Happy birthday today to Oscar and Tony winner, Denzel Washington. He's 62 today. His first major career break came when Washington starred as Dr. Phillip Chandler in NBC's television hospital drama St. Elsewhere, which ran from 1982 to 1988. Since then he's had a string of successful movies and has won two Oscars, one for Best Supporting Actor in Glory (1989) and one for Best Actor for the movie Training Day (2001).
He is currently starring in FENCES, which he also directed, with Viola Davis.
