In this episode, Marie and Mike consider the screen career of Will Smith. Audiences have admired his talent and his basic integrity for so long that he belongs on the same short list as such beloved actors as James Stewart and Tom Hanks. Following his early days as a rapper and also as the star of the TV series "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," Smith cemented his stardom in such box office hits of the 1990s as "Bad Boys," "Independence Day" and "Men in Black." Balancing mainstream commercial releases with more personalized projects such as "The Pursuit of Happyness" in the decades since then, Smith is one of the most consistently successful Hollywood actors of his generation. Add in his talented wife, Jada Pinkett, and their, yes, talented children Jaden and Willow, and this family has it all. However, that doesn't stop our podcast duo Marie and Mike from offering him some unsolicited career advice.
