Denzel Washington 

Eleven years after playing Malcolm X in the off-Broadway play When the Chickens Come Home to Roost, Denzel was again cast as the fiery Black nationalist leader. His stunning performance earned him an Oscar nod for best actor. While he didn't win, he'd snatch the honor in 2001 for the lead role in Training Day. And there's word his latest role in the hit film Flight is Academy Award-worthy.
