Williams' television credits include "Alias," "The Hulk," "Law & Order," "Law & Order: SVU," "Six Degrees," "The Sopranos," "CSI," "Boston Legal" and "Kill Point."
Michael's film career began when Tupac Shakur handpicked him to play his brother in "Bullet." He then went on to appear in "Bringing out the Dead," directed by Martin Scorsese. Williams' other film work includes scene-stealing cameos in "I Think I Love My Wife" and "Miracle at St. Anna." He also played a sympathetic detective in "Gone Baby Gone" (Ben Affleck's directorial debut).
Upcoming film releases for Michael include a lead in Todd Solondz's "Forgiveness" and a starring role opposite Sanaa Lathan and Matthew Broderick in "Wonderful World." He can also be seen in the new Michael Cuesta (L.I.E) film "Tell Tale" and "The Road" starring opposite Viggo Mortenson and Charlize Theron. He has also just completed filming on "Brooklyn's Finest."
