Michael K. Williams has scored a key role in HBO’s horror drama “Lovecraft Country” which hails from executive producer Jordan Peele and showrunner Misha Green (“Underground).
The story follows 25-year-old Atticus Freeman (Jonathan Majors), who joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America to find his missing father. The journey sets off their fight to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the malevolent spirits.
Williams will play the role of Montose Freeman, father of Atticus. He’s hard-headed and secretive and despises his son’s fantasy novels, as he believes there’s no way to live in any of those worlds. Jurnee Smollett-Ball, Wunmi Mosaku, Elizabeth Debicki, Aunjanue Ellis and Courtney B. Vance co-star.
