Camille O'Sullivan and Aidan Gillen
On his role as Carcetti in _The Wire (2002)_: We follow Carcetti`s journey as a minor player in city politics to a major contender in a mayoral election. He was a young guy who was considered an upstart, who saw an opportunity to do something, maybe effect some change. We see him open up and develop a conscience. I hope he`s not just coming across as smarm. I`d say he`s flawed, but driven.
  • Brown haired Irish actor who got his big break in the controversial, highly acclaimed TV series "Queer as Folk" (1999).
  • Was nominated for Broadway's 2004 Tony Award as Best Actor (Featured Role - Play) for a revival of Harold Pinter's "The Caretaker."
