Tory Kittles, who plays Marcus Dante in “The Equalizer,” is frequently compared to Denzel Washington due to their remarkable similarities in facial features.

  • Tory Kittles and Denzel Washington are often compared due to their strikingly similar facial features and mannerisms.
  • Despite rumors and fan theories suggesting they might be related, Tory Kittles and Denzel Washington do not have a familial connection.

Similarly, the speculations took form on Reddit, where users debated which actor resembled the other more.

One of the users started the following thread,

“(Tory Kittles) look just like Denzel Washington? I mean mannerisms, walk, etc. it’s amazing, noticed that the first thing I saw him in. If they ever need someone to play a young Denzel, he’d be perfect IMHO.”

Tory Kittles and Denzel Washington share the screen in the movie in the first season of “The Equalizer” franchise. However, they were separately cast from the second season onwards.

On the other hand, Denzel Washington is specifically being searched regarding his departure from the thriller “Leave The World Behind,” which prevented a perfect 30-year reunion from happening in real-time.

Tory Kittles And Denzel Washington Are Unrelated Despite Their Striking Resemblance

Tory Kittles was born on August 2, 1975, in Lawtey, Florida.

On the other hand, Denzel Washington was born on December 28, 1954, in Mount Vernon, New York.

Moreover, Tory and Denzel share the same African American ethnicity but are not blood-related due to their distinct family trees.

Denzel Washington is married to Pauletta Pearson, and they have four children: John David, Katia, and the twins Olivia and Malcolm.

As the names and details of Denzel’s kids are openly revealed, this directly contradicts the speculation about Tory being Denzel’s son.

In addition, Tory’s mother was African-American, and although her name has not been revealed, she looks nothing like Pauletta Pearson.

Speculation about their relatedness was entirely based on their similar mannerisms, acting style, and outlook, which had nothing to do with their genetic connection and blood ties.
