In Praise of David Costabile

David Costabile

I first saw David Costabile as Mel's submissive husband on the hilarious Flight of the Conchords.  It was a small role, but merely a sign of things to come.

I then saw him in Season Five of The Wire as Managing Editor Thomas Klebanow.  The Wire, as you may know, is my favourite television series of all-time.  Again, it was a pretty small role, but it was pretty cool seeing someone from FotC on The Wire.

Then, while watching one of my favourite shows since The Wire, I saw him on Breaking Bad in a pretty juicy role.  He was Gale Boetticher, and I won't spoil anything by telling you about Gale Boetticher.


For playing a recurring character in Flight of the Conchords, The Wire and Breaking Bad, I thought David Costabile deserved a little praise.
