Denzel Washington as Master Chief?

Is Denzel Washington going sci-fi? Some sites are reporting that the Oscar winner is in talks for the role of Master Chief in the upcoming movie based on Microsoft’s “Halo” video game series. The Associated Press recently reported that Washington has been talking with Peter Jackson, the movie’s executive producer, about working together on a film that Washington wants to direct.

Coming attraction?

To get you in the mood for Denzel-as-Master-Chief, here are some quotes from “Training Day” that could be recycled for “Halo:”

“Somebody drop this fool for me.”

“You ain’t never killed nobody before have ya? It ain’t like steppin’ on ants, Jake. Takes a man to kill, you man enough to kill, Jake?”

“To protect the sheep you gotta catch the wolf, and it takes a wolf to catch a wolf.”

“Sometimes you gotta have a little dirt on you for anybody to trust you.”

“Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. Look at that. Sexy ain’t it?”
