“Omar Little” wind-up toy by Mister Frothee.
One of television’s most multifaceted characters, IMO, is The Wire‘s “Omar Little” played by intense actor Michael K. Williams. In a recent interview with New York Magazine, Williams mentioned the music he would listen to in order to get into character for “Omar.” Their Vulture blog went one step further and asked Williams for his entire playlist.  Apparently, ask, and ye shall receive ‘cos they got the full, hour-long playlist from him.

Williams warns: “I tend to stay away from the Omar playlist … I know where it’s gonna take me.”
