Are You Being Typecast?

It's very important, as an actor or comedian pursuing your dreams to ask yourself a very tough question, "Am I Being Typecast?" Here, actor, dancer and reporter Michael K. Williams, of The Wire and The Night Of, wrestles with this himself. Is it too late to break out of stereotypical roles, are you comfortable where you are, what happens if you try to expand outside these boundaries? Williams self awareness is not only enlightening but challenging for personal growth.
