  • And she wrote down, she said, this boy is going to speak to millions of people.
  • I don't talk about that a lot, but I've kind of felt like, well, maybe I have some job to do.
  • Remember the woman I told you about the prophecy?
  • That was 30 years, that will be 30 years ago next week.
  • And then I started acting that fall.
  • So it's kind of interesting coming back now, 30 years later, about 20 blocks from where I started.
  • Romans!
  • Countrymen!
  • And lovers!

  • He plays Brutus, one of the leaders of a plot to kill Caesar.
  • Not that I love Caesar less,
  • But that I love Rome more!
  • Why did you decide to do this play now?
  • I thought it was a great opportunity to get back on the stage, to get back to my roots.

  • We didn't think about going to Hollywood.
  • That was, Hollywood, you didn't do that.
  • But he did.

  • Two?
  • Two.
  • Ninety-nine.
  • Ninety-nine, yeah.
  • OK.
  • I mean, that's a lot of work.
  • Is it?
  • I mean, work is like, you know, Garbage Man is work.

  • His father, Denzel Sr., was a Pentecostal preacher who held down two other jobs.
  • Denzel went to church every Sunday but dreamed of becoming a professional athlete.
  • He spent all of his free time here at what was then the Boys Club.
  • This was an important place for you.
  • Yep.
  • I lived here.
  • My mother would have to come get me.
  • So you had a time when you had to come home?
  • Nine o'clock, man.
  • I had a time.
  • I knew I had to get to the fish market by 854 and by the chicken joint by 856 in order to make it home by nine o'clock.

  • How did you end up here?
  • I was in a public school, Mount Vernon High School.
  • And my mother decided it was best to get me out of there before I ended up where a lot of my friends are now.
  • You know, in the grave, in the penitentiary.
  • How were you up here?
  • I mean, were you a bad kid?
  • No.
  • No.
  • Angrier as time went along.
  • What were you angry about?
  • Come on, let's take a walk in here.
  • Right about here was a chair.
  • And I was sitting in the mess hall, whatever we called it.
  • And they told me, your mother's here.
  • And I said, my mother's here?

  • In many ways.
  • The story will continue after this.
  • Denzel made the most of that second chance, building a career that has brought him riches, fame, and critical acclaim.
  • So, why would an actor who makes millions for one movie risk his reputation by taking a role that pays $1,700 a week?
  • What do you get out of it?
  • I mean, when you go through this performance eight times a week.
  • It's like retooling.
  • The lights come up, or the curtain goes up, and it's an actor's medium on stage.
  • And, you know, it's flying by the seat of your pants.
  • You got to keep going.
  • It's live.
  • Things happen.
  • We're still going through things.
  • Things fall.
  • Lights don't work.
  • You forget lines, or whatever happens.
  • And that's good.
  • That's good exercise.
  • Cell phones go off.

  • We do have leaders in the world that think they're gods.
  • I mean, and it's not just governments.
  • It's corporations.
  • Unfortunately, not a lot has changed.
  • I think it's a part of the human condition.
  • Julius Caesar opened two weeks ago to mixed reviews.
  • But Denzel says reviews don't affect him because he doesn't read them.
  • Anyway, the show is nearly sold out for his scheduled 112 performances that will run until June, performances that give him something he doesn't get in Hollywood.
  • How do you feel at the end of a performance?
  • I mean, this is not an easy role.
  • Thankful.
  • You know, I run offstage, I wipe the makeup off, I say a quick prayer.
  • I hear the people out there clapping.
  • You get a sense, like, uh-oh, is it two bows tonight?
  • Is it one?
  • Is it three?
  • You know, but a relief, you know, joy.
  • You don't get that in the movies, making movies.
  • All the feelings I'm getting night after night, I mean, people are like, man, you got 100 to go.
  • But I'm like, yeah, I'm enjoying every one of them.
