Academy Award winner DENZEL WASHINGTON (Anthony "Hub"
Hubbard), who most recently starred in Spike Lee's "He
Got Game" and the supernatural suspense thriller "Fallen,"
has distinguished himself as one of the screen's most highly-regarded
actors. A native of Mt. Vernon, New York, and a graduate of Fordham
University and alumnus of the distinguished American Conservatory
Theater, Washington began his film career with a critically acclaimed
performance as the outspoken recruit in Norman Jewison' s "A
Soldier's Story," re-creating the role that he had originated
in the stage version "A Soldier's Play."
Washington followed that with roles in "Power," "Cry
Freedom" (which earned him an Oscar nomination for Best
Supporting Actor), "For Queen and Country," "The
Mighty Quinn," "Heart Condition" and his Academy
Award-winning performance in "Glory," his first collaboration
with director Edward Zwick. He starred for director Spike Lee
in "Mo' Better Blues" and "Malcolm X," which
eamed him yet another Academy Award nomination. His role in the
bittersweet comedy "Mississippi Masala" won him the
NAACP's Image Award for Best Actor.
Washington has also starred in "Much Ado About Nothing,"
"Philadelphia," "The Pelican Brief," "Crimson
Tide," "Virtuosity," "Devil in a Blue Dress,"
"Courage Under Fire," his second collaboration with
Zwick, and "The Preacher's Wife."
He recently expanded his list of accomplishments by serving as
executive producer on the TBS documentary "Hank Aaron: Chasing
the Dream," for which he received an Emmy nomination. Additionally,
Washington's narration of the legend of "John Henry"
was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award in the category of Best
Spoken Word Album for Children; he also received the 1996 NAACP
Image Award for his performance in the animated children's special
"Happily Ever After: Rumpelstiltskin."
Upcoming projects include "The Bone Collector," a thriller
directed by Phillip Noyce.
