Omar’s back! Known for his role in The Wire, actor Michael Kenneth Williams has been tapped to play the role of the late Dirt McGirt in the upcoming biopic, Dirty White Boy. EW reports:
The movie is based on the final years of ODB’s life — a true story that is nonetheless stranger than fiction. Titled Dirty White Boy, the film focuses on the offbeat friendship between the Wu-Tang Clan co-founder and Jarred Weisfeld, a 22-year-old VH1 production assistant who through a lot of hustle (and the occasional lie) talked his way into becoming the rapper’s manager when Jones was serving a three-year stint in prison in the early 2000s.
