Clifton Collins Jr. & Wendell Pierce Also JoinFor Michael Chiklis, a leap to the big screen has been been curiously out of the reach. The star of "The Commish" and more recently "The Shield" memorably played The Thing in the "Fantastic Four" films but otherwise, has not made much of an impression in feature films, but it looks like he's going to get his shot.

Patrick Fugit Joins Him In 'B.B. King And I'We suspect we've said this before, but, while we love basically every character on HBO's much-missed masterpiece "The Wire," our favorite may have been Detective William 'Bunk' Moreland, as embodied by Wendell Pierce, the warm beating heart of the show, but capable of regular badassery (watch the Season 3 confrontation with Omar, one of the great pieces of television acting by both Pierce and Michael K. Williams, for proof). Like many of the show's stars, the 49-year-old actor has gone on to bigger, if not better, things -- he's currently one of the key cast members in David Simon's 'Wire' follow-up "Treme," and before the year is out he'll crop up in both the comedy "Horrible Bosses" and in mega-franchise film "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Pt. 1." But it looks like he's finally landed a long overdue starring role.

Edward Cullen, They Gonna Beat On Your White Ass Like It Was A Rented MuleNearly two years on from the end of our beloved "The Wire," actors from the show keep cropping up in odd places. Michael Williams (Omar) in "The Incredible Hulk." Seth Gilliam (Carver) in "Did You Hear About The Morgans?" Sonja Sohn (Kima) in "Step Up 2 The Streets." But so far, none have sunk so far as to make an appearance in the "Twilight" franchise. A man got to have a code, after all.
