  1. Don't get me wrong I like Will Smith to the point where I almost love him as an actor but Keanu Reeves is way better and has more physical skills. He is considered a martial artist now and he can use a s*** ton of guns and is trained professionally on how to use every gun and almost every move that he does in all John Wick films he never needed a stunt actor yeah unfortunately Will Smith is getting his ass kicked by a CGI character.

  2. It”s weird seeing Will analyzes a crowd knowing he’s a Scientologist. Love him still, which is a first for those discoveries for me

  3. Will Smith is hilarious… I watched the whole interview at the gym with the sound off and captions on and I was still dying laughing 🤣

  4. Will, I love you man and you're one of my favorite actors, and you probably would have done a good job so I'm not saying you would have ruined it…but The first Matrix movie was solid as hell and I don't think I'd wanna change the cast.

    Plus you're too animated. Keanu does stiff/emotionless better than you tbh and I think that worked well. Again, not that you can't do it, but I feel like wooden will smith isn't a will smith I wanna see

    Also, you're ass is gonna cancel wild wild west and not after earth? Pshhh.

  5. It was a freaking pleasure to experience that jump with you Will. Still can't believe you said yes to our challenge XD!

  6. Trust me, skydiving from a heli is MUCH batter because everything goes quiet as you reach the roto wash airspeed and then start accelerating to TV before you have to pull the string. Much better feel of acceleration than bungee.

  7. I don't know… Wild wild west was quite cool… I think it's one of those stepping stone movies he had to make to get to where he is now.

  8. He's right about Wild Wild West, unfortunately. If they'd made it better he would have been delightful, but as it is, it's so bad that I even hear Steampunks at conventions mention it and sigh as they think of how close they came to a blockbuster film in their aesthetic. So basically if Will and Keanu had swapped films, everything would have matched in quality except for Kevin Kline, who should have run for his life.

  9. If no one has mentioned it already, I think Stephen Colbert will go down in history as thee best late night talk show host ever. (Sorry Johnny Carson)

  10. I do not believe Will Smith would have been a good Neo. He just doesn't have that darkness plus haven't you noticed they always give Smith an "accent" to make him sound MORE black in all his films? No, thank you.

  11. I hope one day I’ll be able to meet Will
    Have been a fan ever since I was 8
    Love you Fresh Prince ❤️

  12. I remember Wild Wild West and for me, you did the right role at the time, your hip hopped it good! you even had Stevie Wonder singing in it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zXKtfKnfT8

  13. I will own Gemini Man! Oh, yes, I will! I know some really liked Wild Wild West. It was different. And the theme song totally Rocked!! Love MiB and I Robot! And Independence Day!

  14. i've been a fan of his since well shit since i think (1990) but i go back even further than that cause i still love jamming to Jazzy Jeff And The Fresh Prince. true he hasn't been known as that for over 25 years or around that time or so. but i never Minded Wild Wild West it's not a great film by any means but he's done far worse films. i also think his wife is a pretty solid actress too but it's a damn shame his kids have no fucking talent and as for him Bungee Jumping he's fucking nuts

  15. I thought the picture of Will would be when he went bungee jumping and they took a picture of his face and he looked like Uncle Phil.

  16. Will Smith is the only star that I don't get tired of watching. The things that he brings in the moment takes me to a fun roller coaster ride. Awesome guy!

  17. Good thing time travel is not a possibility yet – there is only one Neo, and it’s not the Fresh Prince of Zion.

  18. I only clicked on this to pause it to say that Will Smith is a total douche bad. He used to be cool but now he's just an asshole.

  19. If Will Smith wasn’t a celebrity people would hate him my advise is Stick to the contract..WHATEVER THEY SAY DO IT..AND WHEN U OFF CAMREA NOBODY IS WATCHING U…AINT NO YOUNG ME THATS SOME BLACK ISH..Its one you BUT THE LINES ARE ETERNAL
