Will Smith will star as crime boss Nicky Barnes in the Netflix drama “The Council. The thriller centers on a crime syndicate consisting of seven African-American men who ruled Harlem in the 1970s and early 80s with the goal of establishing a self-sufficient and self-policing African American city-state, funded by revolutionizing the drug game. Nicky Barnes was portrayed by Cuba Gooding, Jr., in Ridley Scott’s 2007 film “American Gangster,” which starred Denzel Washington. He died in 2012 but his death did not become known until this year.
