Willard Carroll "Will" Smith, Jr. (born September 25, 1968) is an American comedic and dramatic actor, producer, and rapper. He has enjoyed success in television, film and music. In April 2007, Newsweek called him the most powerful actor in Hollywood. Smith has been nominated for four Golden Globe Awards, two Academy Awards, and has won four Grammy Awards.
Will Smith in his Golden Globe nominated portrayal of Dr. Bennet Omalu. This was the best role of his career in my opinion. Snub from Oscar nominations caused a list of actors and actresses to boycott the Oscars. Highly recommend. Two Thumbs Up!
