Andre Royo Talks Life After Bubbles + Updates On The Cast Of The Wire

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Actor Andre Royo catches up with Angie Martinez and the HOT97 crew in Las Vegas where they chat about life since The Wire and what a few of his former cast members have been up to since the critically-acclaimed HBO series wrapped in 2008. Royo dishes a little about his latest role in The Spectacular Now, directed by James Ponsoldt. He also talks about the continued recognition he receives for his role as Bubbles on The Wire. Royo expresses a great deal of pride in Tristan "Mack" Wilds and Michael B. Jordan - both of whom have been making their presence felt; Mack Wilds is riding the wave of his debut LP while Jordan continues to receive praise for his portrayal of Oscar Grant in Fruitvale Station. Deviating from the acting discussion, Andre and Angie switch to a more Vegas appropriate topic as he details his plans to bet on an upcoming fight. Check the track below to listen to the full interview. Scroll down to watch the trailer for The Spectacular Now.
