Arguments for:
- he’s a smooth sexy beast
- a multiple Oscar winner with a new movie released for awards season, this is the time for him and the studio, if they’re smart, to make a big push.
- Denzel is a solid box office earner. Money talks too
- family man, solid values, not a famewhore
- he has owned the crown once, the first and only black man to do so. Giving it to him again would be an unprecedented honour. And a great move.

Arguments against:

- he’s almost TOO low key, has been for a while
- persistent rumours of infidelity, most recently unproven allegations that he fathered Sanaa Lathan’s child.
- has owned the crown once already and Will Smith never has

Odds: 20 to 1
