Earlier this year, we reported that a new biopic is being made about Ol' Dirty Bastard titled Dirty White Boy, focusing primarily on the last years of his life and his relationship with his manager Jarred Weisfeld. The actor set to star as ODB, Micheal K. Williams, recently told the NY Daily News that the producers hope to cast Wu-Tang members to play themselves in the film, saying that they "have no desire to cast any actors as the Wu-Tang." He added, "We need all hands on deck." Williams has also been researching his role heavily, talking to ODB's mother and people who knew him well, saying, "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." No official word yet on if any Wu-Tang Clan members have signed on, but this sounds promising. RIP ODB.
