KD: How do you walk that line? CA: Peter Krause has been like a big brother to me, and he gave me a lot of good advice saying that The Wire is hot and I need to take advantage of it. Some of it may not be pretty, but [I need to] get out there and get good exposure. I'm not of the belief that all exposure is good or all PR is good PR, but he was right. KD: How did you meet Peter? CA: I met him...let's see, he did a miniseries in Albuquerque ["The Lost Room" -- KD], and I did a few stunts there. Nothing big -- they weren't really stunts at all. My friends were producing it for Lionsgate, and at the spur of the moment I came down and did some work on location. I wanted to get away from L.A. and come back to Virginia for a few months and spend time with my family, because it was close to Christmas. So I got a small role doing stunts and doing some crew work to see what working on the crew was like. I didn't like it, but allowed me to go to a new place. Everything was cast, so it wasn't something I could be a part of, but I met Peter there, and probably he's one of the nicest people I've ever met, actor or not. A blessing to be around, for sure. KD: Any truth to the rumors that you'll be on Prison Break? CA: My manager has talked with Casting several times and the right role hasn't come along yet. It would have to be a great role, but I would love to do it. I spoke with Wentworth Miller in Blockbuster a few months ago and we were talking about each other's shows. I complimented him on his work and he said he had heard nothing but good about The Wire. He wanted to rent it and catch up. I told him that my dad was now calling Prison Break his favorite show, instead of The Wire. I told him that he'd taken away my biggest fan [laughs]. So there are no plans as of right now, but I would love to be a part of it if Fox was listening. It's my other favorite show.
