Glover briefly spoke to media following a quick hospital stint Monday (August 4).
We got Anwan in Maryland Monday … and he made light of the attack at Cafe Asia Sunday AM. Glover — who played Slim Charles on the show — was blindsided when 2 men started beating him and then he was stabbed. Glover says D.C. is a deceptive place … it seems like such a nice place, with The White House and all … but it’s a lot tougher. (TMZ)
Early reports revealed the attack went down yesterday (August 3) morning.

Last year, “Wire” actor Robert F. Chew, better known as ‘Proposition Joe,” died from cardiovascular disease.
Robert F. Chew — best known for playing Proposition Joe on “The Wire” — was found dead yesterday in his apartment in Baltimore … TMZ has learned. According to the coroner in Baltimore, Chew died of cardiovascular disease. “Morbid obesity” was listed as a contributing factor. Chew had very little acting experience before “The Wire” or after. He was on the cult HBO show — which took place in Baltimore — for five seasons. (TMZ)
The show’s creator David Simon reflected on losing a former cast member after the news became public.
“Robert was not only an exceptional actor, he was an essential part of the film and theater community in Baltimore,” David Simon, creator of ‘The Wire’ said in an email Friday. “He could have gone to New York or Los Angeles and commanded a lot more work, but he loved the city as his home and chose to remain here working. He understood so much about his craft that it was no surprise at all that we would go to him to coach our young actors in season four. He was the conduit through which they internalized their remarkable performances.” (Baltimore Sun)
