Will Smith is an American musician and actor. He is most noted to cubers for his role as Chris Gardner in the film The Pursuit of Happyness, in which he is depicted solving a Rubik's Cube in under two minutes.
Behind the scenes, Toby Mao was hired by the film's prop department as a consultant to coach Smith on solving the cube.
While the film is based on a true story, the addition of the Rubik's Cube scene was Will Smith's idea. Will Smith was previously seen solving a Rubik's Cube to impress a university dean in an episode of "The Fresh Prince".
