Short-film featuring Michael K. Williams addresses typecasting

In a riveting piece titled “Question Your Answers”, actor Michael K. Williams ponders if his career has felt the impact of typecasting. Williams, most notably known for his role as Omar on The Wire, assumes the role of three additional characters - who all engage in a discussion - in this ad created for The Atlantic. “This whole metaphor is bullshit yo… you think everybody don’t got a role to play?”, argues one of the characters Williams portrays in short-film.

One of the goals of “Question Your Answers” is to encourage viewers “to break down their information silos, challenge established answers, and embrace a lifestyle of continuous interrogation and exploration,” according to The Atlantic.
