Have you heard about the guy who put it all on red? Michael K. Williams, the star of ‘The Wire,’ ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and the upcoming ‘RoboCop’ remake is here to tell you all about it. It’s a story about personal style and what having it really means in this too-cool-for-words short film titled ‘The Reinvention.’
The folks over at MR PORTER put this little reel together for their iPad Magazine, featuring Williams telling an urban legend about a gent down on his luck but still dripping with swag. In his last roll of the dice to regain his fortune, the barefooted man steps into a casino with nothing but an impeccable suit on his back, not even shoes, and puts everything on red. How does the story end? There’s a nice little twist that’ll just make you appreciate this celeb’s swag even more than you did on the ‘Boardwalk.’
