Michael Kenneth Williams to Star in 'Spoils Before Dying,' Such a Chalky White Move


Will Ferrell's -- er -- Eric Jonrosh's The Spoils of Babylon will make its return to IFC with The Spoils Before Dying starring Michael Kenneth Williams. The Funny or Die produced mini-series parody is a self described "pulp-noir murder mystery." It will follow Williams' character in the LA jazz scene as a "down-and-out pianist Rock Banyon who becomes the prime suspect when his lead singer and occasional lover is found violently murdered in a car with another man. With the death of two people hanging over his head, Rock has only 72 hours to clear his name or fry in the electric chair. Determined to prove his innocence, Rock goes on an elusive quest for the truth that takes him into an abyss of sex, murder, love, betrayal, and of course, jazz."
