Wu-Tang Clan ain't nothing to fuck with!
Wu Tang Clan will play themselves in the forthcoming biopic of late rapper Ol' Dirty Bastard, so says The New York Daily News and MTV. Wu member GZA, however, will not be appearing as himself.
Actor Michael K Williams – who portrayed stick-up boy Omar Little in The Wire - will play Ol' Dirty Bastard, but told the Daily News that the producers "have no desire to cast any actors as the Wu-Tang. We need all hands on deck."
To MTV, Williams insisted that the film will be a serious, hard look at the late rapper, who had a thick dossier with the FBI. He said. "There's going to be some comedy, but we're not playing to that," he said. "It's going to be shot as a straight piece, no buffoonery, for lack of a better word. It's only going to cover the last two years of his life when he was released from prison to the day he died. It's just an insight into what he struggled with in the public eye."
