For one, never question Will Smith's acting abilities. I think it's a federal law or something. Especially if a favorable comparison is Keanu Reeves.EllEzDee said:I'm pretty sure it's the other way around. Smith wanted to be in the movie, and he wasn't able to pull off a convincing Neo. I remember reading about it when his wife Jada-Pinkett Smith was cast as Niobe.Diligent said:"They've reportedly approached Will Smith, who infamously passed when they offered him the role of Neo in The Matrix. Yes, that happened. "
I actually didn't know this.
"Welcome to the real world Neo."
"AAAWWW HELLLL NO!"
EDIT: It seems wherever i read that was wrong.
"Actor Will Smith turned down the role of Neo to make Wild Wild West, due to skepticism over the film's ambitious bullet time special effects." -Wiki
For two... Wild Wild West? I mean, really? Will Smith passed up one of the greatest action movies ever made for that pile of crap? That gives me sad...
EDIT: Whoa, two posts right after another. Sorry, don't mean to clutter it. In hindsight, probably should have just edited this into the end of my last post...
