Michael K Williams, star of The Wire and Boardwalk Empire, has signed up to play Joel Kinnaman's sidekick in MGM's Robocop reboot.
The film already has a helluva cast that includes Hugh Laurie, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Jay Baruchel, Abbie Cornish and Jackie Earle Haley.
Not too shabby.
Williams, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is in discussions to play the police partner of Kinnaman’s officer Alex Murphy and friend to his family in the planned adaptation of the classic 1987 sci-fi film. Meanwhile Elite Squad director Jose Padilha is at the helm.
Frankly though we'd go see see this for Williams alone.
Omar comin, yo!
