Washington, Dec 23 : Actor Denzel Washington has decided to turn to directing as he fears his acting career is coming to an end.
The two time Academy award winning actor stars in and directs new movie The Great Debaters, his second stint behind the camera after 2002's Antwone Fisher.
And the 52-year-old reveals he was inspired to direct by both "curiosity" and his desire to keep working when no one else will cast him.
"I was getting a little bored just sitting in the trailer, waiting for my part. And looking down the line I'm thinking, there's gonna be a day maybe when they don't call as much," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
"Really, I'm surprised it took this long. It's just curiosity. Not wanting to settle. Wanting to learn something new," he added. (ANI)
