[ # ] Will Smith thanks Jon Lovitz for his career
January 16th, 2020 under Jon Lovitz, Will Smith

Did you know before Martin Lawrence and Will Smith starred in Bad Boys, the roles were supposed to go to Dana Carvey and Jon Lovitz. Well, you know the rest. They Saturday Night Live dup turned it down, and the Bad Boys became a huge success launching both their careers into superstardom.

The other night at the premiere of Bad Boys for Life, Smith was finally able to do something he was wanted to do for 25 years and that is to thank Lovitz for turning down the role. Although, the comedian says that he said yes to the part. Yeah, that’s it. That’s the ticket.

You have to give both men credit. The Critic for having the balls to show up to a movie premiere for a role that he was really stupid to turn down. The Fresh Prince for realizing this is someone whom he owes his career to and thanking him for it.

I wonder if Lovitz and Carvey had said yes if there would have been a sequel for the movie 25 years after it came out.

BTW Michael Bay was also not attached to the film in its original incarnation. What a difference some changes can make.
