Will Smith wants to be the Black James BondPublished by Clay Cane on Friday, May 8, 2009 at 12:00 am.
When Big Willie says he wants a role — Hollywood better pause. The Black James Bond role has been floating around for the past few months with Diddy and Jamie Foxx’s name in the mix. Now, the #1 man in Hollywood says he wants the role.
In a recent interview Jada’s old man said, “Puff probably lives the most like James Bond and Jamie Foxx got the swagger for James Bond. He can sing too, so he can add a new element to Bond, wooing the ladies. But I think I can guarantee the box office!”
Without a doubt, Smith can guarantee the box office. However, Idris Elba recently said he thought he should have the role because Bond is British. Honestly, I would rather see an actor on the up and coming land the Bond character versus someone who is already a massive moviestar. Traditionally, playing James Bond made someone a superstar. You gotta love Will Smith — but give the up and coming folks a chance!
Do you see Will Smith as James Bond?
