I got a kick out of hearing Denzel say he felt he was BEST for the director’s job… so he HIRED HIMSELF! (((Like a true BOSS!!! )))
You know what I mean??? Yeah!!!!! 👍🏽🎬
If you got it like that… You got it like that... and When you’re HOT… you’re HOT! 🔥
Denzel Washington has YEARS of experience… and the confidence and respect of a lot of folks in this entertainment industry …
He -knew- the characters inside and out… performing in the production on Broadway…so by all means he deserved this opportunity! It’s mighty nice to be in a position to afford you these kind of opportunities.

*** Wow…….. What NOW??? ***
Stephen Henderson..plays the role of Troys Best friend, (Jim Bono), in such a warm… and admirable fashion. A very realistic portrayal of “that guy…” every man deserves to have around…to watch his back… talk trash around… share a sip or two… and. Lot of good stories and laughter.
Mykelti Williamson plays Gabriel Maxson... Troys Brother. His performance will leave you speechless at times… and take your emotions through highs… and gut wrenching lows…. (whoa…)
The Cast spoke about some miraculous things that happened while filming in Pittsburgh…
The youngest of the ensemble … Little Miss Sinyya Sidney is pretty sure the heavenly presence of the late author/playwright–who wrote this production… August Wilson was with them in “spirit”
