Will Smith: “I’d have to play Uncle Phil” in Potential Fresh Prince Reboot
Will Smith broke onto the acting scene in the hit 90’s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air veteran, known for his ability to balance comedy and drama on the show, believes that he should play the character, Uncle Phil, a wise and serious lawyer, as opposed to his younger and more brash character in the original. In an interview on Graham Norton he said, “I’d have to be Uncle Phil in that one. I’m 50. Like, ‘C’mon, Aunt Viv! I’m 50. I can’t go out on my own?’”
In 2015, Will Smith’s production company Overbrook Entertainment, stated that the show is in its earliest stages and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, along with other business parters would join Will Smith as executive producers to the show.
In the mean time, catch Will Smith in his Netflix original movie, Bright.
