Busta Rhymes said he wants to be the next Will Smith. No, not the rapping Will Smith … the acting Will Smith. Busta said he’d definitely pursue a full-time acting career on television if given the chance. He “got to know about what that syndication money look like!”
The Touch It hitmaker, real name Trevor Smith, is an avid follower of actor Hugh Laurie’s medical drama House and the hit crime series CSI. The hip-hop star has tried his hand at acting with small roles in films like Shaft in 2000 and 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection, and admits following in Will Smith’s footsteps and landing a role in a TV series would be a dream come true.
He says, “Yes I would (pursue a full-time TV career). I’m a big fan of House. I’m a big CSI: Miami fanatic. And they pay good. The Will Smith money is still crazy, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and all that. I got to know about what that syndication money look (sic) like.”
