When I think of Tom Robinson I think of Denzel Washington. I think that it is because that is what I picture him looking like in the book. They both are hard working men and it seems to me that in almost all of Denzel's movies he is the underdog. Tom is the underdog in his case. They never seem to be give up and Tom is going to fight and fight until they force him to stop which is just what Denzel's characters do in his movies.
