Everybody’s heard of Alonzo Harris. The I don’t give a f*ck, drug using, bottle poppin’, foul mouthed, trigger happy, no good detective in the movie “Training Day.” A wolf in sheep’s clothing, Alonzo Harris is probably one of the greatest characters to ever grace the big screen. Naturally, when you have such a powerful character, you need to find an actor that is just as powerful. *enters Denzel Washington* Hey boo. *waves* It’s been about 15 years since we first met Alonzo, and thanks to the people over at CBS, we’ll meet again very soon.
According to Variety, CBS is producing a TV pilot based on the movie. The original “Training Day” movie director Antoine Fuqua is behind the television series, attached as director and executive producer.
Well would you look at THAT?
I just have one question…WHO COULD POSSIBLY TAKE DENZEL’S PLACE?
Nobody. That’s who.
But if I had to make some suggestions…here’s who I got:
Although we usually think of him as the funny guy, we’ve seen Jamie play “bad” before. Let’s not forget “Bait.”
Don’t believe me? Watch a clip of the movie “Gun Hill”
If you’ve seen him in ANYTHING, this is self explanatory.
Can’t nobody play crazy like Columbus Short…although I’m 98.9% sure he ain’t playin’. I could totally see him in this role. And he should definitely use the creepy voice he used when he was on “Scandal.”
Now THIS is what you call a thespian! He can basically be whoever, whenever. And I KNOW y’all saw him in the “King of Scotland.” Certified cray.
What do you guys think? Who should they choose to fill Denzel’s shoes?
