Actor. Rapper. Politician? It looks like Will Smith may soon add another job title to his resume, in a potential career move that greatly overestimates his current popularity with the U.S. populace.
During an interview with CBS News, Smith said the continued popularity of Republican presidential frontrunnerDonald Trump has made him seriously consider running for the nation’s highest office—a wild miscalculation of the 47-year-old actor’s present standing with the average American voter.
2. Bill Pullman becoming the Randy Quaid-esque crazy person with a connection to the aliens is BRILLIANTHere’s the problem with bringing Bill Pullman back for an Independence Day sequel - he can’t still be president. Unless President Whitmore abolished term limits and declared himself Dictator-For-Life (which I would be totally onboard with, by the way), he would have been long out of office by now. And since his entire role in the original film was built around him being the leader of the free world, what could he bring to the table in a sequel?Plus, there’s another problem: Randy Quaid’s character died a glorious kamikaze death in the original, and someone needs to take the place of “crazy bearded dude with a bizarre connection to the aliens."And that’s where this movie made its most brilliant move - placing former President James Whitmore as a wild-eyed, bushy-bearded crazy dude who cannot forget his brief psychic connection to the aliens. Hats off to Roland Emmerich on this one.
