William Bunk Moreland

Played by Wendell Pierce

Whether working back on a mope or a moldering John Doe, The Bunk is a skillful, cigar-toting veteran of the homicide detective. As partner, Bunk and McNulty worked in tandem both on and off the job, doing as much damage in bars and, with luck, bedrooms, as they ever manage in the way of police work. Loyal, dry and hilariously profane, The Bunk is married with three kids, and is a student of psychology and manipulation - a good interrogator and a cop for whom a glance or a stray word can tell whole stories. He has a low threshold for bullshit, excepting his own, of course
