  1. Will and Charlize battle it out shooting their latest film It was a case of lights, camera and most certainly action for Will Smith and Charlize Theron this week as the duo got down to shooting their latest big screen offering in Los Angeles. The pair grappled with each other during a fight scene on the set of Hancock while effects team-assisted rain fell down in the summer heat. The comic book-inspired film tells the story of a superhero - played by 38-year-old Will - who has fallen from grace. He enlists the help of a PR expert to improve his image, but in the process finds himself tangled up in a tempestuous relationship with his guru's wife, portrayed by Oscar-winning Monster star Charlize. Though cinemagoers will have to wait until next July to see the finished product, shooting means that the residents of LA have already been treated to a sneak preview of some of the scenes that will end up on the silver screen – including one exciting episode which saw Will suspended from wires high above the streets. http://www.hellomagazine.com/film/2007/08/...smith-charlize/ :wickedwisdom:
  2. Will: "Come on Charlize! Why don't you want to make "The Legend of Bagger Vance 2" with me!? :tantrum: :lolsign:

  5. Will Smith’s Been Shot! http://www.imnotobsessed.com/more/will-smith-shot-movie.jpg And look how happy he is about it! Here are some more behind the scene pictures from Will Smith’s latest movie, John Hancock. I actually feel guilty about posting so many pictures from the set. I feel like we are learning too much about the plot. First we saw the car scene and now this. http://www.imnotobsessed.com/2007/08/09/wi...iths-been-shot/
  6. Will Smith Gives Out His John Hancock It seems like you all have been enjoying the recent photos of Will Smith, so here's a few more for your viewing pleasure. With none of his costars by his side, Will was looking every bit the leading man (and super beefcake) taking some time out on the set of John Hancock to give out some John Hancocks to awaiting fans in LA yesterday. Will's come a long way since Fresh Prince of Bel Air but dare I say he looks better than ever? http://popsugar.com/505921 Will Smith's John Hancock, Preview http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoZNFLfTtBc :yeah:
  7. You are welcome :thumbsup:
  8. Rev. Al Sharpton must have some serious man-love right now for Will Smith. Raise your hand if you remember the Fresh Prince. I'm not talking about the goofy guy from Bel Air, I'm talking about the kid who hung with DJ Jazzy Jeff and gave a generation of rap fans some of the most original and whimsical tracks ever recorded. The Fresh Prince didn't need cussing, womanizing or gang-banging to sell his albums or image, and look what happened: he ended up being one of Hollywood's hottest commodities in the mid to late 1990s. In case you missed it, that same kid -- now grown up and known better as Will Smith -- released his newest album, "Lost and Found," in 2005. The album released during a time when hip-hop music was rife with unoriginality, vulgarity and crudeness, so "Lost and Found" was a definite breath of Fresh Air. This past spring I rediscovered my copy of the CD, brushed off the dust and have since given it regular rotation in my car. I bring this up not as a means of aging myself, but as a way to drive home the importance of Rev. Sharpton's latest crusade. Yesterday, Rev. Sharpton called for hip-hop artists to clean up their act, to stop using the "n-word" and to refrain from demeaning women in their lyrics and videos. Will Smith would be proud. For that matter, so would Bill Cosby. At some point, a relevant, public figure in the African-American community had to say something about the atrocity that rap music is committing on our airwaves and in the minds of America's youth. Rev. Sharpton, to his credit, did just that. One could say Smith's "Lost and Found" was different just for the sake of being different, maybe even to sell a few extra albums. But when you look at Smith's track record, he really is a different kind of artist, and he holds a different set of standards and morals than most of today's hip-hop crowd. However, he'd been gone from the hip-hop scene for so long that many people overlooked the album and thus missed out on its important themes and messages. Likewise, Bill Cosby has said multiple times that today's teens and 20-somethings, fueled by the imagery promoted in hip-hop music, are themselves responsible for perpetuating certain stereotypes about the African-American community. Although harsh, Cosby's basic tenets are relatively logical. But