Tony winner and two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington celebrates his birthday December 28.

Washington first appeared in the New York Shakespeare Festival production of Coriolanus in 1979, beginning a 4 decade career on the stage. In the time since, Washington has starred in A Raisin in the Sun, Julius Caesar, Checkmate, and more. He won the Tony Award for his performance as Troy Maxson in August Wilson’s Fences, a role he reprised for the 2016 film adaptation.

Washington was last seen on Broadway as Hickey in a revival of Eugene O'Neill's four-act epic The Iceman Cometh. Five-time Tony winner George C.
