The Prognosis: We're rooting for Tristan Wilds. Playing Michael, the character who matures to walk the path of Omar, Wilds made the arc believable, no small feat. When The Wire wrapped, he moved to the CW's reboot of teeny-bopper drama 90210, and that's cool; it makes clear another facet of his abilities. And you can't blame him starring in Red Tails, a movie that, unfortunately, was as bad as we feared it would be. Let's just hope it won't be his last shot at a blockbuster.
