The “Concussion” actor also details preparing for his role in the film.
Will Smith, who has made a name for himself as a rapper and actor, says that it might be time for him to try another venture. The 47-year-old tells theHollywood Reporter that he is hopeful he has built a platform for himself as a voice for the people.
“I don’t like hanging in one place too long,” he says. “So I think, at this point, I’m elevating my ability to be useful in the world. I think that that’s what my grandmother always hoped, that I would make myself useful to people in this lifetime. I’m working really hard and my storytelling is elevating, my ability to be eloquent with my body and with my voice and to deliver ideas as an actor is elevating. And, you know, as I look at the political landscape, I think that there might be a future out there for me. They might need me out there. This is the first year that I’ve been incensed to a level that I can’t sleep, you know? So I’m feeling that at some point, in the near future, I will have to lend my voice to the conversation in a somewhat different way.”
