Where Kevin you know wow it's empty? It's been a long time since we've done one of these <hes>. How long has it been since we recorded this podcast I mean the last one was recorded? I wasn't even there apparently <hes> Fan. Let me know it was April. Seventh two thousand sixteen was the last one wow so that was for me. That was one child ago. Oh I got three now I two when we last recorded. I got three responsibility. I know I know I got three now. I got three now. He I called him. I called him yesterday who ten thirty ten forty six hundred forty five ten forty five and he was like why are you calling at midnight. I was like I don't get calls a temporary. How's it happening as I call? I was thinking Oh this is going to be a weird. Normally people at that our texts you first. Are you awake because the crew brings the whole families in the way. Let's see hopefully somebody died interrupting the whole words yes. I did think it was like later that it was on my way out and I didn't have time to tiny type. Let me just call it. Well yeah so yeah so it's been awhile since we did this. Last one. I was even on U.. Ended the PODCAST. I had to find on twitter listen. We need to explain what I wish. Dave's face up to be like a moderate meeting income ringed mediator Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. He really likes you to get out so here's what happened <hes>. I was still in New York when we were still doing this. You're you had stepped away for awhile. Yeah I think I I was working on David here interesting <hes> but we you yeah I think you were working in first season in the United States three hundred sixteen absolutely yeah so I was doing. I was doing a run of them by myself. And then I got the job on <hes> Jim Jeffrey Show I had to move to Los Angeles and and we recorded the podcast during the week and so we I was not able anymore and we kinda tease that it was going to wrap up anyway but we we only had a few left and it just sort of like on twitter people like what do they mean. It's over what they mean. It's over Burger. I do like that now. The podcasts are a lot of them are like and it's done do like five <hes> because before that used to be the I've never had my own podcast but it was always like the daunting weeks outta. How do we keep it up to France? He'll SA- junior ever popular guest yeah so but we had a few more movies to to talk about and then Denzel made a couple of more. He made a couple more more and then what happened was that we kept we've talked to finding is people don't realize we haven't even talk that much. Since two thousand sixteen not that much we weren't you guys won the top podcasts for like a day or for like essence eh top podcast a weekly once. We're never chain that was my shining moment. It was exciting but <hes> yeah and then we just but then we haven't talked much just funny I mean we've stayed. We stayed friendly's not quite Bobby Brown and and <hes> but <hes> we we haven't talked much but then and we've talked about every night against like hey we should try to wrap it up. Yeah we have made attempts and then I got invited to for the reasons David here I got invited to the F. by tribute lifetime achievement award to one Mr Denzel Hayes Washington. Everybody was there man well and I would not have everybody everybody. Who was Oh yeah all right? How would you be nominated? Okay tell them you know. I got a phone. Call I think from you. I've felt slightly awkward but I felt like I pry tell you so I got an email. Saying what would it have gone down if I just saw the photos arguably I- Righetti for a yeah just randomly. Hey what without knowing thing at all been legitimately funny so I I got an email because I was like Oh. Maybe he got that email too. I don't know but it was like Denzel wants people there who he like he's worked with. That's not me or people he admires and I was like. I don't think that's me either there. It must be well. Yes so does he know about he knows he knows I guess through well two things one about which was face and then at one don't show I know he <hes> he didn't at first he hadn't heard about it and then he then he remembered someone had mentioned it to him. He called he he knew I was totally bias said the brother that's always talking. Oh yeah he said Yeah that guy on the Internet the talking about it's so social so so you don't WanNa podcast. Here's a crazy about that. I don't think I mentioned this during the when I originally told the story I I think Debbie Allen was standing there next what you'd never told me. I don't think friends very wet comes out years later. He was Dacian now. I know I don't know if Debbie and so it was I he won't be which Debbie <music> beyond stop but it was him Alicia and then Dr Boyd and I just locked on the fact that Denzo standing in front of me and the whole time. I've never really looked at the woman later I realize was <music> this in your doctor's office Dr we had prostate check coincidence. I don't know why Debbie Allen was there but yeah so she was <hes> that's funny that you just he just vanished into the elevator after talking literally step back and the doors just shut like all right brother announcing so yeah so we get contact agrees and then I don't know if we talked on the podcast but during the the run up to I think fences they reach out to you by the producer by people who were