BEL-AIR has found its new boy!
The reimagined reboot takes the show’s famed theme song quite literally: “now this is a story all about how, my life got flipped-turned upside down, and I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air…”
Smith personally surprised Banks via video chat with the news of his casting. “From the deepest parts of my heart, I want to say congratulations to you,” Smith told Banks in a touching clip. “You have the role of Will on BEL-AIR.”
Banks said in surprise, “I’m so ready. I’m ready to bite down.”
