Michael K. Williams Returns to ‘Hap and Leonard’

In the last decade, Michael K. Williams has become one of the most in-demand actors of our time. After dazzling audiences as a gun-toting, drug-dealer-robbing stick up man in The Wire, Williams has gone on to land starring roles in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and The Night Of.

Recently, Williams assumed a different kind of role on SundanceTV’s Hap and LeonardThe show follows two unlikely best friends as they’re pulled into a plan to make some quick cash.

Here’s how SundanceTV describes the show:

Based on the book series by Joe R. Lansdale, Hap and Leonard follows two lifelong best friends — Hap Collins (James Purefoy) and Leonard Pine (Michael Kenneth Williams) – as they find themselves in mucho-trouble, caught in the middle of a murder mystery with more twists and turns than an East Texas highway. The story begins with a skeleton, Trudy’s missing ashes, a literal pissing match with a neighborhood drug dealer, and a piece of MeMaw’s famous pie.

The series will return for a second season next month when the duo embarks on a whole new crazy adventure.
