denzelwill Last week Denzel Washington told MTV that he is working alongside Will Smith to star in a comedy. Apparently, the two will be the lead, which 100% equals box office mega-billions. Washington, who is a two-time Oscar winner has done very little comedy in his epic career. Washington revealed that he tried some improvisation in London and it was successful -- now that I would've loved to have seen!

Times they are changing - I can remember just a few years ago Black actors saying it's rare you will have two lead Black actors in one movie -- the belief is they will need one White actor for the movie to sell (think John Travolta in Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 , Dakota Fanning in The Secret Life of Bees , etc.). Ever wondered why you've never seen Halle and Denzel in a movie? Will Smith and Queen Latifah ? So, to hear about this coming up is huge progress for Hollywood. Watch the video below to see what Washington said to MTV’s Josh Horowitz.
