Casting News of the Day: Omar Coming: Michael K. Williams — best known as Omar Little from HBO’s The Wire and Chalky White from HBO’s Boardwalk Empire — will play a badass biology professor in the last three episode of Community’s upcoming season, according to showrunner Dan Harmon.
“I want to add a layer of intensity to Community,” Harman explained at the show’s Comic-Con panel. “f the show’s ever been too weird to attract new viewers, you can add water to have less flavor and hope it threatens less people, or you can threaten the hell out of everyone with the kind of intensity and flavor that people will get tired of pretending isn’t awesome.”
