That Denzel Washington is one handsome man, isn't he? He's also an incredibly talented actor and director. Denzel was in the Big Apple last night for the east coast premiere of his new film "The Great Debaters" with other members of the young ensemble cast including Denzel Whitaker, son of actor/director Forest Whitaker and Jurnee Smollett. The film, set in 1935, tells the inspirational - and true - story of a group of African-American college students who form a debate team and compete against Harvard students. Denzel plays their professor and mentor. I wish I had professors who looked like that when I was in college - I may have actually gone to class!