representing movie saying that they were thinking about trying to get him on the podcast what I heard and I talked to you about that yes and then at some point. I said WHOA WHOA is selling what he's saying talking about. People don't WanNa see his old as me and you talk about him. That's what I told him. I talked today when I said how. Should I handle this and he said you you know I said you don't need Kevin Walkaway WanNa win. Emmy nomination must have five so they started this runner. I don't think we thought it was there was this sort of like maybe maybe this will work and this will work and this and then eventually it just sort of like it. All fences came out and I was like I guess it's not happening went away. He was GonNa do a day and then he changed in the couldn't he was not available to do this. Yes would it have been able to fix. I mean but I also understood. We've talked to this on the podcast. He doesn't do any nonsense like people like well. Nobody never was like Tom. Hanks Doodoo shows up on Conan just for fun. <hes> you know what I mean. Just for like I'll come. They did exactly he's never he never just shows. I'm not promoting here because you called me funny idea. He doesn't do that stuff so it doesn't. I'm not offended. We've talked with this. I'm not offended he didn't do it. I understand also don't think he's do. He's not even on podcasts of any kind. I know that he's talked about social media. Yeah you talked about it that night but I talk about it in another context where he is. There's certain older black. Do you put that the remote control him gene in there now isn't it. They like people who becames like super famous famous. They sort of don't have sort of social media is that he used to he call it fuck twitter famous. The Hudson men is he is he. He mentioned he's been on term. He's he's analogous fighting me at every expect. It's a fact that's not a critic I have not. I'm not like you of course I'd rather be like they come back. Welcome back everybody. Here's the three calling for go ahead so we never he never did IT I. I don't think you know which we were. We're not offended by but then this e mail comes out of the blue the says he won't that there's this thing and I and literally got emails like it made my stomach hurt like <hes> like like this is weird to go to his tribute like I've never met the man yeah but he obviously he. Is it in mirer or else. He wouldn't have been there yeah yeah. That's the most positive spin yeah no I suppose but I just felt like it was probably like some body connected with him. Maybe as mirer and so they were like in the you know the Space Davila table with his ex accountant. You know what I mean like like we lost and when I got there and I saw Ed Begley and his wife I was laughing because I go okay. I see what's going on. It was kind of Nice. It was a wide variety of people you know who who I e sceret. Forget the podcast a uh-huh. I found out to digress for minute. I'm doing a queen sugar. This year and Eva goes. She's there with her. Mom who looks exactly like Eva and I was like you know. Thanks so much having so much it's fun. I hadn't seen her in person since I started doing the show and she goes why didn't really give you. This job is going to be and she goes. Actually it is my mom she goes. I know you David but you know we're not like really close friends and my mom said I you know I have trouble casting this role S- particular role and she said you should give it to David Gura. He's this. He's that Dan thank you about the remodel eleven to get show and that's when David's phone rang and get out of the room. I don't do that but that's just in my area because it was so huge yeah yeah that if you really wanted to do what I call a strategic walk around then because there were breaks because it start my at my invitation leg pack a lunch get to forty five years and the show kicks up at eight I was like damn knows I mean and it was a big room and so we join one of the brakes I was there with Melissa my wife <hes> still my wife since podcast and and <hes> we and she was like let's walk around and I was like I just she's like let's go 'cause she wanted to like move through the room and see and gals wanted me to move through but how many hours in was that that was two hours in case he's saying but I'm GonNa speak for your wife. She's saying and to keep our metabolic activity correct. Let us walk around. Get you on a plane when it's like get up and walk around and put your knees up bringing up old GRANDPA workout. We spotted each other because I was doing the same thing where you're trying to look cool but you stretch you leg up on a table. You told I mean it was it was an event it was but they covered. It's a lifetime tribute. They covered every inch of life and that they they were very thorough because I didn't see it aired on T._V. and I I didn't watch it but I kinda wanted to see how long it was on T._v.. How long wasn't four hours? No I'm sure it was not real quick so I got out and I was going home and I saw shoot fly. What is his name? I forget comedian. He Jay Fair no but he was with the okay.

Long are cabral and I just could not. I'm like no I can't we went. We went to the after party. No I'm not going because we were trying soaking up. We got when we got there too. The red carpet line the first person we saw was the back of Morgan Freeman.

