Move over, Michael. It's Dukie's turn on the mic.
Tristan Wilds — the actor who played Michael Lee on "The Wire" and who now performs as Mack Wilds — is not the only "Wire" alum to recently pursue a music career.
Jermaine Crawford (the New York City-based actor who played Michael's classmate, Duquan "Dukie" Weems) is now a 21-year-old R&B singer.
Crawford quietly released a five-song effort, "Underdog," last October. (Download it here.) And you can watch his video for the Janet Jackson-inspired single, "Janet," above.
