WILL SMITH BIOGRAPHY
Willard Christopher Smith Jr. was born in 1968 in Philadelphia, from a refrigerator technician father and a school administrator mother. He has excellent grades at school and his mother would like him at MIT after high school, but he has no intention of doing so. He faces the world of music and in 1985 founded with his friend Jeffrey Townes the musical duet Dj Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, which is very successful, to the point that Will gets into trouble with the taxman by badly managing his finances.
It rises again thanks to the colossal success of the sitcom The Prince of Bel Air (1990-1996), for him a real turning point in popularity. Within two years he was already noticed by the cinema, appearing in the ensemble cast of The damned of Hollywood (1992) and soon after in the thriller 6 degrees of separation (1993), with Stockard Channing is Donald Sutherland.
It doesn’t take too long and Will becomes the star performer, one of the most prominent exponents of the new Hollywood: he is paired with Martin Lawrence in Bad Boys (1995) and its sequel, punches aliens in Independence Day (1996) and oversees their immigration into Men in Black (1997), partner of Tommy Lee Jones. A colossal success with the public, which soon leads Will on the road even by Gene Hackman, with which he duets in Public enemy (1998, of Tony Scott) and of Robert Redford, which directs it in The legend of Bagger Vance (2000). In between is his first flop of Wild Wild West (1999), resulting in the victory of two embarrassing raids (worst paired with Kevin Kline and worst song).
It’s just a stumbling block, because very soon, in 2001, he overturns the harsh judgments with a great performance in the role of Cassius Clay in Ali of Michael Mann, a satisfaction translated into Golden Globe and Oscar nominations for best protagonist.
From 2004 to 2008 offers an energetic and charismatic image at the box office, a magnet for the public: it confronts itself with Asimov in a hip-hop version with Me, Robot (2004), teaches to seduce in Hitch (2005), alone studies the antidote to a virus that decimates humanity in I’m legend (2007, wins an MTV Movie Award), is an alcoholic superhero in Hancock (2008). In the flow of honors at the boxoffice, he also received an international critical honor, with the honorary César for Lifetime Achievement in 2005.
Meantime in 2006 has started a courageous intimist path, personally guaranteeing for a foreign director with whom he wants to work, Gabriele Muccino: he doesn’t care, because The pursuit of happiness, shared with his son Jaden, assures him others two well-deserved Oscar and Golden Globe nominations, while Seven souls (2008) remains one of his most particular and if we want more disturbing interpretations.
At this point Smith disappears from the screens for four years, in a hiatus that is difficult to explain in retrospect. Come back with a routine Men in Black 3 (2012) and with the highly contested After Earth (2013) of Shyamalan, conceived by himself as a new vehicle for himself and the son Jaden: two Raids flock, Worst Supporting and Worst Screen Couple. While his star seems to be waning, in 2015 he prepares to re-seduce audiences with comedy Focus – nothing is as it seems with Margot Robbie and with the sportsman Shaded area, which tells the story of a Nigerian neuropathologist who discovered CTE, a degenerative disease that affects the brain after repeated blows to the head, putting several football players at risk. Meet Robbie on the set of Suicide Squad (2016) of David Ayer, in which he plays the villain Deadshot. In the same year he is the protagonist of the drama Collateral Beauty (2017), the story of a man who, following some tragic events, lost his enthusiasm for life.
Back to collaborate with Ayer in Bright (2017), the sci-fi crime released by Netflix and set in an alternate reality in which humans share the Earth with various fantastic creatures. In 2017, the news leaked, later confirmed, that Smith is in talks with Disney to play Genius in Aladdin, the live action of Guy Ritchie of the well-known and homonymous animated film of 1992.
