Denzel Washington is the go-to man when you're searching for a Blockbuster hit. The 57-year-old heartthrob is marking the arrival of another cinematic masterpiece with his latest film Flight, taking on the role of pilot Whip Whitaker. In the film, released earlier this month, Denzel plays an airline pilot who saves a flight from crashing, but an investigation into the malfunction reveals something troubling.
Denzel admits that the role was a troubling one for him, but he also revealed there's one name he won't be playing anytime soon - President Barack Obama.
Denzel has some pretty sound reasoning for denying the role, but he also brought us to the realization that there needs to be a younger black actor stepping up to follow his lead!
