The Living Large picture? Isn't that an early Penn and Teller promo?

Actually, I just realized I was thinking of Laurence Fishburne, not Will Smith, this morning.

Will Smith is a great catch-all though. When I was still hanging out with my friend Doug in the early days of Stargate, those in the know would stop him for autographs. When other people would wander by and wonder who the big black guy was getting his photo taken, we always just pointed and said "Will Smith." Everyone nodded in agreement then went on their way.
