Yeah that got me too, watching the trailer and spotting all those familiar faces (Bunk and Lester from The Wire, John Goodman, the ones you mentioned) just added to the excitement I've had building since I first heard about this. I'd watch anything David Simon does, but along with the great cast and idea (struggling musicians in post-Katrina New Orleans) I have to say I really can't wait.

If you have time I'd strongly recommend you watch Homicide: Life on the Street, which Simon also wrote. It has a completely different feel to The Wire, but it's still a fantastic show and worth your time.
