    Denzel. Hands down. please. Hands down. And not just Black either. imo he went ahead and surpassed Bobby D after he did X.
    I like Larry a lot too, though. While others will insist he's not dynamic enough, I saw him in King of New York. The brother is cold. But he's not as talented as Washington. I also don't think he is as selecive as Denzel when it comes to the roles he takes. And lately, he seems to be basically the same guy in all his movies. I personally can't appreciate the two flicks with him being involved with them othas either. Not cool. Also, when in character he doesn't seem to adapt as well as Washington.

    Although I am so attracted to Omar Epps. My pick is the one the only Denzel. Some people say he shouldn't have won the Oscar for Training Day, bs. He straight flipped the script on our ***.
