Best known for his tough guy portrayal of Omar Little, Michael K. Williams and Co. has made The Wire a small screen gem.

The true-to-hard-knock-life stories were so well crafted that VIBE crowned the HBO hood drama the no. 1 smartest series.

We recently caught up with Williams at the black carpet premiere for The Great Gatsby in New York to discuss the show’s most memorable moment (hint: two girls, one room), his favorite scene and why The Wire‘s street smarts have set the bar for witty television.
