Will Smith is getting considerable Oscar buzz for his role as Dr. Bennet Omalu in the upcoming movie Concussion. Will dons a Nigerian accent and transforms into the doctor who took on the NFL after discovering CTE, a disease caused by brain damage in football players who suffer repeated concussions in the course of normal play.
In this clip, Will Smith tells Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who plays his wife Prema, about his dreams of coming to America and how the NFL picked a fight with the wrong person. It’s obvious just how far Will has gone with this role.
