Uncle Phil is the beloved patriarch of the Banks household, the central focus of ’90s sitcom The Contemporary Prince of Bel-Air, remodelled and reimagined as new collection Bel-Air.
The 2022 model of the present might share the identical primary premise as the unique present, but it surely varies in each single different means — it’s extremely dramatic with a darkish edge, and as we observe younger Will Smith (Jabari Banks) as he strikes from Philadelphia to dwell together with his rich kin in Bel-Air, Calif., it’s instantly clear that that is no sitcom.
Holmes matches into the function of Uncle Phil so seamlessly, together with his manicured beard, fierce glare and highly effective vitality, that it’s no marvel collection co-executive producer and authentic star Will Smith gave him his seal of approval after his audition.
World Information’ Chris Jancelewicz sat down with Holmes on a fast Zoom name to see how he got here to the function and the way he’s feeling now that Bel-Air is on the market.
