Denzel Washington playing Malcolm X: 

As sad as it was, most Generation Xers had not even heard of Malcolm X before Denzel and director Spike Lee brought the martyred militant legend to the big screen with searing force and uncanny acting abilities. Denzel also earned a Best Actor nod for this 1992 film.