like Will Smith, Cosby is often perceived as "too 1980s" or worse yet, as a "crazy old man," and thus his opinions are dismissed. But Rev. Al Sharpton, by calling out the hip-hop community and demanding it hold itself to a higher standard, has infused Smith's and Cosby's "mission" with a sense of relevance. With Sharpton calling for the same basic changes as Smith and Cosby, their message may finally take hold. Before hip-hop had Young Jeezy, it had Young MC. Before it had Ludacris, it had Kool Moe Dee. Before it had radio edits and explicit-lyrics labels, it had good beats, creative themes and clean language. In essence, it was an honest-to-God art form, not a misused platform to talk wantonly about liquor, guns and sex. "But hip-hop is popular, and it's selling more albums than ever." That's true, and it makes Sharpton's, Cosby's and Smith's message all the more important. If hip-hop cleans up its act, if it can preach professionalism rather than pimping, if it can espouse morals rather than marijuana, a large part of society will change its tune. Almost all of America's youth listen to hip-hop. In turn, if hip-hop artists return some of the decency they had during the 1980s and 1990s, almost all of America's youth could eventually aspire to (gasp) be moral, professional adults. When was the last time you talked to a teen who wanted to be a doctor? A lawyer? A government official? The change is societal, but it's also a matter of what kids are taught it means to be a "role model." Hip-hop artists can't be blamed solely for creating society's problems, much like they can't change society on their own. But with hip-hop being such a large part of American culture, isn't it time for the hip-hop lyrics and videos to present something more, something inspirational and aspirational? Rev. Al Sharpton's call to clean up hip-hop gives credibility to a message that less-prominent voices have been preaching for years. Raise your hand if you want to see more kids aspiring to great careers, great families and great relationships with members of the opposite sex. Now, give Rev. Sharpton a hand for speaking up and sending the hip-hop industry a message that's been long overdue for a relevant spokesperson. -- Jonas Allen http://www.dailygame.net/news/archives/006476.php

  10. What Are They Up To? James Avery of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air August 6, 2007 James Avery was popularly known for playing Philip “Zeke” Banks on the television series The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Affectionately called “Uncle Phil” by Will Smith, his patriarch character ranked number 34 in TV Guide's “50 Greatest TV Dads of All Time.” While this lawyer turned judge was somewhat strict and grumpy, he also had a softer and caring side, especially when dealing with his family. Throughout the series, he did what was best for all his children, Hilary, Carlton, Ashley, Nicky, and including Will, whom he treated as his own son despite being related to Philip only by marriage. At present, the 58-year-old actor is working on several film projects, which will be released in the coming months. On November 2, the former Prince of Bel-Air actor will be featured in a comedy movie called Let the Game Begin. James Avery stars as Mark Hanley, along with Stephen Baldwin and Thomas Ian Nicholas, in a plot about a man who explores the life of a pickup artist in order to search for an honest woman. Before the year ends, Avery stars in yet another comedy film about love, faith and destiny called Divine Intervention. The movie follows a hip preacher (Wesley Jonathan) who becomes a temporary pastor of a small Baptist church. His flashy approach to preaching is immediately well received by the members of the now growing congregation but is frowned upon by his strict and traditional predecessor Reverend Matthews (Avery). Complications sink in when he falls in love with Reverend Matthews's daughter (Jazsmin Lewis). The film is directed by Van Elder and is currently in post-production stages. Additionally, Avery has two more movies that are currently in production. He'll be taking on a Chancellor role in the musical comedy called Steppin: The Movie and will be tapping into the world of science fiction with the movie Harvest Moon. Aside from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, James Avery has also worked in numerous movies and television shows. His most recognizable roles include Walter Carter on Soul Food, Charles Haysbert on The Division and Dr. Crippen on The Closer. http://www.buddytv.com/articles/the-fresh-...-aver-9072.aspx
