Dominic West bats '300' in new flick

The Baltimore Sun

The Wire's Dominic West returns to Baltimore this month for the final season of the HBO drama a bigger star after his new movie, 300, defied studio expectation as the breakout hit of the spring.

The 36-year-old actor, who plays earnest detective Jimmy McNulty on The Wire, successfully shifted gears to portray a slimy politician in the Spartan epic. He'll take questions before tonight's 8 p.m. screening of 300 at the Senator Theatre. Away for the past few weeks in England, he'll watch the completed film for the first time with a Baltimore audience.

A Q&A; session with Dominic West begins about 7:30 tonight at the Senator Theatre, 5904 York Road. Call 410-435-8338 or visit
