Interview with Michael K. Williams

Another great Fresh Air Podcast interview from Terry Gross. This one is on Michael K. Williams, better known as Omar on the Wire. Omar is one of my favorite TV characters of all times. Lot's of great background on Michael K, how he got the gig and some pretty crazy anecdotes from his life. Definitely worth your time.

By the way, the Wire was just incredible this week. I've successfully converted about 4-5 Kenny Kellogg readers into Wire viewers and these folks inevitably send me emails saying they've "watched two seasons in 1 week" or "I'm completely hooked." Folks, start watching it, beginning with Season 1. It's that good.
