One of the best shows ever borrows from the best show ever

I was pleased to see Larry Gilliard, Jr., who played D'Angelo Barksdale on "The Wire," on this week's episode of "Friday Night Lights."  There he joins FNL regular Michael B. Jordan, who played Wallace in season 1 of "The Wire."  Thanks to Eric for the heads up.

This sort of reminds me when Fox shows like "The Heights" and "Models Inc" died and you'd see the main actors turning up on more reliable shows like BH9 and "Melrose Place."  But it's nice to see this dynamic with shows that are, you know, good.
