At The Atlantic, we believe it’s never been more important to take on established answers with tough questions. Here, Michael K. Williams, of The Wire and The Night Of, wrestles with one of his own: Is he being typecast?

Stage one is…the minicab driver/terrorist/cornershop owner…Stage two is the subversive portrayal, taking place on “ethnic” terrain but aiming to challenge existing stereotypes…And stage three is the Promised Land, where you play a character whose story is not intrinsically linked to his race.
