Nearly thirty years ago, the world was blessed with the comedic stylings of a young Will Smith.
Little did we know the show about a street-smart teenager moving in with his rich relatives in Bel-Air, California would launch the young actor into the world of Hollywood stardom, and still be syndicated on our television screens today.
Since breaking into the film industry, Smith has starred in box office hits like, Independence Day, the Men In Black series, The Pursuit of Happyness, and I Am Legend, but he hasn’t forgotten about his roots.
"It was my very first role, and I was very, very focused on being successful, so I learned the whole script and everyone else's lines. If you watch the first four or five episodes, you can see I'm mouthing other people's lines. It's terrible and I can't bear to watch it," Smith said during an interview on The Graham Norton Show last December.
Discussing a potential reboot, Smith shot suggestions down, saying he would now have to play the role of Uncle Phil.
"Man, I'd have to be Uncle Phil in that one. I'd be 50. Like, 'c'mon, Aunt Viv, I'm 50! I can't go out on my own?'"
But, despite being close to a half a century old, not all hope should be lost for Smith reprising his iconic role.
