18 of the Biggest Triple Threats that Dominate Hollywood
Talents: acting, rapping, comedy
Make no mistake: acting and doing comedy are completely different things. Smith happens to nail them both flawlessly! Everyone knows he has major comedy chops from his years on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air but he’s also an amazing dramatic actor. It’s not too often that one actor can be hilarious one day and portray award-winning drama the next. But before he was an actor or comedian, he was a rapper. In his early days in the entertainment business, he was just one half of a hip-hop duo with his buddy DJ Jazzy Jeff. Even after he got his hit show, Smith continued to churn out hits. He’s won an Academy Award and a Grammy. He’s also being entrusted to play the Genie in the live-action Aladdin remake so he can really do anything!
