Omar Little

Played by Michael K. Williams

As one of Baltimore's most notorious stick-up artists, Omar Little brings another element to the game: the hunt. With his long duster, battle armor and the sweep of his shotgun, he adds an additional element of risk for Baltimore's dealers. Uncomfortable with profanity and careful to rob only dealers and others in the game who can have no complaint to police, Omar shows particular pride when taking off the stronger organizations .

Remembering Michael Kenneth Williams

Michael Kenneth Williams was an extraordinary artist, adept at bringing characters like Omar Little, Chalky White, and Montrose Freeman into vivid color. A beloved member of the HBO family for more than 20 years, Williams is remembered not only as an immensely talented actor, but as a civil justice advocate. He will be profoundly missed.

Actors from The Wire, Lovecraft Country, and Boardwalk Empire pay tribute to the late Michael Kenneth Williams.
