Shit Lookalikes: Michael Essien and Chris Partlow from The Wire

Two scary men, but in very different ways
If you don’t watch The Wire, a) you should, absolutely (it’s amazingly good), and b) for the purposes of this post, you might want to know that Partlow (played by Nigerian-American actor Gbenga Akinnagbe) is a hitman for a ruthless drug dealer. Whereas Essien is just a ruthless footballer.

    Sidenote on The Wire, I feel like anyone from the UK would have a tough time following the dialogue. There are heavy Baltimore accents and slang going on, it was hard enough for me to follow certain phrases in the UK Office
