Michael Kenneth Williams Joins Cast of LOVECRAFT COUNTRY

Michael Kenneth Williams has been cast in HBO's "Lovecraft Country," according to Variety.

The series, which is based off of Matt Ruff's 2016 novel, follows Atticus Freeman as he joins up with his friend Letitia and his Uncle George to embark on a road trip across 1950s Jim Crow America IN SEARCH OF his missing father. This begins a struggle to survive and overcome both the racist terrors of white America and the terrifying monsters that could be ripped from a Lovecraft paperback.

Williams is set to play Montrose Freeman, Atticus's father. Described as hard headed and secretive, he's always believed you can't live in a fantasy world, which is why he despises his son's pulp novels. Most of the books on his shelf are nonfiction, history, and political theory.

Williams has worked with HBO on multiple projects, including "The Wire," "Boardwalk Empire," "Bessie," and "The Night Of." He can be seen next in Ava DuVernay's "Central Park Five."
