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.
Just this past weekend audiences saw Will Smith fight aliens in 3D and they won't have to wait long to see it again. Fox is converting the 1994 blockbuster 'Independence Day' to 3D and will be re-releasing the film in theaters. As Will Smith might say, "Aw, hell naw!"
Whenever President Obama's life story makes it to the big screen (and you know it will), Will Smith says he's the one who should play the Commander-in-Chief. And why does he think he'd be a perfect fit for the role? Because they both have the same ears.
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.
Being the son of Will Smith has its perks, like getting to tour the White House with President Obama, or summoning Alfonso Ribeiro to do "The Carlton" dance whenever you want. We're sure that second part is totally true and not at all some weird 'Fresh Prince' fantasy we have.
But the first part is true, and Jaden Smith -- young actor and son of Will -- had the chance to talk to Obama, so he asked him about the existence of aliens, obviously.
Will Smith may be a supporter of gay marriage, but that doesn't mean he wants to lock lips with random dudes -- something one reporter from the Ukraine learned the hard way when the star backhanded him on a red carpet.
