Michael K. Williams Playing Ol' Dirty Bastard
Oh, indeed, ODB.
Wu-Tang Clan and The Wire's Omar Little, two of the things you least want to fuck wit', will soon be coming together on-screen in a new film. The always great Michael K. Williams has been cast as Russell Jones, aka Ol' Dirty Bastard, aka Dirt McGirt (and so on), in Dirty White Boy, a biopic that will take a look at ODB through the eyes of dirty white Jarred Weisfeld, a 22-year-old VH1-intern-turned-manager who presumably shared the late rapper's love of filth. Cinematographer Joaquin Baca-Asay will make his directorial debut with the project, which is being described as "Risky Business and 8 Mile," marrying a gritty story of ascending rap stardom with Ol' Dirty Bastard dancing in his underwear to celebrate his survival of a second shooting. I guess?
