Michael K. Williams 1966-2021

WTF? Amazing actor in everything. I was always waiting for that one starring role that would put him over the top but it never came along. RIP.

Omar dead is your title. Probably my favorite tv character ever. I have a tshirt that says Omar Coming. RIP. No role after that could have been better.

WHAT THE FUCK CMON

He always brought it no matter the role and no matter the quality of movie/tv show he was in. He could elevate so much. Omar is one of my favorite tv characters ever. this sucks.

RIP

The We Hate Movies podcast has a term they use now, and then for a “now we’re talking” actor. And any time I’d see him on the screen I’d think “MKW. Now we’re talking!” He was just one of those few actors I’d always love seeing when they’d pop up in something.

Aside from the obvious, he was really good in The Night Of and he was in my favourite episode of Community.

And I can't believe he was 54.

The Night Of was fantastic. Not enough people talk about that one. I went into that one blind, and was so glad to see him there.

He was on WTF like 6-7 months ago talking about his recovery from drug addiction. This is a damn tragedy. One of my absolute favorite actors. Omar Little is definitely on the Mt. Rushmore of television characters for me.
Marc Maron rereleased this episode without his pre interview rant and post interview rant/guitar noodling.

Always great in anything I saw him in. Brief soap box moment, but too many black men in particular are dying before they hit 50, 60 years old.
 
Dude was such a presence on the screen. Brought so much heart, complexity and vulnerability to his characters that it made him the center of attention even when he wasn’t the main guy. This sucks.
