Omar from ‘The Wire’ to play Ol’ Dirty Bastard in new movie ‘Dirty White Boy’

The late, great Ol’ Dirty Bastard is getting immortalized on the silver screen. Entertainment Weekly reports that the Joaquín Baca-Asay-directed film will be called Dirty White Boy, and will star Michael K. Williams who played Omar in The Wire. (Baca-Asay was the cinematographer for the video for Jay-Z’s 99 Problems.)
The film focuses on the relationship between Ol’ Dirty Bastard and his manager, Jarred Weisfeld, during the last years of ODB’s life. No word yet on when the film will go into production. According to Entertainment Weekly, both Weisfeld and ODB’s mother, Cherry Jones, approve of the project.
