For four seasons on CBS beginning in 1985, Edward Woodward played Robert McCall, who was kind of like a smoother, classier, one-man A-TEAM on THE EQUALIZER.
I loved it.
Russell Crowe was attached in 2010 to a big-screen adaptation that never happened (which is a shame, because he’d have been perfect for it), but another version finally got made with Denzel Washington (which is fine, because he’ll be perfect for it).
Here’s the trailer, in which Denzel dispenses justice to some nasty bastards who’ve got it coming (including one played by JUSTIFIED’s Johnny Crowder, David Meunier). What else do you need? It opens September 26.
