    Michael K. Williams Says He Lost The 'Django Unchained' Lead, But There May Be Another Part For Him

    Actor Suggests Tarantino May Write A New Role For Him In The Slavery/Western EpicYou probably know him best as Omar Little from "The Wire" or perhaps as Chalky White in "Boardwalk Empire," and if you've seen his imposing presence on either of those shows, you'll know why many people (including us) pegged him as the perfect lead for Quentin Tarantino's upcoming picture, "Django Unchained."

As you'll know from our list of the ten best shows of the recently completed TV season, two of those shows at present are "Community" and "Game of Thrones." The former a top-flight sitcom starring Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, Ken Jeong and a kick-ass ensemble, the latter an HBO adaptation of a popular series of fantasy novels, a show that rapidly proved itself to be the ballsiest, best-cast, best-plotted show on ...
