Will Smith to sit down with David Letterman on his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction… but he won’t be talking about his shocking Oscars slap
Will Smith will be back in the public eye when he sits down for an interview with David Letterman later this month.
The 53-year-old King Richard star will be making his most high-profile appearance since he slapped Chris Rock on stage on March 27 at the Academy Awards ceremony when he appears with Letterman on his Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction on May 20.
However, fans hoping to hear the actor delve into the shocking moment will be disappointed, as Smith and Letterman, 75, taped their interview earlier in March, before the Oscars.
Smith is among a stacked group of interviewees for Letterman, including Cardi B, Billie Eilish, Ryan Reynolds, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Kevin Durant.
In the spotlight again: Will Smith, 53, will appear on David Letterman’s Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction on May 20, marking his most high-profile appearance since his Oscars slap; seen at the Oscars on March 27 in Hollywood
