AN EQUALIZER THAT LAKERS FAN DENZEL WASHINGTON IS SUPEREXCITED ABOUT? LEBRON JAMES

t’s the unexpected that Denzel Washington looks for — in his illustrious career and in his choice of a professional basketball team. In both cases, he wants a win. But he likes knowing that he’s in for a fun surprise either way.

Washington, the 63-year-old, two-time Oscar winner who, quite frankly, is one of the best and most consistent actors of all time, is back with revenge fantasy Equalizer 2. His Robert McCall is a retired CIA special ops agent who, as one critic wrote, “believes in justice, likes to help others, and dispenses the occasional lethal killing for those deserving.”

Washington is excited about this film, which is a remake of the ’80s television series of the same name that starred Edward Woodward. Washington’s first go at the project was in 2014, and fans have been begging Sony for this sequel. Washington delivers, and then some.

But Washington is … let’s call him humble. He walks into a room — in this case, a suite in a Beverly Hills hotel — and his familiar suburban New York-inflected vocals fill the space. It’s reasonable to assume that Washington doesn’t make much of his own star presence. Surely, he understands he’s “Denzel Washington,” but does he truly see himself the way his fans do? That’s to be determined.

“I said, ‘We still got our tickets, right? I didn’t sell the season tickets, did I? Of all years, not this year.’ ”

“We did good. It’s a … relief,” he said, at the thought that he pulled off a film sequel. “You don’t know. You have all these ideas and you put all these people together, you spend all this money, and it could still not work, but it does work. It’s a testament to [director] Antoine Fuqua.”
