Will Smith is the only major African American male actor that has never played a thug, a drug dealer, a pimp or any of the usual stereotypical roles. Even Denzel and Morgan Freeman can't say that.
His films have grossed so far, $4,385,478,973. He earns 20 to 30 million a film and still manages to have a decent music career.
This month Will stars in the film I Am Legend. The film opens on December 14 nationwide. I don't know all the details of the film. But here is what I know. Will stars as Dr. Robert Neville a scientist who might be the last surviving human on earth after a man-made virus devastates human life on the planet.
That's all I know because I don't want to spoil the film for me or for you. Anyway I plan to see this because it looks interesting and because I want Will Smith to keep starring in non-stereotypical roles.
