    Yea, The Matrix would've been corny with Will Smith.

    If you think about it, if they would've had Will Smith and Lawrence Fishborne, its a whole different movie. Heavy racial undertones.

    He said Val Kilmer would've been Morpheus if he played Neo.
    Would've been a completely different movie

    i think will could have done it.. but keanu was perfect for it.. need the spacey-ness that keanu can pull off at times plus the seriousness

    They should've asked Big Willie why he didn't turn down the unnecessary Aladdin remake. :smh:

    CGIed Fresh Prince/Genie looking like cheeks. :sick:

    It already kind of did though. All the agents and bad guys work clean cut white men while the people of Zion and resistance was a diverse group.

    You're right though that a lot more people would have picked up on it if the main character was.

    The bright side is that he got to miss those two god-awful sequels.

    Hopefully Bad Boys 3 can break his spell of bad movie pics.
    Also kinda think he comfortable with being in the mediocre tier and not having the pressure of being #1

    Will is a youtube/social media celeb now too so I don't doubt anything he does will pop, even Aladdin.

    After Earth?

    That movie woulda been a success if it was a regular Will and Son movie with them as regular humans hiking thru the wilderness.

    Ive never seen After Earth btw
