The Sideshow

‘The Wire: The Musical’ (VIDEO)

HBO's "The Wire" is one of the most critically acclaimed shows in television history. But that doesn't mean it's former cast members are above poking a little fun at their former roles.

In this new video from Funny or Die, "The Wire: The Musical," Michael Kenneth Williams (Omar), Andre Royo (Bubbles), Felicia Pearson (Snoop) and Larry Gilliard Jr. (D'Angelo Barksdale) all show up to perform "family-friendly" musical renditions.

There are even anthropomorphic appearances from some of the show's non-human "characters," including the infamous "burner" cellphones, with lines like, "I'm just a burner, they can't trace me. Use me for drug deals, then replace me."

If you're a die-hard fan of the show, you'll either love or hate being pulled from the story as the actors make light of story lines from the show's dramatic five seasons.

Although this isn't the first time actors from the show have done riffs on their Wire characters. Williams recently appeared on three episodes of this season of NBC's "Community," where he played a hard edged character that was a comedic take on "Omar."

And perhaps most surprising of all, you'll get to see Snoop in a long-flowing, white evening gown, as Pearson declares, " "This is some Cinderella bullsh**."
