Will Smith irritates drama

Will SmithWill Smith is reportedly causing huge disruptions to his wife’s TV show. He’s been spending a lot of time on the set of the medical drama Hawthorne — in which his spouse Jada Pinkett Smith plays a nurse — because his lack of filming commitments have given him more time to devote to his role as producer on the show. But he has allegedly been infuriating cast and crew by submitting “pages of notes and rewrite requests” every week. A source told the New York Daily News: “He is not currently shooting a movie, so he’s been a constant on the set in recent weeks. He’s been inserting his input and requesting so many changes to the script that it pushed back the production schedule tremendously and caused everything to spiral out of control. Everyone is praying for him to book a new movie so that he will go away.” Will is currently making a decision on whether his next movie will be Men in Black 3 or City that Sailed but has no definite filming commitments lined up. Jada recently revealed her husband wants to be the US President. She said: “Will is thinking about going into politics. He once said he could imagine becoming US president. He wasn’t joking, he was quite serious about it.”

    Yes, but hes is messing up a working machine. He is the producer but is throwing a wrench in the mix. You can say what you want about him being in charge but it doesn’t mean what he is doing is a good thing.

    “his role as producer on the show” so he is the producer but he shouldnt have a say in what goes on in the show? that doesnt make any sense to me. he seems like an excellent man, i would love to see him as president of anything.

    (just read the comments) chris, i agree, revolver, hmm, i agree to a point. i dont think shes irritated by him being there, maybe just by listening to everyone else pi** and moan about her husband to her. joshua he didnt have the time to look over the script before so he has every right as a producer to look it over and decide if he wants to try to change something.

    There’s being a producer and contributing in a worthwhile manner. Then there’s micromanaging. Any manager/producer/director/boss who micromanages is a detriment to a staff/show/business. Saying someone’s the boss and should be able to do whatever is just ridiculous. He needs to go get a job and butt out. And please, for the love of the film industry, let’s hope he doesn’t choose “Men in Black 3.” I shudder at the thought.
