Will Smith Rumors
James Corden’s always-entertaining “Carpool Karaoke” segment is becoming its own series on Apple Music, and among the celebrities participating is none other than LeBron James. In a clip previewing Will Smith rapping some of his greatest hits with Corden, we got to see a peek at the Cleveland Cavaliers superstar getting down to Michael Sembello’s Maniac, made famous by the movie Flashdance:
Blink and you might miss James. The Cavaliers superstar appears briefly, first showing off his karate skills to Corden and then letting loose to an unknown song while sitting in a car. The show was taped in the spring while the Cavaliers were in Los Angeles. A bit was also taped at Staples Center prior to the game against the Clippers. The 16-episode season of “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” is set to premiere on Apple Music August 8 at 9 p.m. with Corden and Will Smith gettin’ jiggy wit it. From there, two new episodes will arrive every Tuesday, but it’s not certain yet exactly when the episode featuring James will drop.
The Sixers didn’t know that actor Will Smith, a Philadelphia native and part owner of the team, was going to address the players at a dinner in Center City on Monday night until he walked into the room. Noel admitted he was starstruck. “Man, that’s one of my idols,” Noel said. Noel said Smith gave the players advice about dealing with the media, handling their day-to-day duties and discussed the favorite and least-favorite movies in which he’s starred.
If Will Smith could pull it off, why not Russell Westbrook … right? Russ stole the show at Dorell Wright’s ’90s-themed charity event in L.A. this weekend — rocking the overalls, no shirt, gold chain, pink hat and glasses look … with an ugly yellow jacket to match.
