Willard Christopher "Will" Smith, Jr. born September 25, 1968 has worn many hats throughout his illustrious career. Rapper, actor, comedian and musician--he really can say he's done it all. Will grew up in a middle class area in West Philadelphia called Wynnefield--where he received his education at the Overbrook High School. It was there he got the nickname "Prince" because of the way he could charm his way out of trouble. Soon he met a friend by the name of Jeffery A Townes. The duo quickly paired up and began performing as DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince. After receiving a decent amount of fame due to his musical talents, Mr. Smith was quickly connected with a television producer who wanted to build a show based on his life. It was pretty simple: he plays himself, and what it would have been like to be living with his extremely wealthy family in Beverly Hills. It was a wildly popular show and was the jumping off point for a long career on the silver screen. Though he occasionally goes back to his comedic roots, the handsome Will Smith has matured into a delightfully debonair actor who takes his craft seriously.
