My mom would always say that deaths come in 3. Earlier this week we heard about the passing of a comedian Fuquan Johnson, who overdosed on what apparently was Cocaine and Fentanyl. Today we get the news of the passing of esteemed actor Michael K. Williams.

Ironically he had just posted a couple of days ago on Twitter that he was going to be a part of the upcoming George Foreman Bio-pic as a trainer

This is sad news as Michael has played some memorable roles including Omar from The Wire, Chalky White in "Boardwalk Empire", and Montrose Freeman in "Lovecraft Country". He was recently featured during an interview with The Breakfast Club where he talked about things that he was working on in his career that made him a household name in the world. Check out the interview below.

When I checked out his Wikipedia page, it showed that he has some movies coming out in the works. There are reports that drug paraphernalia was found close by, however, there are no immediate reports that this was the cause of his death. The fact is that it is truly sad that a gentleman as talented and young as he was is no longer with us. He talked about his life coming up and how he dealt with drug issues as recently as during his time on "The Wire".

What's amazing is the fact that we always assume that celebrities should have a happy life because they are making money and not realizing that sometimes they want more. We would like to offer our sincerest condolences to his son and family. We will surely remember his name and continue to support his movies and more.
