5. Denzel Washington
Say you don’t think Denzel is fine in the wrong company. Those might be fightin’ words. I grew up with an appreciation for Denzel’s appeal that was mainly handed down from the older women in my life. But now that I’m grown and can assess him in light of my adult tastes, I can say without shame or fear that he’s not my cup of tea–especially not after this recent spate of middle-aged “bad boy” roles. But I’m not counting him out. If this rumored Uptown Saturday Night remake he’s attached to is a go, I might fall for him anew upon getting to see him laugh and loosen up for two hours.
