Michael K. Williams was found dead Monday in his penthouse apartment in Brooklyn New York.
Investigators say drug paraphernalia was found near his body.
The 54-year-old New York City native most recently appeared in HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” and the series “F is for Family.”
Williams was next slated to co-star in Sony’s George Foreman biopic.
Williams was a five-time Emmy nominee. He was also the winner of a SAG award for “best ensemble” along with the cast of “Boardwalk Empire.”