His mom talked to <music>. Okay Yeah talked to Michael Jordan. WHO's a big Fan? I was kind of like hey what about sure nobody was wasn't I will say that that part was surprising pleasantly and inspiring that Denzel had used his has and continues to use his fame and his position to help young actors. Oh yes a lot of them who came you know stood up and testify. Yeah we talked with where we started this pocket. We talked about who the next Denzo was. When we started this podcast Catholic who is the act of the black man actor's GonNa we talked about how they could be him and <hes> but we are you him yet people at the time there was really like we don't know who could be? It's funny how in that time time that has passed like Chad who was there is certainly in position who is like we don't want Denzel paid his scholarship or some yeah Ted to Bozeman and I never spoken to Chadwick before four. We were all like in this green room and just really cool guy but he I mean like we've he was there <hes> yeah another thing is very to see them. Once h talking about here we like Oh this is he doesn't have take time to one person on the podcast talking about <hes> Antoine Fisher yeah that was one of the things she talked about is how he's like Derek Luke and sort of those phones you know herself included you know I mean American gangster. There's a funniest. He's basically walking with a bunch of young black male sick. One of these guys like a bad ass agent won't saying I got common before I got ta over here aw over here <hes> a reporter asked in Zell in an interview who is who is the next Denzel Washington and Dinh's OPAS knee said they're not looking looking for the next Enzo.

Just I sit with long as fuck it wasn't it was at five hours or four and a half it was I mean I really don't know how long it was but it was long it was it was it would you leave and just step outside for like an hour cameras following you <hes> <hes> boy is they're also making a T._v.. Show I mean it was also like it was like a tribute. It was also attributed the talking about the all the work they've done at the beginning they gave an award and I don't the to the woman who is like one of beyonce's main collaborators director eliminate his name. I don't have have on me and when they're now who's giving her. The award suddenly beyond say floats out on stage and in a room full of famous people like Oh.

Did anyone see his because I'd always be curious what he he wasn't there as I recall because this was before his part starts oh just chilling actually in the back you probably standing next year when she walked remember he has elevated spore portion of the theater. It was like he was like the day that he was sitting with with thrown yeah yeah yeah it was like in the middle of the room instead of the front of the room it was elevated so he can sort of see over everybody and also we all look back at him and say was he thinking <hes> and he's he was at the dance was his wife Julia Roberts <hes> <hes> likely clearly and then I think Denzel's daughter and everybody else Tyson yeah.

Oh Yeah Oh you chuck yeager check. It was like amen trying to show this Nigga down our throat verbatim and I just was is a real story. Somebody's got to say that's a great movie. Somebody's gotTa do the movie because they showed him in. I'm young what do you respond onto some speculation that when you going to go into space news no comment during a press conference well I hope anytime awesome here's the last mission the three thousand he was talking. He was talking to say well. I guess at one point as I guess the nation just needed time to get used to the idea of a black astronaut house like damn it was so far like they don't. They don't want black man space. They want all the black rake in Spain. We get all of them. You could go to ship the size of the titanic. He'll only need guests to. They won't be coming back. Damn <hes> okay so you did your lap you. Oh you meet more. I of the show like so beyond doubt is then <hes> just look up director of lemonade. That's Sushi Khalil Joseph or something. That was the woman right. There's a woman yeah but did she do a short she did. She did <hes> she and I rented a bunch of blocking the on T._v.. And and wasn't she because I feel like I know Avis is connected with the A._F._C. The training program yes and <hes> maybe I thought this woman <hes> attended the training program or something because no this I can't. I'm kind of fun to name. It gets Molina thome the how old black masters the girl Melina met soukous vary go. That's it. That's it. That's her. Yes yes because I didn't. I didn't know what she looked like. What was what I was? I was about to walk down the red carpet and then she walks up with the people like she needs to go next and I was like okay like basically like you're not you're. You're you get your rick insult. After insult nigger places like I don't know who this is but I'm sure they have a reason for it and later nick. Thank God it to make a thing about it. No no I go next how it's always bested or whatever you know. What kind of revolution is our? It's always best as just I've always said in. If <hes> have a strong opinion do not talk about it do not want any trouble how dare you and then they introduced Denzel after that and he walks through he comes out on stage and walks through the crowd and like sort lake shakes hands gangster movie yeah it felt very it felt very like very frank. Lucas Very Frank Lucas exactly what if there was also funny to see when they did the clip packages of scenes movies and it was venturing as knowing this