Denzel Washington Says He Didn't Watch the Original Equalizer TV Show
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.17.2014



Denzel Washington spoke with IGN about his starring role in The Equalizer, which hits theaters on September 26th. Check out the highlights:

On the original TV series: "I actually didn't look at the original. Well, maybe I did. When did it come on, in the '80s? Yeah, I remember it, but I don't remember watching it. British guy, I remember that. Dressed well, snappy dressing. But I didn't look at it leading up to this, in preparation for this. As a kid, I remember the Jaguar and the nice clothes. But I think at the heart of it it was always because he was helping other people," said Fuqua during an impromptu on-set chat with the press. "I think if you were a fan of the show, a true fan of the show, you were a fan because of his actions, not because of the car. Like I said, it wasn't something I ran to see. What I remember was that he always helped others and he had a really cool car. But in this obviously you don't see the car, but you see him do some pretty amazing things that that Equalizer didn't do, as far as his skills."

On his version of the character: "He's a guy that doesn't carry guns or things like that. That's a part of his past. He has 'em, you'll see that, but he would prefer not to use them. So you'll see more hand-to-hand combat, but also more improvised violence."

On McCall's OCD: "I read a book called I Never Wash My Hands -- yeah, it's an interesting title. It talks about, 'obsession' is a big word. You can be obsessed with a lot of things. It's just that, OCD seems that people know certain things; people count or wash their hands or things like that. You could be obsessed with microphones or phones or chairs. I don't know what makes it happen, but it's just obsessive behavior.... I think it's the fear. You fear something, so you try to handle it. I don't know if 'control' is the word for it."
