Bubbles, played by Andre Royo is obviously one of my favorite characters. A more likable dope fiend has not been created since "Gary" from Simon's earlier HBO miniseries, "The Corner" (Gary was a real person though). When most people discuss Bubbles, they throw in words like Shakespearian or Dickensian, but I think he can speak for himself. Andre Royo has done numerous interviews over the years, but this one is particularly great. The interviewer seems a bit condescending or silly ("did you do research on this role har har") but Royo is simply classy.

Royo is a seriously great actor and some of his scenes are the most poignant of the show. You can be sure that this won't be the last post about Bubs.
