Michael K. Williams of ‘The Wire’ and ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Dies at 54

Williams was best known for his roles on The Wire and Boardwalk Empire. More recently, Williams received Supporting Actor Emmy nominations for Bessie, The Night Of and When They See Us.

More is still to come, obviously, but this is an unexpected tragedy, to be sure. He had so much more work ahead of him. Not only is he a potential Emmy winner, it felt like this was just the start of a new act for his career. Awards Radar sends our condolences to Williams’ family, friends, and more. Rest in Peace, sir.
