Who doesn't remember the Harlem speech in Malcolm X where Denzel says,
Oh, I say and I say it again, ya been had! Ya been took! Ya been hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led astray! Run amok!
Of course, Denzel didn't win the Oscar for his powerful role in Malcolm X. Instead he was honored for one of his most evil characters from movie called 'Training Day'.
In recent years Denzel began to direct as well as act. One of my favorite Denzel movies of all time is 'The Great Debaters'.
