Misha: I played a Serb on 24 for several episodes and the producers of the show came in to talk to me, like 5 episodes in. Denzel Washington had just won an Oscar and they said, 'isn't it great that minorities are finally getting recognition at the Oscars? It's great for people like you and for Denzel Washington.' I said, 'I'm sorry but I don't think I qualify. I'm a white guy from Massachusetts'.
