The 35-year-old also said that Washington is one of the most disciplined actors he has ever worked with.

"You learn so much from working with a guy like him. Not only is he a pleasure to work with and to see that somebody can be so passionate when he's been doing it for so long, but you see the kind of discipline that he brings," Contactmusic quoted him as telling CBS News.

"I don't think I've ever seen before. It's just in his DNA," he added. The 'Green Lantern' hunk stars as Matt Weston in the movie, which sees his alter-ego tag along with Tobin Frost portrayed by Denzel when he goes on the run after his CIA-operated safe house, is attacked in South Africa.
