From Business Insider by Jonathan Marino:
Isiah Whitlock, Jr., who played corrupt State Senator Clay Davis on HBO’s “The Wire,” is apparently tired of being stopped on the street by strangers who ask him to repeat his catchphrase from the enormously popular show.
And now, he’s ready to make some money off of it.
No different than the enterprising legislator Whitlock played (Clay Davis), the real-life character is now marketing a bobblehead that spouts off his famous catchphrase. And, fans of The Wire are buying in.
Whitlock’s Kickstarter campaign is fully-subscribed, several times over. As of Wednesday morning, Whitlock’s fund for his foul-mouthed doll — which initially sought just $12,500 — had topped more than $40,000.
