Denzel Washington’s name is sure to come up in conversation again when Hollywood’s awards season arrives. He gives a stunning performance as the title character in the crime thriller Roman J. Israel, Esq. He stars as a defense attorney whose life takes some serious twists and turns after he takes over for one of his firm’s partners. It’s another great role for Washington, who refuses to let himself be stereotyped. The Oscar winner has played cops and coaches, bad guys and good guys, teachers and drug dealers … and you believe every character he plays. Washington credits that to the process he goes through every time he signs on to a movie, and he told us about that process. (Click on the media bar below to hear Denzel Washington)
