Denzel Washington opposite Viola Davis in August Wilson’s classic: Fences

“Oh Denzel.” This is how most women will respond to the mention of his name. Admittedly, he is the Paul Newman of our time. Attractive and confidant, a man’s man. Always playing the strong guy, never a supporting character.

Denzel Washington is one of the most prolific actors of our time, falling just short of Sam Jackson in the ‘He was in THAT movie too?!?” category. Having had success both in front of and behind the camera, audiences are still warming up to Mr. Washington’s live performaces. [this doesn’t include acceptance speeches]

“Oh…Denzel.” This seems to be how critics are responding to his most recent foray into theater. There is, of course, the challenge of being the second, in a short line led by James Earl Jones, to play August Wilson’s Troy Maxon. But there is also, Denzel…who is always…Denzel. [See “They tried to kill my wife” –American Gangster]

I like him. I like the play. I have read it a few times. It’ll be interesting to see how Denzel reads it this summer. Count me in.

Read the full review from our friends at the NY Times.
