Michael K. Williams To Star in The Spoils of Babylon Follow-Up “The Spoils Before Dying” at IFC

Yes, it’s the Michael Kenneth Williams that played Omar on The Wire.

Following Tobey Maguire’s Devon Morehouse on IFC mini-series The Spoils of Babylon, Michael K. Williams will star in the upcoming iteration of “Spoils” written by “literary figure” Eric Jonrosh (Will Ferrell).

The follow-up will be called The Spoils Before Dying and Williams will play a jazz pianist in the Los Angeles of yesteryear that gets caught up in a web of deceit and lies in which he tries to clear his name. 

We’re pretty sure Ferrell in a giant hat and a beard, Williams, and a beautifully and intentionally overwrought faux-dramatic mini-series is a winning combination.
