Some suggestions for you :

When I was a teenager, I began to settle into school because I'd discovered the extracurricular activities that interested me: music and theater.

I'm not one for blaspheming, but that one made me laugh.

I like the character roles. Somewhere back there I really came to the conclusion in my mind that the difference between acting and stardom was major. And that if you become a star, people are going to go to see you. If you remain an actor, they're going to go and see the story you're in.

I am going to stop calling you a white man and I'm going to ask you to stop calling me a black man.

Not only do I have to live, right, I have to get some cash for my troubles - it's a scary thing, and people need to start to think about the messages that they send in the movies.

Was I always going to be here? No I was not. I was going to be homeless at one time, a taxi driver, truck driver, or any kind of job that would get me a crust of bread. You never know what's going to happen.

I've been living with myself all of my life, so I know all of me. So when I watch me, all I see is me. It's boring.

Black history is American history.

Most of the time it's the role. Sometimes it's the story and sometimes it just the paycheck. It's the little movies that come out as stories or the fact that I have work to go out, you know what I'm saying, you can only be out so long without work, you start getting antsy.

I do know there are a lot of people who seem to be in my corner, and that's, of course, wonderful. I'm really more interested in the nomination than in the award, because I think the nomination just puts you within a group of outstanding actors.

I can only be so long without work before I start getting antsy.

You're going to relegate my history to a month.

I don't know what my favorite film of mine is... But I think the most important film I was in was 'Glory'.

Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered as our prince of peace, of civil rights. We owe him something major that will keep his memory alive.
