On HBO’s The Wire, actor Michael K. Williams plays Omar Little, a stick-up guy who robs only drug dealers. Omar has a scar running down his face. That’s not a prosthetic scar; it’s real. Williams tells Terry Gross the story behind his scar â and lots of other stories about himself and Omar.

THE ART OF THE WIRE: A DISCUSSION WITH CAST AND CREATORS. Check it out below as ROBERT CHEW enacts what PROPOSITION JOE would think of Barack Obama, and JAMIE HECTOR explains the back-story he created for MARLO STANFIELD, and writer GEORGE PELECANOS admits they could’ve done a better job portraying women characters, and FRAN BOYD — the inspiration for David Simon’s The Corner — explains love and redemption, and POOT … well, TRAY CHANEY will tell you that Poot is just Poot.
Here it is, boys and girls, the hilarious interview that Gene Simmons wouldn’t allow NPR to release as an archive like they normally do with Fresh Air, either because he couldn’t figure out how to make any money off it, or because it makes him sound like a complete ass. My guess is the former.
Gene does his best to school the boring, repressed NPR listener on his fascinating philosophy of life, apparently a subtle blend of Ayn Rand and Ron Jeremy. Terry does her best not to get flustered, while conducting some kind of meaningful interview. She does a pretty good job, in my opinion. Hey, she’s Terry Gross.
