The 5 Best Characters on Boardwalk Empire

Chalky White

Perhaps people will start referring to Michael K. Williams as something other than the guy who played Omar on the The Wire. Chalky White is the king of Atlantic City's black gangsters, who's simultaneously trying to give his family a life that isn't so gangsta. He oozes cool in every scene, like a Jules Winnfield of Prohibition. And after helping save Nucky's life at the end of this season, Chalky will hopefully get more power in Season Four. Plus, he's going to make a really interesting father-in-law.
