Daniel Wymbs: Denzel is not so cool in my opinion.
Flo McSweeney (actress): will pick the actors I like / admire. William Dafoe … De Niro… Pacino…. Denzel.
Ferdia McAnna (writer): Denzel was great in man on fire.
Stuart Dunne (actor): De Niro, Di Caprio, Cage, Crowe, Washington, they would give me some thing to think of, and their interpretation of their roles.
June Rogers (comedian): I don’t really know any of those guys.
Erin Feeney (actress): Denzel is a pro and very, very cranky. He’s not humourless but he can be extremely moody. Great actor though – He sucks the energy right out.
