    Michael K. Williams, the actor who played Omar Little on The Wire, has been cast as Ol' Dirty Bastard of Wu-Tang Clan fame in the film Dirty White Boy.

    ODB passed away in 2004, after overdosing on drugs. He was a polarizing figure who was involved in criminal activities but also lived for his work in rap.

    The story of the film is told from the perspective of Jarred Weisfeld, a manager and a former VH1 intern who went on to work with ODB, per Deadline.

    The film has elements of "darkness, humor and humanity."

    Does this sound like a film you'd watch?
