Renowned actor, David Schwimmer has said that Will Smith's role in Men In Black was originally offered to him, but he turned down the offer at that moment due to several reasons.

The 49-year-old star revealed that he could not grab that golden opportunity at that time because of two particular reasons, one because of bad timing and another, the loyalty towards his friends.

"At the time, Ross, was directing his first film and wanted to cast his entire theatre company, which was made up of his old friends. So, that was my goal... To bring everyone up with me, to give everyone a shot." He said.

"And I did it. And the next year it was set to go into production in Chicago. And it was called Dog Water ? Now it's called Since You've Been Gone. But I shot my first film and the entire theatre company is in it," he added.

"I told everyone in the theatre company, You're all cast, here are your roles, don't take any other jobs for this six-week period," said Schwimmer.

Schwimmer said that all his cast and members had turned down the other offers because of the first film. And just before its production started, he got a call from the Men In Black franchise, which he had to turn down without even giving a second thought.
