Who would’ve thought we’d actually see the life and times of Ol’ Dirty Bastard coming to the big screen? Well, it’s true, and Michael K. Williams of “The Wire” has won the leading role.

The movie, titled “Dirty White Boy,” will be based on the true story of 22-year-old Jarred Weisfeld, a VH1 intern-turned-manager for the Wu Tang Clan star. Directed by newcomer Joaquin Baca Asay, the story will follow Weisfield’s rise and his relationship with ODB, a.k.a. Russel Jones, up through the rapper’s death from an overdose in 2004.

Todd Hagopian, one of the film’s producers, said in a statement:

“I know Michael K. Williams will leave audiences completely in awe as Russell Jones, the man behind the character Ol’ Dirty Bastard.”

I can definitely see it. There’s no word on when filming will begin or when the movie is expected to be released but this should definitely make for an interesting story.

What do you think about this film and Michael Williams taking on this role?
