Will smith also turned down the role of Neo in the matrix...
his career is fine the way it is= fukk qt
And whats crazy is according Will Smith if he didn't turn it down they were going to hire Val Kilmer as Morpheus (cause you know Hollywood wasn't about casting two major black stars much in the same movie)
Val Kilmer as morpheus would have been horrible...
Role was perfect for Sam L.
He would have been good. I get the reasoning behind why he turned it down, but not if you read the script. Pulp Fiction was too good a script to turn down, the size of the role be damned.
@Cat piss martini where the gif at
It's hard when you're an actor on the rise, you gotta have a 3rd eye and sixth sense when choosing movie roles. Because one or two bombs can sink your career. And you can get type cast as a supporting actor, when you are trying to becoming a leading man. Especially as a BLACK ACTOR you have to be careful how you choose.
I understand why Fishburne turned it down. Just like I understand why Will turned down the Matrix, that movie was a risk.
it went how it was supposed to go.
That was a dope listen.
Any brian pumper fukked his daughter
