Will Smith is a celebrated American actor, rapper, producer, songwriter, and comedian who transitioned from a thriving rapper to becoming one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars. Will Smith is the only Hollywood actor to boast of an extraordinarily impressive filmography comprising movies with him in the protagonist role, where each has earned in excess of $100 million globally. He deliberately missed an offer to study in MIT, took to rapping at 12 and his debut album, ‘Rock the House’ already made him a millionaire by 18.
He eventually ventured into acting as NBC signed him on to star in the sitcom ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ and finally graduated to big screen by debuting in ‘Where the Day Takes You’ (1992). He bolstered his reputation by appearing as the lead actor in ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ (1993) and achieved stardom status with ‘Bad Boys’ (1995). ‘Independence Day’ (1996) in which Will starred as an USAF pilot, went on to become one of the top grossing in US cinematic history.
Smith was part of the main cast in the sci-fi action movie series, ‘Men in Black’. Some of his other successful films include ‘Hancock’, ‘Ali’, ‘Enemy of the State’ and ‘I am Legend’.
