Hi-ho, the derry-o

So I'm at home, organizing stuff with Wigstock: The Movie playing in the background. I've never seen it before and I do like talented drag queens, but still I'm barely paying attention. Near the end of the movie I look up during Crystal Waters drag king performance and say to myself, "Is that Michael K. Williams, better known as Omar on the best TV show ever The Wire, as a back-up dancer?!" Through the magic of Tivo (and a quick Google to confirm that he was a dancer for Waters), it is confirmed. Michael K. Williams, pre-scar, is in Wigstock: The Movie furiously workin' it.

Couldn't find a online clip of it so I just took pictures off the TV screen.


  1. Dude, you neglected to mention his most important work -- his role in "Trapped in the Closet."
