I have never heard Forest Whitaker in an interview before. (SORRY MR WHITAKER) He blew my mind in how polar opposite he is compared to his films. He seems so shy and soft spoken. In his movies he's more animated. WOW….. That's acting. I didn't really appreciate his stuff, but that just changed!!
I'm going to binge watch his films now! Truly!! Thank you for this interview Jimmy!

Bumpy? That reminds me…

We had a manager at the convenience store who had a huge lump on his head, and we called him 'Lumpy'.
That is, until his brother came to a staff xmas party, and told us that it started as a 'calcium deposit' that he thought he'd fix by whamming it with a hammer when he was 15… which made it grow about 5 times bigger.

From that day on, he was known as 'Hammerhead'. We never did tell him why, and he convinced himself it was a "cool nickname.. like a shark!".. because his staff respected him so much.

Poor ol' Hammerhead.

I’m trying to see him and Keanu reaves in a new movie together

Looking at Forest Whittaker in both eyes is like having single iningual hernia instead of a bilateral hernia. You never know what you are going to get.

For some reason I always remember his performance in ER. Idk if anyone remembers that show, but man for the couple of episodes he was on, it was intense.

Cortney · October 8, 2019 at 10:45 am

…why did he ask him about Sean Penn? Is he in the show? Like, why transition to talking about someone so random?

Maven Frankeus · October 8, 2019 at 10:57 am

Classy actor. The moment when he screamed to Keanu Reeves to tear down the wall in his living room…

Leandros Amarantidis · October 8, 2019 at 12:12 pm

He got old fast ?

FunkyDoolittle · October 8, 2019 at 1:38 pm

Forest is very underrated and in my opinion in the same league as Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman…

Tharuka Jayasinghe · October 8, 2019 at 1:40 pm

One of the best in Hollywood💪

P. A. · October 8, 2019 at 1:49 pm

Jesse King · October 8, 2019 at 2:05 pm

Omar benson miller twins? son ?

Ed Turner · October 8, 2019 at 5:25 pm

I watched the 1st 2 episodes. Good stuff, great cast, nice period piece, great music combining original r and b with rap. Some much good stuff wrapped in one. This really helps with GOT withdrawals.

Matt Payne · October 8, 2019 at 5:45 pm

Forest is the man in Arrival… Hahaha!!!

Walter Lopez · October 8, 2019 at 9:54 pm

Whatever happened to that movie with Him and Johnny Depp??

Nelson Gonzalez · October 8, 2019 at 10:00 pm

Really loved this interview. I didn’t realise how softly spoken he was. Would love to hear more from Forest Whitaker.

xitwound1 · October 9, 2019 at 12:50 am

It’s funny how people try and explain a gangster in a positive light. 🤦🏽‍♂️

C Fields · October 9, 2019 at 12:57 am

Had to like him in Good Morning Viet Nam with Robin Williams.

Keenan Thomas · October 9, 2019 at 1:11 am

Forest is not actor who talks softly and carries a big acting stick.

Draco lord · October 9, 2019 at 2:14 am

Wow. For once a serious interview with a great actor. Despite Jimmy's attempts.

Abubaker Sinada · October 9, 2019 at 4:08 am

He is really great but underrated actor, he looks genuinely down to earth person

Justin Credible · October 9, 2019 at 4:13 am

I rarely see Forest Whitaker doing interviews, i had to search on youtube. The guy is my childhood actor, a legend. I miss him. Where did he go?

Victor Chaz · October 9, 2019 at 8:13 pm

Forest is NOT underrated so y'all can cut that out. Forest is an outstanding artist and phenomenal talent, phenomenal. I started watching his new show over the weekend and I literally was instantly hooked!

John Sterling · October 9, 2019 at 10:40 pm

Forest Whitaker is one of my favorite actors. I wish he was in more movies.
