Williams’ brilliant portrayal of the stick-up king in HBO’s the Wire earned him cult status that he’s since further contributed to with roles on Boardwalk Empire, the Night Of, and various supporting roles in feature films.
Now he gets to play in the Star Wars universe alongside the already impressive cast of the Han Solo film including Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Emilia Clarke, and Woodie Harrelson.
But now that Williams has his foot in the door, we’d like to see the Star Wars saga welcome a few other alumni from HBO’s epic love letter to the city of Baltimore. There’s no shortage of talented actors who’ve appeared on the Wire who could make for some wonderful characters in Lucasfilm’s sci-fi/fantasy playground.
