Will Smith

Will Smith was already beating up the charts with DJ Jazzy Jeff when he walked into America's living room with his television sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air in 1990. Playing a street-wise kid from Philadelphia who migrates to Cali to live with his rich aunt and uncle and his cousins, the hit show ran for six years and was the launching pad for The Fresh Prince to conquer Hollywood.
