Check out Will Smith’s new role as a Nigerian doctor in new Hollywood movie, ‘Concussion’


Iconic American actor, Will Smith takes on another interesting role as a Nigerian doctor in an upcoming Hollywood movie ‘Concussion’.

The movie is a true-life story based on the life of Bennet Ifekandu Omalu, a Nigerian born American forensic neuropathologist who discovered a head injury, Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE).

‘Concussion’ opens with Will Smith (Dr. Omalu) doing battle with a powerful corporation, he struggles to convince the NFL that CTE was a thing and they should acknowledge it as a disorder that is affecting several players. The case went to court and his lawyer trying to derail him from pursuing the case, decribed it as “going to war with a corporation that owns a day of the week.”

Directed by Peter Landesman, and starring Alec Baldwin, Adewale Akinuoye-Agbaje and several others, ‘Concussion’ promises to be another unforgettable blockbuster — just listening to Smith’s Nigeria accent makes it unforgettable already — too bad we have several months before it’s release, which is on December 25, 2015 by the way…
