You know you’re doing something right when audiences start comparing you to Denzel Washington. But if anybody is worthy of the comparison, it’s Star Wars alum John Boyega. Boyega has been giving stellar performances since his breakthrough role in Attack on the Block. So, viewers were bound to see a bit of Washington in the Star Wars star. The film and TV actor heard the online comparisons and finally responded to them.

His performance in the thriller Breaking hasn’t squelched the similarities between the two actors as audiences have compared his performance to Denzel Washington’s performance in 2002’s John Q. The comparison began making so much noise that “John is Denzel” began trending online. While John Boyega has been aware of the online banter, he downplayed fans seeing him as the two-time Oscar winner’s successor. Boyega mentioned to Yahoo! that he doesn’t necessarily believe he’s gotten there just yet. In his words:
