Will Smith turns 53 on Saturday, so let’s take a look at his work as a musician and actor, Outsiders.
Will Smith “was born on September 25, 1968, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His first big break in the” music business came when he was a rapper known as “The Fresh Prince.”
Smith would be the MC of “DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince,” which would be made by “his childhood friend Jeffrey “DJ Jazzy Jeff” Townes. Ready Rock C was the human” beatbox, and his name was Clarence Holmes. Songs like “Parents Just Don’t Understand” and “Summertime” were funny and good for the radio. In 1988, they won the first Grammy Award for a rap song.
Will Smith sang as “The Fresh Prince” and played the title role in the movie “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”
Yes, Outsiders is where the name of his character on the TV show “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” came from.
The TV show ran on NBC from 1990 to 1996, and after that, it went into reruns. But Smith had only just begun. He would talk about movies, and he would say how great Smith was on the big screen.
Some of his biggest hits are “Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happiness,” “Bad Boys,” and “Men in Black.” Will Smith is the only actor whose last eight movies have all made more than $100 million at the American box office. In the meantime, Smith has made more than $150 million from 11 movies in a row.
The movie “Wild Wild West” is the one the actor most regrets making. Passed on Being Neo in “The Matrix” Outsiders, we’re not done counting up Will Smith’s successes yet. He was the main actor in eight movies in a row that opened at No. 1 at the local box office.
He also appeared in “Independence Day” and “Wild, Wild West.” “Wild Wild West,” a remake of an old CBS show with Robert Conrad and Ross Martin, is said to be the movie he hates making the most.
Almost every actor has turned down a part that they now wish they hadn’t. Smith, for example, did not play Neo in “The Matrix.”
Will Smith is married to actress Jada Pinkett Smith, and the two of them have two kids, Jaden and Willow.
Newsweek called Will Smith “the most powerful actor in Hollywood” back in 2007. How about prizes? Well, at home he has four Grammy Awards. He has also been nominated for two Oscars and five Golden Globes.
But people who watch reruns of “Fresh Prince” get to see him. Movie fans can look for a Smith movie on Netflix or another movie station.
In other words, he’s done a lot in his life. Will Smith, happy birthday!
