Denzel Washington appeared on CBS Sunday Morning to talk about his current run in The Iceman Cometh on Broadway, as well as his incredibly long and diverse career.

"I just do what I do," he says. "I don't analyze it, I don't overanalyze it, I try not to read about what people think I'm doing. It's not that precious to me. I'm just doing what I know how to do and what I love to do."
