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?’”
