Denzel has been in my opinion the best actor of this era. He adds the little things that really sell his character. Examples: In the movie "JOHN Q." he fumbled the gun and on the DVD Denzel said he did that because he wanted the audience to know his character was not a professional gun handler. I saw it again during "Flight", when he stumbled slightly boarding the plane to let you know he was still a bit tipsy. Phenomenal actor, only Anthony Hopkins and Sean Connery. This of course is my humble opinion.
