Denzel Washington's latest film, 2 Guns, hits theaters nationwide today. It promises scenes featuring this serious man strutting around town stealing and shooting and blowing things up alongside Marky Mark. In celebration of the movie, we make an obligatory toast to Mr. Washington — with his piercing gaze, light scruff, confident demeanor, and wry smile. (Is that a smile? Or judging your soul?) If you'd like a nice soundtrack to decipher the photo above, click here. Denzel's collection of laughs — from crazed and tinny to deep and rumbling — might also make you question your existence. And then fall even deeper into the spell of his acting skills.
