Michael K. Williams Dies at 54 — How to Watch His Best Movies and TV Shows

Ben Bowman

Michael K. Williams commanded your attention when he was on the screen. With his towering physical presence, nuanced delivery, and impeccable sense of timing, his inclusion in a cast was often the secret ingredient that made entertainment legendary.

While Williams was an actor for many years, his big break came in the first season of HBO’s dearly-loved drama series, “The Wire.” Williams portrayed Omar Little, a seemingly indestructible Robin Hood figure who stole from drug dealers and sought justice for weaker characters. Omar was funny and complicated and adventurous and incredibly smart. President Obama called Omar his favorite character from the show. And if you’ve never seen it, you’re missing out on what many people believe is the single greatest TV series of all time.

Williams received three Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie nominations for his roles in “Bessie” (2015), “The Night Of” (2016) and “When They See Us” (2019)

Nearly all of his best work is available with a subscription to HBO Max.
