The majority of the cast members were new faces when The Wire initially aired. In a decade, viewing it will be like to watching an All Star Game. Actors like Michael B. Jordan, Idris Elba, Lance Reddick, and others made their careers as household names after appearing in the legendary David Simon TV series. Michael K. Williams has also kept on rising. He portrayed the sympathetic villain Omar on the programme, and since then, he has appeared in such films as Boardwalk Empire, 12 Years a Slave, Robocop, The Purge: Anarchy, and others.
Williams, though, landed a small part in Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk just about the time The Wire ended its run on television. Sadly, it was only in the movie for approximately five seconds when it first came out. Below is a tale about Michael K. Williams’ appearance as the Incredible Hulk.
Here is a clip of Williams from the film. Read what he said to Cinemablend about what it initially was down below:
It was actually a scene that got cut out. It was a scene where I got caught between the Abomination and the Hulk, and I was trying to stop them from tearing up the streets of Harlem. But then when I saw the Abomination was just so irate I told the Hulk to go kick his ass.
I leave the structure. And yes, I yell. Then, while I’m racing alongside everyone else, I suddenly find myself trapped between the Hulk and the Abomination. “Holy sh*t, what am I going to do?” I exclaim. Everyone should relax. Stop making a mess of my streets. Why are you so resistant to liking Connecticut? and combat there! What brings you to Harlem? Finally, the Abomination becomes really enraged, at which point I say, “You know what, Hulk, I don’t like him.” Go stomp on him!
Williams was really disappointed that his scene was omitted because, according to him as well, Edward Norton wrote it. But in all honesty, it seems like it only delayed the anticipated major showdown. What do you think of Michael K. Williams’ appearance as the Incredible Hulk?
