Kerry Washington Says Netflix Version of 'American Son' Honors The Play!

Kerry Washington paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday (November 11) and opened up about making Broadway play American Son into a film for Netflix.

“We didn’t change a single word,” the 42-year-old actress told Jimmy. “We really honored the play but we did take some visual liberties. We show flashbacks and cut-away – it’s really beautifully directed by Kenny Leon.”

Kerry Washington also talked about recreating episodes of All in the Family and Good Times for ABC’s Emmy-winning special Live in Front of a Studio Audience.

“You know what’s amazing too? How, for better or for worse, how relevant these shows still are,” Kerry said. “Like still so funny, still so meaningful. It’s really amazing.”

The Live in Front of a Studio Audience special will air on Wednesday, December 18 on ABC!
