Will Smith: 1992/2020
Will Smith’s first introduction to the big screen came in 1992 when he played Manny in the drama Where the Day Takes You. He was a legless cripple in this role, something you wouldn’t imagine Smith doing today.
As of 2020, he starred in the third and possibly final entry of the Bad Boys series. Bad Boys For Life stars Smith and Martin Lawrence as they try and find out who’s out to kill Will’s character, Mike Lowrey.
