Will Smith Loves to Warm Hearts

Who can resist a Cinderella story? Certainly not Will Smith, who has just signed on to produce The Pursuit of Happyness 2 another rags-to-riches film based on an inspiring memoir. The book, called Cooked: From the Streets to the Stove, From Cocaine to Foie Gras, tells the life story of Jeff Henderson, a former drug dealer who worked his way up to become "Chef Jeff," executive chef at Las Vegas' Cafe Bellagio. Apparently, he used his prison sentence to learn the ins and outs of gourmet cooking.

It actually looks like an interesting story, and this type of film is destined to cause widespread heartstring yanking and weepiness. Yet it's hard not to see these movies becoming a kind of Will Smith cliche. Currently, it's not yet determined whether Smith will play the lead role, though he's obviously warmed up for it. Ha ha... get it? Warmed up... cooked... Ah, forget it.
