The Great Debaters (2007)

Denzel Washington, who both starred in and directed this story about a Black college debate team in the '30s, cast Forest in the role of James Farmer Sr., the father of debater and future civil rights figure James Farmer Jr. The irony in this was the actor playing his son was named Denzel Whitaker.
