Derek Luke: Antwone Fisher

Derek Luke’s breakout film debut as Antwone Fisher, a navy man with a troubled past, was an amazing introduction to a young actor with tremendous depth. With a few exceptions (Catch a Fire, Lions for Lambs, Friday Night Lights), Hollywood’s offering of roles to Luke since Denzel Washington’s directorial debut hasn’t completely lived up to his dynamic promise. But Luke’s Oscar-worthy performance in Fisher is a reminder of what he can do with leading-man material. (Photo: Jason Merritt/Getty Images)
