“The Wire”‘s Omar: Now A Mayor

mkwilliams_250x375Omar Little, “The Wire”‘s whistle-happy, profanity-averse, dealer-robbing stickup man (he’s gay, too, but don’t call him the three-letter F word unless you want your head blown off), is my favorite TV character of the past decade. (President Obama also loves him.) Anyway, Michael Kenneth Williams (pictured), who played Omar, portrays a mayor on the new Scorsese TV show, “Boardwalk Empire,” premiering on Sunday. Williams talks about his new character.
