There are countless screen actors out there deserving of acclaim and praise from critics and audiences alike.

Everybody has their favourites and often the challenge is narrowing the list down. On the other hand, you can hear movie and TV enthusiasts argue their case for performers who possess that something special; who elevate everything they’re in, rarely turning in a performance less than remarkable.

For years, many have argued this of Michael K Williams.

Perhaps most famous for his portrayal of Omar Little in The Wire, he also amazed as Albert “Chalky” White on Boardwalk Empire and beyond.

He’s a TV legend and family, friends, fans, and colleagues are utterly devastated to hear of his passing at the age of 54 on Monday, September 6th 2021.

While audiences are taking the time to reflect upon and seek out his TV work, it has to be acknowledged just how many terrific films he’s been in. For those wishing to celebrate the American actor’s life and career, it’s certainly worth giving some of them a watch or revisiting some gems you haven’t seen in a while.

So, let’s consider which Michael K Williams movies are streaming on Netflix…

  • Ghostbusters (2016)
  • Gone Baby Gone
  • The Purge: Anarchy
  • The Red Sea Diving Resort
