Watch Michael K. Williams channel ODB on stage at Brooklyn Bowl

Footage of proud Williamsburg resident and actor Michael K. Williams hopping on stage at Brooklyn Bowl during a Sandy relief concert last month has just emerged. The man known for his incredible performance as Omar on HBO’s The Wire gave a high energy performance of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Brooklyn Zoo. Not coincidentally Williams will also be channeling ODB in the forthcoming film Dirty White Boy. Last year Michael K. Williams spoke to MTV about the task of portraying ODB:

“I am doing a lot of research on Russell,” Williams said recently on the set of the upcoming short film “They Die by Dawn.” “I had the pleasure of meeting his beautiful mother, Ms. Cherry. We sat down for, like, three hours, and she told me the most amazing stuff about her son and a lot of things that the public didn’t know. I’ve been talking to people who know him well … people who knew him when the cameras weren’t rolling,” Williams said. “I’ve got a lot of insight into who he was as a human being and as a man and, dare I say it, scholar. The dude was quite smart. You have to be able to recite mathematics and be 5 percent of god body — you can’t play with that. You have to know what you’re talking about. It’s a lot of studying, a lot of knowledge.”
