Will Smith Said ‘No’ To Django!

March 26th, 2013

Will Smith as Django

“It was just not for me.” ~Will Smith

Jamie Foxx may not have not been Tarantino’s first choice for his Django character after all! That’s because Will Smith has revealed he turned down an offer to fill the slave role.

The actor says, he wasn’t offered the role of the leading character, which he says is really the spot that Christopher Waltz filled — who ultimately killed the bad guy (Leo DiCaprio’s character).

Here’s what Will “Preparation H Wipes” Smith had to say:

“Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead . I was like, ‘No, Quentin, I need to kill the bad guy!”

Does Quentin Tarantino like to smash black chics because he suffers from the slave mammy complex? Of course. Don’t believe me.. Ask Kerry Washington.

    Another dumb move for Will. He also turned down Nero in the Matrix franchise to do the Wild, Wild West. See how that worked for him—not!

    I didn’t see the film, but it made money. It got more buzz than any Men in Black 6 every would.

    You’re kidding right? Independence Day and Hancock are typecasted roles? Will Smith has been typecasted in every movie. He has to play the hero.

    Well, considering the fact that he is a way bigger and more bankable star than Keanu Reeves, and also the fact that the “franchise” was completely ruined by crappy forgettable sequels, I think he made the right decision…Not to mention, NO…Just no…Will as Neo? Hell no!

    If u knew the history behind matrix you’d know why he turned it down…. and look like a real pawn to the elite.. turning it down because he didn’t want to upset the establishment…

    Neo… basically is ‘jesus’… the savior, messiah etc…. the original author of the book which inspired matrix (N.B only the first is original, the others are made up as they go along)… had Neo as a black man…. hence why Will was asked to play Neo… watch this movie again and realise it’s very ‘black’ themed… Will didn’t want to upset his political connects by acting out a black jesus… with all these dreadlock guys moving around…

    white folks didn’t feel comfortable with the first installment regardless how much it sold… how often do u see the first matrix as opposed to the others??? then u’ll realise why Will dropped it…

    Will Smith would have been much better than Keanu Reeves. Reeves was stiffer than a board. I hate all the Matrix movies. They have the worst dialogue and Stiff Reeves doesn’t help it along. The only good actor was Laurence Fishburne.

    Actually Reeves got the part because he is not all white. He is actually Chinese and Hawaiian. The producers didn’t want to go with an all white actor for Nero.

    All the Matrix lovers really only love the first film.

    There are philosophy and world religion classes devoted to dissecting the Matrix and its themes.

    I forgot to mention the Matrix movie is not based on a book. The Wachoski (sp) Brothers (they were brothers then)lifted heavily from Joseph Campbell’s A Hero with a Thousand Faces and William Gibson’s Neuromancer. A lot of people thought William Gibson should have sued them.

    The only person the Wachoski siblings “lifted heavily” from was the BLACK woman who originally wrote the Matrix script.

    Then that “BLACK woman” was stealing her ideas from Joseph Campbell and William Gibson.

    @Lisa…Not to mention he probably saw it for what it was, which is most likely the root of his last sentence. In a nutshell, it is just another story about a white savior…I do like the movie, but I am not delusional…I also think people are reading way too much into why Will turned down the Matrix…He may be a better actor than Keanu, but that role did not fit him…He also wasn’t doing really serious stuff at that time.

    Jacky, there is no tea out there about Kerry Washington, whatsoever. I don’t believe she would sleep with Q. Tarantino– she doesn’t have to. She has quite a resume’ by her own merit.

    Jamie Foxx was better in the role anyway. Fuck Will Smith!

    Free Willy has too many problems to deal with at this moment. Money is the least of them. Going through possible divorce proceedings and trying to keep an wholesome image while fighting rumors of gayness is on the agenda. The industry is whacked, but that is the price of fame. Seems as if there is a hidden clause that states confusion has to be part of this price. Being on the outside looking in suits me just fine. Peace out, Papacool.
