    R.I.P. Robert F. Chew
    By THE DEADLINE TEAM

    Actor Robert F. Chew, best known for the character Proposition Joe he
    played on HBO’s The Wire, has died. Chew died Thursday at his home in
    Baltimore of apparent heart failure. He was 52.

    Chew broke into TV with a role in Homicide: Life on the Street and
    appeared in the miniseries The Corner and the TV movie Something The
    Lord Made. He also taught and mentored young actors at Baltimore’s
    Arena Players, and he maintained his relationship with the troupe
    after his career took off with David Simon’s HBO series. He introduced
    new talent from the group to casting directors and coached young
    actors who played students in the Baltimore City School system in
    Season 4 of The Wire. Chew continued to teach in the Arena Players
    Youth Theatre after The Wire ended production in 2007.

    ”Robert was not only an exceptional actor, he was an essential part of
    the film and theater community in Baltimore,” Simon said today in an
    email to The Baltimore Sun. “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”. Simon added, “Robert’s
    depiction of Proposition Joe was so fixed and complete — from the very
    earliest scenes — that the writers took for granted that anything we
    sent him would be finely executed.”

    Prop. Joe didn't look too healthy, one of those police guys was a real fat fuck too.

    I already knew he was dead. Cheese set him up. Ungrateful fuck-up nephew. Prop Joe was the only honest heroin dealer in town!
