Michael K. Williams https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/06/arts/michael-k-williams-dead.html.  He was a multi-talented individual who brought some truly iconic and unforgettable characters to life (Omar Little is probably the biggest fan favorite), but obviously he had numerous personal struggles throughout his own life.  He was obviously well regarded by his colleagues and sounds like a genuinely kind and giving person as well.

Yes--Mcdonald didn't want audiences to regard him any differently, and nothing was allowed to get in the way of the comedy. The guy made me laugh a lot.

Norm was fearless: "I bet it's spelled b-o-r-e-d!"
