Michael K. Williams will soon add the name Russell Jones right above Omar Little and Chalky White on his IMDB page. As reported, the star of The Wire and Boardwork Empire will play the late, great Ol’ Dirty Bastard in an upcoming biopic about the rapper.
Recently, Williams offered a taste of his role at the Sandy Relief Concert at Brooklyn Bowl where he performed the ODB classic “Brooklyn Zoo”. He does a pretty good job of keeping those planets in orbit. Check out the replay below (via The AV Club).
According to The AV Club, the Dirty White Boy has yet to begin production or acquire the music rights, but reportedly all of the surviving members of the Wu Tang Clan have been tapped to appear in the film.
