Even with “After Earth” not meeting expectations, Smith proved he’s still a good sport when it comes to the talk show circuit. He recently surprised host Graham Norton on his show by singing the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme with his son Jaden and DJ Jazzy Jeff.

Smith should stay busy after “Earth” publicity wraps. He is currently in pre-production on the drama “Focus” at Warner Bros. and a remake of “The Wild Bunch” with Warners as well.