podcast which ones they left out like I there was not a heart condition anywhere. I don't go sting no heart condition. I don't think there was a there was no virtuosity soldiers story they met they mentioned it. I think that somebody they somebody mentioned somebody talked about seeing him. In there was some little his is a testament to just the breadth of Denzel career that you know I was sitting there and I feel probably everybody who's there was a my moment or my time. wisden's <hes> was really important. <hes> you know we met off Broadway at the Negro Ensemble. We did soldiers play then we went on to do the movie together and <hes> but this is what I'm thinking I'm sure they're going to go back and then ah just watching everything. He's done it. Just it's not there's a long moment a moment in time because he is that dude just crazy crazy <hes> <hes> create with a lot of with a lot of high points so easy to like you like yeah you could do a whole thing about soldiers play in house you know we've talked about on the show yes so much about his evolution USA. Even watching this movie virtuosity last year like Oh this is when he was doing this type of thing you know like every era of Denzel has this. There's that point. This is the moment when you know yeah and isn't he. I guess he's an action star. Now I yeah it's funny in his yeah with with equalizer to the first sequel because Antoine Fuqua gave a speech and he talked about how equalizer to he's like we we did equalizer. Would you trading day. We did equalizer to although Denzel. It's not really it's not a sequel Denzel doesn't do Sequels Reaction Right uh-huh joke John Yet <hes> but yeah he was <hes> Jamie Fox went up there and sort of like you can see the prompt or for everybody boxing up there <unk> holding Mike like a stand up comic and nothing in the prompter likely Jamie was just like I was back in this green room part and they were all like Jamie. Jamie's is going to do his own thing yeah yeah. It's always funny when that when you see the faces he's we just I hope for the best there's no tax tanner. Let's all pray he is. You can go nothing. I'll just the cool gets that Jamie Foxx talked about is how when he was nominated around Ray uh-huh and Denzel had come over for dinner at Jamie Fox's it was Jamie and a couple of a few other younger actors and Denzel was kind of that you know he's the godfather like you know. Ask Him questions about the industry and really giving counsel and guidance and I think that's really cool. I didn't know that yeah he did that. No I mean Michael. Jordan talked <hes> immersion like we said all of them. Were like very clearly like I. I wouldn't be here without you. Yes directly yes. They were not they were all very you know. It's funny because Jamie's a little bit older than those guys but here talking about they'll do like to think all those use of popped in like the last two years I feel like Jamie's of the age where airs careers of the age where he's someone who denzel would have just grabs it coming from. I mean well about that yeah. I think that was around that time for Black Mike Hollywood or this tableau the Black Luma Nadi brothers gave him some knowledge. It was going to reveal asu blown out because you know removing smoke on his you can see but you can't see that black made a black aluminum joke around spike podcast. He was very much like nope. Nope don't make it's like he's like I don't want to do that and he went onstage. Talk Spike we talked and told the story he told on the podcast but how Oscar Toys New Malcolm X.. You know when we were doing boomerang. <hes> I think you where he came. Denzel came and Spike we did the pool scene Putin shooting pool in Morocco and Denzel came to the set they were doing Malcolm X. and he came to set in character. I'm saying 'cause he talked about spike was talking about. Oh Yeah. He's in character and you gotTA. You know. This is how he did it. I'm telling you when I came to. I got to New York in eighty one. <hes> that was one of the stories I think it was a small theater downtown and New York and Denzel had done a play called the chickens. Come home to roost when you played Malcolm X. and they're like dude that I may people people were saying he he laid related out. We're going into a soldier's play. They were doing I was going into but everybody talked about it. Yes so he came to the set in we all we all talk and everything and everybody was like he's. He's as you guys know. I will not stop brother. Would you stop will will you start buying the bullshit that these caucus feeding you <music> especially on the Senate. That's pretty intense boomerang. We were like Gimme a Dick Joe. I'll give you a dick joke why he talked about it and they had all these clips which I haven't seen that how air on T._v. these clips of interviews with him where he was talking about his career and he talked about how being in Characters Malcolm X. was. He's like it was pretty. He's that it was it was pretty addictive or pretty easy as always be Malcolm X.. He's like and he started sitting there like I like this white light shining uh-huh oh yeah look at you basket eating masters leftover protein on my he was like Denzel Kurt Day like a black T. shirt black jeans and then sort of like doing six year old into doing Malcolm X. as he's sitting there in the interview the windows addictive per addictive characters sweet spot. Damn we don't want I'd be mad. Walk around talking like that. I just don't I mean I feel like there's gotta be extra like Malcolm X.. We talked. It was four collector's edition where there's all the