Will Smith Explains Why He Passed On ‘Django Unchained’

Back when Quentin Tarantino was sprinting through the casting process on his upcoming ‘Django Unchained,’ an unconventional name was attached to the lead role of a vengeful slave seeking to free his wife from a vicious plantation owner. That name was Will Smith, Mr. “Getting Jiggy With It,” who was rumored to be willing to tarnish his clean-cut image to get down and dirty with Tarantino for the benefit of a potentially controversial project. Smith eventually passed, though, and the part went to Jamie Foxx.

Today, Smith explains why.

‘Men in Black 3′ Review

Men in Black 3

Long before Will Smith uses a sci-fi doohickey to travel back to 1969, time already seems out of whack in 'Men in Black 3.' The film supposedly takes place in 2012, 14 years after Agent K (Tommy Lee Jones) first recruited Agent J (Smith) into the secret order of the world's well-dressed space cops. But the film looks like it takes place in 1997, from the creature and set design, right down to the wildly dated 'Jerry Maguire' jokes. In other words, 'Men in Black 3' has been brewing for a long time -- but very little of it feels ready for public consumption, even after all those years of development.
