Ha! Looks like we posted at the same time :) You were technically one minute faster so I'll take mine down, it's only fair;)

Ha! It's all good, K! :wave2: Like you said in the other post, I like the fact that Ridley Scott is involved in this, although he's not directing it.

Smith will play Dr. Bennet Omalu, the forensic neuropathologist who was a total outsider and made the first discovery of CTE, the concussion syndrome that has been fatal in contributing to the suicides of such former NFL superstars as Dave Duerson and Junior Seau.

"And following that, she’ll play Will Smith’s wife in Concussion, the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu (Smith), the forensic neuropathologist who first discovered extensive brain damage in NFL players and tried to put a stop to it."

Actor Will Smith in Lodi today: ‘Everyone here just sort of fainted.’
Will Smith, the actor, is visiting Lodi today.
He’s here reportedly in preparation for his upcoming movie “Game Brain,” where he will play Dr. Bennet Omalu of Lodi, a pioneer in the researching concussions related to football.
Smith had lunch with an unnamed regular customer at Wine and Roses between 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. today.
“We didn’t know he was coming. We had a reservation, but we didn’t know it was him,” said Katherine Munson, restaurant manager at the Towne House Restaurant in Wine and Roses. “Everyone here just sort of fainted.”
Smith had the restaurant’s Tamale Pancake with a glass of Harney Lane Chardonnay for lunch. Munson said that employees didn’t bother him during his meal but converged on him for pictures after he was about to leave.
“He was very gracious,” she said.
Smith has been touring Lodi today, but he will not be staying at the Wine and Roses hotel.
