During a recent appearance on the The Queen Latifah Show to promote his new film The Equalizer, Washington recalled visiting a recording studio where Lenny Kravitz and Jay Z were working on music together.

“We were musical talents even back then,” the actor said. “We played The Beatles. We went out and got some wigs and some $2 guitars, and acted like we were the Beatles and won a talent show.”

The Equalizer, which reunites Washington with Training Day director Antoine Fuqua, is on course for an impressive North American debut in the $36 million-plus range, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie’s soundtrack features the Eminem and Sia song "Guts Over Fear.”
