Personal Quote:

[on Flight (2012)] If it ain't on the page, it ain't on the stage. I read tons of scripts, and I know it's very rare, but this is like a Eugene O'Neil play - the tears are on the page. See more »

Trivia:

Denzel is named after his father who was in turn named after the doctor, Doctor Denzel, who had delivered him. See more »

Trademark:

In almost all the films - e.g. Man on Fire (2004), American Gangster (2007), John Q (2002) - where he handles or uses sidearms (usually a 9mm Beretta or similar pistols), there's a scene of him swiftly ejecting a bullet from the loaded chamber by pulling back the slide assembly and subsequently catching the bullet before it falls to the ground.
