Viral videos are becoming quite popular, and Will Smith has risen to the occasion with some interesting videos of his own. He has always been one of the hottest actors around, but the younger generation of fans that are more in tune with his children are totally oblivious to the bankruptcy times in his life.
In classic Will Smith fashion the rapper turned actor highlights the things that lead him to a career in acting. It is comical to see how he breaks down his first audition, and it appears that this was something that he really had no true desire to do. He wanted to audition for the role for “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” but he did not want to do it at the house party that Quincy Jones was throwing.
Quincy replied to this conversation with Smith by telling him that he could set up a time for an appointment to audition for this, but that appointment would possibly turn into a 3 week wait. The advice that Quincy Jones presented to push Will into the role was that time was of the essence. He felt that Will should do the audition right there at the home while the party was going on.
It was at this point that Quincy would have movers to rearrange his furniture and open up a spot for Will Smith to do the audition.
Smith has stated that there was a crowd that was cheering him on as he did this audition. At this time he cemented his position for the role and a contract with lawyers was drawn up in a limousine outside of Quincy Jones house.
This is an interesting story that very few people know, and it just shows that things in show business can happen in the blink of an eye. For Will it was all about being in the right place at the right time. It was also about having the right attitude.
