Brian Anthony Wilson, Actor On HBO’s The Wire

Local actor Brian Anthony Wilson is probably best known as Detective Vernon Holley on the award-winning HBO series The Wire. But he frequently stars in Philadelphia theater productions, and is known to attend as many local shows as he can in support of the community.

See him in person, in a different capacity, when he sings in “Five-Minute Follies Presents the Great American Songbook,” Saturday, April 7 at The Rotunda.

Check out the video above to see Brian at the Philadelphia Acting Studio where we filmed him and he teaches acting classes, and learn what he wishes more people knew about in Philadelphia.

How cool that he’s from Philly! I had no idea, and I watched all 5 seasons of The Wire twice.
