Recently on the red carpet for Denzel Washington‘s new film A Journal for Jordan, Washington was asked about Damon Idris, who has risen in fame due to his starring role in FX’s Snowfall and who is compared to Washington.

Unfortunately, Washington apparently did not know who the young actor was, but that didn’t stop Idris from responding in a funny way.

Two Bees TV asked Washington about Idris and how the young actor is compared to him.

Washington admits that he doesn’t know who Idris miss pronouncing his name as “Dancin Adress” but adding “no disrespect” and implying that he is going to find out real soon.

Damson recently posted a spot-on Denzel impersonation, and the iconic actor is clearly a source of inspiration for him.

Idris soon found out about the interview but took everything in stride, joking on Twitter, “Call me Dancin Address from now on. I won’t answer to anything else 😂”. he even changed his user name to Dancin Idris to celebrate the situation.

The actor is definitely an up-and-comer, carving out his own lane, and it seems like the actor is positioned to make some big moves due to his incredible performance in Snowfall.

A Journal for Jordan is directed by Denzel Washington and stars Michael B. Jordan. The film opens this Christmas.

Hopefully, Damson and Denzel will work together in the future, making everything come full circle.
