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.
