Will Neo Smith walks into room with agents, " Ah hell nah," and that would have been pretty much where I would stop the DVD and take it back to blockbuster. Will Smith humour in the matrix, just wouldn't work, though a few jokes in bullet time would take away the overly serious attitude the characters had towards it. If one could see time slowed down, I'm pretty sure one would try something humorous eventualy. It wouldn't fit with the film, but it needed some sort of comic releif other than one liners from Neos evercalm voice.

My thought exactly. Sorry for being away from the thread so long, went away. For those of you who wanted to know where I got the Wild Wild West tie-in, I got it from IMDb under The Matrix Trivia. It said something like: Will Smith turned down the role as Neo in the Matrix for Wild Wild West.

ppl would prolly say that if smith was the original neo and keanu played in wild wild west that keanu wouldn't fit the part for neo...its just that keanu's been neo for so long we can't see anyone play that part other than him

Untrue. Keanu Reeves and Will Smith are just totally different actors. It isn't about 'if they would have swapped roles then...' - it's about that they are very different actors. Will Smith always likes to involve a certain kind of humour into his movies. Keanu, however, is more the 'quiet-but-yet-capable-of-much- guy'.

Don't agitate the mods error. They're supposed to tell you IN the thread as soon as they see it. Go read the rules another time. - If Will Smith was Neo, I think it would be absolutely hilarious, and be more of a iRobot comedy then a scifi action. Although the Matrix is too good to lose so no, I love Keanu!

Will's not that bad as a serious actor. He may slip in the humour, but he never overdoes it in serious films. And hey, who doesn't like a good chuckle, even in the middle of a serious moment?

When they can keep you hooked into the serious mood and make you smile with a quick one-liner at the same time, it's a sign they're doing a damn good job.

I reckon Will Smith wouldn't have done too bad in The Matrix.

Now, get Ricky Gervais playing Neo, and you're well :Censored:...


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

To be honest, I would have loved to see Will Smith playing Neo. Now that would be good...
