Michael K. Williams (of The Wire and Boardwalk Empire) will be starring as late rapper, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, in a new movie called Dirty White Boy.

The movie chronicles the real-life story of Harred Weisfeld who, at the age of 22 while interning at VH1, talked his way into becoming ODB’s manager while the rapper was in jail.

“We both knew full well who Ol’ Dirty Bastard was but this story completely floored us. As filmmakers, we knew that this would make a great film and that Jarred Weisfeld would offer an actor a complicated and compelling character to play,” said Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy, producers of the film. “This felt to us like Risky Business and 8 Mile, with equal elements of darkness, humor, and humanity.”

Dirty White Boy is still in the pre-production phase.
