know ..I know...some of you guys are big fans...but on the bright side I'm featuring one of the most facinating characters of the show "Chris Partlow" .since playing this role, he gets mad love from all kind of people, white , black , but particularly from people
" from the streets"....
Ok if like me , you never watched that show, maybe u remenber him in the role of Yinka in the Barbershop series , I see Gbenga is a regular on HBO... He's also since then appeared in the comedy-drama "The Savages"along Phillip Seymour, Laura Linney...pretty strong cast....

Gbenga is not just Hollywood movies, theater was actually his first love, after he got tired of working a 9/5 shift in DC, wondered what was out there, read book decided that he wanted try acting..took classes, and tried out for played in the DC area in various Shakspeare plays......
2day he's a regular cat, who's aware of his success but doesn't let that drive him, he counts among his best friends an HBO alumn Jamie Hector and Felicia Pearson..they actually support each other projects... It would be interesting to see if people who are hard core "The Wire"fans are able to dissociate his character from other future projects he would be involved with... Anywhoo here's a great interview of the brotha:
