Internet Realizes Ballers Star Is Denzel Washington's Very Attractive Son, Freaks Out: 'Look at What God Did'
That’s right: Washington’s 31-year-old son, John David Washington, is one of the main characters (named Ricky Jerret) on HBO’s freshman comedy, which wrapped its first season in late August.
But because time has no meaning on the Internet, it looks like it’s taken everyone a little while to catch on as John David has quickly become the talk of Twitter and Instagram this week.
John David, a Morehouse College graduate, has a tailor-made background for the series. He played briefly in the NFL, for the St. Louis Rams in the 2006-07 season, and appeared in Malcolm X, as well as co-producing his dad’s 2010 film “The Book of Eli.
And then of course there are those Washington genes.
