King Kong still got nothing on Denzel.
Denzel Washington is one of the greatest actors of all time. Although he deserves a mountain of Oscars for roles in movies such as Man on Fire, Malcolm X, and The Hurricane, it was his depiction of the crooked cop Alonzo Harris in Training Day that earned him his Academy Award. Training Day features amazing quotables and brilliant quest appearances (who can forget the wheel-chaired bound Snoop Dogg) but one quote stands tall above others. "King Kong ain't got shit on me."
Denzel graced TNT’s Inside the NBA on Monday night, and Shaquille O’Neal, who is one of the hosts of the show, asked if he could reenact his most famous quote. "Denzel, before you leave can you hit us off with that 'King Kong' line?"
Without a moment of hesitation, Denzel dives right into the classic Harris character. "I’m putting cases on all you," starts Denzel before asking if he could curse. After Shaq gives him the no go, Denzel continues on with an edited version of the rant as the hosts break down in laughter. “You’ll be playing basketball in Pelican Bay when I get through. SHU Program. 23-hour lockdown! You think you can do this to me? Shaq, you think you can do this to me!?"
