Michael Kenneth Williams’s 5 most popular quotes

  • I use my job to engage empathy and compassion for people society might stereotype or ostricise.
  • I am the epitome of the underdog. By societies standards I should have been dead a long time ago, and I was nobody’s gangster, I wasn’t a thug, I wasn’t selling drugs on the corner – I was scared of that.
  • I am a dark-skinned, nappy-headed, scar-faced dude from the streets of Brooklyn. I can’t hide from being who I am. It’s all over my face.
  • I understand pain very well, so I look for that in a role. If the characters are well-written, don’t tell nobody, but I’ll do the damn thing for free. I’m serious. It’s the writing. I love beautifully flawed characters.
  • When you love someone unconditionally, you go to war for them, and they do that for each other. They know they can call each other when they need each other. In this day and age, everyone needs a friend like in Hap and Leonard.