extra. Denzel is Malcolm X. Footage. I would totally pay to see that Yeah I. I wonder if it's funny because when I was watching equalizer I looked up and there's this there's retribution version of the film where they just play the movie and then cut away to Denzel and Antoine Fuqua talking about it and so with new like with a new digital release releases a moment. There's gotta be something like that somewhere twenties equalizer to and it rolled out that was the most I've ever seen. Denzel do regular movie sort of like promotions and stuff. You know what I mean like. Did you do well it. You did okay Dr Google you know I worked with Ashton Sanders who was a kid in that and he was Oh yeah that he was the <hes> the kid moonlight right he was in moonlight and the the new Wu Tang <hes> is he. He's hanging American story yeah. I don't know who he plays but did you find right now. He <hes> let's see here we go. It is <music> box office hundred ninety million dollars worldwide so but yeah like it's just interesting to see like he was doing because you know they do now. Is I watch as a fan of the N._B._A.. Every big movie comes especially marvel movies. They do some where commercial where it's like like the avengers and they show the movie of injuries versus the avengers and it's like five basketball players on this this this playoffs began basketball ham handed like you know like a cross like really ham fisted casinos commercials you know so but he was doing like like there was some series of commercials where it was like somebody was <hes> dishing to be in equal attitudes bunch of basketball players auditioning for and it was just like it was the most I'd ever have to do regular Taylor. You'll do that for fences. Yes that for you. Don't do that for Roman Roman Jay Israel that was the last movie I saw room in Israel and I liked it because it was different. Yeah I mean it was like that. When we we haven't talked about that was a character study? If you're fan of Denzel wants him to do this word character I do. Yes the plot was sort of like all right you know but it's really fun to see him really go deep into a character like that. Yeah I liked it. I liked from one of my screeners because because he's not gonNa because the thing about that he's he still hasn't done the thing and maybe he never will. He's just in a movie. That's not his movie right like in like who who does that. A lot of people like Robert Deniro Will Robert Robert will be the dinsdale plays Frankenstein moment playing a monster and if he did a drag or he's never even done that likes Piatra do they like in an ensemble like you. John just like in Likley one there and three scenes of somebody's but he's a judge or something exactly like Samuel Jackson does that sometimes where he just sort of goes no but he's close he's come to that was the shakespeare nothing yeah and that was like yeah and now they're doing when they're he's doing macbeth with France and mcdormand. Where are they doing it on Broadway? Aw I thought I I got the Improv movie. It's mcbain was I thought it was the best man it's his shortest. Maybe it's maybe it's a play but it's it's definitely with Francis Cheeser to I saw that photo. Did you Fran mcdiarmid. Last time I saw on the street New York on Broadway. She was an A._T._M.. She came up and hugged me and said. Aren't we lucky. WHO's does that? uh-huh luckily so happy. Do you feel lucky yeah. I'll tell you right now. I just turned sixty three and I never thought that that I would be this active just career at this point in my life. I just figured it'd be winding down and you know that'll be that. No this like I feel like I've never been in more demand than I am right now. Can I can fly you though we talked about this like you or one of these cats that just stays were. I mean it was like cool kids. I don't think I've finished the article and then I saw a photo of you on Queen Sugar still had the beard. Hey man even he's like an N._B._A..

There's nobody sees you. Have that thing. Where nobody sees sees you as old if you got this white beard now and you bought head is ball but nobody's is that thing where certain black actors could Kinda just pretend to be thirty eight forever ever is true? I mean that's that's the energy behind the other reverse where certain black has been old since he was thirty yet has looked old. Samuel Jackson has always looked like an old man. Even when but I feel like Sam is at a point now where he yeah I don't really know how old he is but he's looks like he stopped aging yeah.

Its sort of awkward to tell the story with David here because it sounds like it's like <hes> like a weird. No it sounds like a weird like to you. It's humble brag because you know Denzel. It's not a big deal so anyway. I'm just GONNA put that disclaimer on it because I didn't want. I thought I tell them I didn't go. I'll tell it with someone who acted within onstage.

She's like she. I told him this and he stopped being it was like how you doing like just wanted to talk to her no he's. I'm telling you this part. I did not know about Denzel. There are a bunch of people out there that he has been responsible for sending the college amazing and she was like as soon as I told him that he say he didn't really care to do the interview he just wanted to talk about. Have you been where you've been up to. How's your life? I'll say he's so nice. It's like I'll introduce you. Are you gonNa tell did you tell him that he sent you to college. I would go to college pharmacist prescription. Dwayne Reed Square so she's like how go do it and so I'm really condensing.

