Who sat next to me in celebrity hotspot Cafe Grumpy today? Clark Johnson, a.k.a. heroic city editor Gus Haynes from The Wire! Of course he is a big fan* of Gawker:

I told him I liked The Wire and he said, totally unbidden and without having any idea who I was, "Yesterday somebody sent me a thing from Gawker.com about how they stripped the set."

Whoa, hey, alright! He also said he hasn't watched some of the earlier seasons of The Wire yet, but it's on his agenda. This is the most exciting celebrity sighting here since the Williamsburg hair man.

*(May or may not be a fan.)
