Michael K. Williams who was cast as Ol' Dirty Bastard for the film "Dirty White Boy", says he's ready to join the Wu-Tang Clan. The intense actor, who turned heads as Omar in “The Wire,” tells the NY Daily that he’s preparing for his first lead role as the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard in an upcoming biopic about the troubled rapper, but adds that the producers of the movie, tentatively titled “Dirty White Boy,” “have no desire to cast any actors as the Wu-Tang.” So expect to see the RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah and the other members of the groundbreaking hip-hop crew in the film. “We need all hands on deck,” Williams says. Including Inspectah Deck, we hope. In the meantime, Williams is getting the word out about an independent movie for which he’s serving as an executive producer. The film, “Snow on tha Bluff,” chronicles the life of an Atlanta drug dealer. Thanks to the amateur-style video quality, Williams describes it as “the ’hood meets ‘The Blair Witch Project.’”
The film will tell the story of ODB through the eyes of Jarred Weisfeld, a VH1 intern who became the rapper's manager (the writer Hoff befriended them both when he too worked at VH1.
