The Prognosis
: Gbenga Akinnagbe, a D.C. native, made his debut playing Christ Partlow on The Wire, and ever since, people have taken notice. Akinnagbe has worked on indie features like The Savages and landed rich, multi-episode appearances on The Good Wife, Nurse Jackie, and, most recently Damages. David Simon's series seems to have been a blessing for him.