He was being interviewed by Dr Boyd in whose first name but <HES> and after one of the guests on the podcast the day he was speaking was j August Richards and so he <hes> was like. Can I go with you. I'm like it was a fundraiser for for for <hes> the Annenberg Center I think in in <hes> Debbie Allen had put it together yeah and so he was he was basically speaking there and afterwards Jay basically snuck us into some <hes> reception that Denzel was sort of Hang Denzel and some some students some acting students at U._S._C. and <hes> it was nuts because the kids were were performing monologues for him but they weren't doing. They were like actually performing. He was queuing them up and so I I was like I don't know if I wanNA watch and then I realized no I'm watching Denzel do theater. He's doing an act ten feet in front of me like suggest down and watch and so he did that thing it was great and and Jane I left like wow I can't believe it was amazing and he he walks away goes to get his car and I was waiting for a lift and I walked around the back of the building and I do remember thinking be Kinda crazy. If I walked up behind the building and there was Denzel standing there and as I look up from my phone he's walking out and we ran into each other and it was Dr Boyd and I'm I'm sure it was there yet thank you. I'm ninety percent sure he was debbie. Allen who I didn't even it didn't register register because I couldn't believe I was looking at him until we chatted for a second and then he disappeared in the elevator and did you tell them about the podcast I mentioned it to indicate. I mean did cal eight zero. We're all ahead <hes> I think I think we had I think we 'CAUSE I. I've been once well one because I remember United 'cause you talked him like you have a podcast and you said W abell totally biased and that's how the brothers always talking about him yeah and that was because the podcast is we've been around for a minute but then that was that was the time I assure people told them about it. I I'm just glad that I'm just I was really happy that the bulk of the conversation was about him being a fan like if it if I had just been the podcast ah guy I would have been a little bit like Hammond microphone. Do you mind if I do a quick again. That's why you were there then. He Approves Tesla's yeah that is awesome. Yeah no it definitely was like and then to see all these other act and Isa rate went onstage and talked to see all these hurt Hollywood black Hollywood talking about all that he had done in the way that we talk about on the podcast on the down low. It wasn't <hes> that's the thing like ain't trying to put it up on a billboard or nothing. Oh man now. He's just going about the business of doing and I met people from the boys and girls clubs. He's big with them. They they were there to and you know he was you know I met <hes> as it with producers who had produced the movie the siege it was where my table <hes> yeah so it was just a lot of a a lot of people the guy one of the guys who was one of the guys the village voice was like it was people from his whole career and you really do. It's not just about the movie yeah yeah earlier that it's generations met that was thirty over thirty years ago. All of it packed work packed his work man and then the great thing was because I was like is he gonNa give you know because we talk podcast. He doesn't really care to give speeches. I mean sort of famously at the Golden Globes. He's like. I forgot got my eye glasses. <hes> he was he was trying to get the help him and she was like it's on you on your own but he actually gave one of those speeches like you see him give on Youtube every now and again when he shows up at like a some sort of local theater and he's is wearing a baseball cap and sweats and he goes you know <hes> look like uncle d. We'll be doing the show of the day speech but in a Tuxedo gave <hes> like you know very very like like you know and <music> owning his when he moved he was emotional about this teacher added A._C._T.. We've talked about before and they read his recommendation to A._C._T.. Or A._C._T.. To it was it was a recommendation to see yeah. It was maybe the reverend should get in. They see it. It's Julia Roberts read it and to me it was like you keep friendly keeps us letter or keeps a key lender in his wallet and it's like this teacher who from Fordham Yup had given him a recommendation. I'm David get into an acting program A._C._T.. And he said basically said this is a generational cat. Yeah talent and I truly believe that Mr Washington is going to go on to have <hes> you know historic historic legendary career in predicting it was very much like amazing. I don't know if you've seen I think he could play Malcolm X.. ONSTAGE also in screen yeah equalizer if you ever doing it with the black guy he I remember sitting there thinking my shit.

How much zoologist gone about to change in lives? Yeah Yeah Dr Yeah Barnacles. They won't all goodness out of this man built. This little barnacle boy Michael King it is true like the thing is certainly that's the thing I was very way of like looking actors most. Let's be on stage where act I guess they were all actors who were trying to who are actors the way he's an actor yeah but I really did feel like there's also people like me who are like. I'm not trying to be an actor. I'm not trying to be. I'm not trying to do anything like he did but it's still the same like I was a kid in a theater. I saw still storing a theatre yeah going. WHO's that guy I was? I remember like ten thousand GonNa Play Malcolm X.. You know what I mean like N._B._A.. Inspired by him and so then to end up like meeting him and he knows who I is a lot that's crazy yeah <unk> as crazy as what they call it to load. Wow yeah all right.
