If there was ever any doubt that Denzel Washington is a real hip-hip head, he put that to rest during a Reddit AMA, where he had a few things to say on the subject.
The two-time Oscar winner took to Reddit Monday (September 8) ahead of his new movie, “The Equalizer,” to field fan questions and share three of his list of all-time favorite lyricists after he was asked if he liked Eminem.
“Eminem, yes,” Washington replied. “And I like Nas, and Jay-Z. Eminem and NAS are real wordsmiths. So yes, I'm DEFINITELY an Eminem fan. Where's he been? Where you been Eminem?”
Outside of releasing the new song, “Guts Over Fear,” which features highly on Washington’s new movie trailer and soundtrack, Eminem’s been on his mega-successful “Monster Tour” with Rihanna and setting new marks for most words used in a hit song for the "Guinness Book of World Records."
In addition to sharing his list of favorite rappers, the 59-year-old actor revealed that he would jump at the chance to play James Bond.
“The next James Bond? They better hurry up!” Washington said. “Yes I would! Who’s doing James Bond now ... Daniel Craig! Did they shoot another one? Everybody should tweet Denzel is James Bond! Send it to the studio! We start the Denzel is Bond campaign today! James Washington. Denzel Bond!”
“The Equalizer” hits theaters on September 26.
