Even Denzel Washington Can’t Remember All of His Lines

Denzel Washington is a busy man. Over the course of his 40-odd-year career, he’s starred in numerous film roles (in addition to a fair share of TV bits from his early days)—45 to be in fact. So it’s no surprise that several have turned out to be iconic in the larger cinemasphere. But as it turns out, not even Washington can remember every single line he’s uttered onscreen.

(But honestly, can you blame him?)

While Washington was on Jimmy Kimmel Live to promote FencesJimmy Kimmel did what he always does, eschewing the standard interview for a game called “Did I Say That?” The game forced Washington to watch clips of random people at LA’s Farmer’s Market as they repeated lines he may or may not have said on-screen.

Washington got off to a bad start when he completely forgot one of the key lines from his post apocalyptic drama, The Book of Eli. To throw Washington even further off of his game, he was given lines from Jurassic Park and the original version of The Magnificent Seven, too. However, the legend was never fooled enough to claim a line he never said. By far, one of the funniest moments came when a man completely bungled Washington’s famous “King Kong” line from Training Day. Let’s just say that word choice counts, and the line took on an entirely different meaning that made both Kimmel and Washington laugh.
