Which lead role did Will Smith famously turn down and starred in Wild Wild West instead?
Neo in The Matrix
Will Smith turned down the role of Neo to make Wild Wild West, because of skepticism over the film's ambitious bullet time special effects. He later stated he was "not mature enough as an actor" at that time, and that if given the role, he "would have messed it up".
