enzel Washington has had a distinguished career since he started acting in the late 1970s. He’s been in just about every kind of movie you can imagine: rom-com, historical fiction, biopic, action, thriller, sci-fi, high drama, and Shakespeare. He’s won two Academy Awards and has been nominated for 166 other awards over the years. Going through his extensive filmography, I was surprised to find how many movies involved Washington using a firearm on screen. While he's done his share of straight up action movies, he often seems to wind up with a gun at some point no matter what kind of film it is. We’ve gathered them all here. Take a tour of this great actor’s career via the guns he’s used while in character.
