Rapper Chris Brown has revealed how he is inspired by rapper turned actor Will Smith, as he attempts to make the switch in to movies. Chris has already appeared in a few movies and has now been given the lead in the Benson Lee flick Planet B-Boy.
Brown explained, "When acting, I feel like it's cool to use your strengths, but it's also cool to use your other abilities as well. I didn't just wanna do movies that had consistent dancing and singing, I wanted to do stuff that pushes me as an actor at the end of the day. Stuff that's not around what I do in the entertainment industry as far as music.”
He added, "So I just wanna branch over to that, especially like Will Smith. He comes from rapping and going right into the acting thing, so I wanna come from the singing parts and go into acting, and people can tell the difference.” Planet B-Boy is currently filming and is set to be released in 2012.
