Glendening, Schmoke to do 'Homicide' bits


In an article in yesterday's editions about Gov. Parris N. Glendening's appearance in "Homicide: Life on the Street," a sentence about the governor was inadvertently edited into a quote and attributed, incorrectly, to Raymond C. Feldmann, a gubernatorial spokesman.

The Sun regrets the error.

Gov. Parris N. Glendening and Baltimore Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke will do today what politicians seem to do best -- act.

Glendening and Schmoke will be on the Fells Point set of "Homicide: Life on the Street" to film the television show's fifth-season finale, which will air May 16. Filming is set for noon to 2 p.m.

Both men will portray themselves and speak once on camera -- each delivering two lines -- in one of the last scenes of the episode, said Holly Unterberger, "Homicide's" script coordinator.

No details of the plot were released, but Unterberger said both men will be "part of a ceremony" on the show.

A Glendening spokesman said the governor has been rehearsing his lines between budget talks and the other business.

"The governor's obviously excited," said Raymond C. Feldmann, the spokesman, adding: "Who else could do justice to that charismatic personality?"

"Homicide" is based on a nonfiction book about the Baltimore police department's homicide squad by former Sun reporter David Simon, who is now a writer and producer for the show.
