Denzel Washington has been in the entertainment biz since the 1970s — we fondly recall his run as Dr. Philip Chandler on “St. Elsewhere” back in the ’80s — but most astounding, more than 30 years later, he’s still on top. So in honor of his latest film, “Equalizer,” which premieres on Sept. 26, 2014, we present 10 reasons that we think he’s great. So, please, keep clicking …
No. 10: We appreciate Denzel Washington‘s talent even more because he could have ended up on a different path. He explained it to Parade in 1999: “When I was 14, my mother sent me away to private school in upstate New York, and that decision changed my life,” he said. “Because I wouldn’t have survived in the direction I was going. The guys I was hanging out with at the time, my running buddies, have now done maybe 40 years combined in the penitentiary.”
