The Prognosis: A few projects aside, Cllarke Peters' career since The Wire has provided fans of Lester Freamon with moments of real brilliance. It comes as no surprise that David Simon is responsible. Say what you will about some of the didactic or dull storylines on Treme, Peters performance as Albert Lambreaux is astonishing, more than enough reason to watch the most human, empathetic show in recent TV. The stubborn leader of a Mardi Gras Indian tribe, Lambreaux embodied the scuffed grace of New Orleans. His first appearance in his Indian suit made for just as indelible scene as anything The Wire produced.
