Actor and comedian Baron Vaughn joins Kevin and newly-returned Kamau this week to discuss Denzel’s recent film “Fences.” They chat about the best way to deal with recording snafus and swap Denzel Top Fives before diving into a discussion on the film, noting the changes from stage to screen and praising Viola Davis’s powerhouse performance. All this and more before “Fences” receives an official Denzel rating.

Until seeing this movie last night, I didn't realize that Fences was almost a word-per-word, scene-for-scene recreation of the play. It feels like a play onscreen, dialogue heavy, nothing left unsaid. Normally this wouldn't work for me, but the acting (what else?) kept me engaged. I couldn't get over the feeling that Mykelti Williamson was being typecast, though.
