Denzel Washington is delighted he's putting his film career on hold to star in the Broadway, New York, production of JULIUS CAESAR, because he's desperate to earn a smaller salary.

Washington recently complained he was ravaged by guilt when he picked up a $20 million (GBP11 million) pay check for starring in the movie Out of Time, insisting no person is worth that much money.

But now he's signed up to portray BRUTUS in the William Shakespeare play he's able to mentally travel back to a time when working for modest money on the legendary theatre strip was his ultimate ambition.

He says, "It was always my dream as a college actor to go to Broadway and make $600 (GBP333).

"Now it's probably $1,200 (GBP6,650), but it's still my dream."
