Kevin Hart
What if 'The Wire' were set in Brooklyn?

What if "The Wire" had been set in increasingly gentrified Brooklyn? "Saturday Night Live" examined such a cross-cultural mutation on Saturday's show, with a short film starring Kenan Thompson, Jay Pharoah and host Kevin Hart as three corner boys bragging about their exploits -- with a deliciously upscale, gentrified twist. Artisanal mayonnaise and dog-walking never sounded so street. Check out the film here. Could this be where Baltimore's headed?
