Crybabies To Will Smith: “Stay In Your Lane, Patna”

- By Bossip Staff

Some behind-the-scenes snitches are fussing about Will Smith’s involvement in wife, Jada’s, hit series “HawthoRNe.” They think he needs to step-off a little bit.

Details under the hood.

The TNT network boasts “We Know Drama,” and the cast and crew on its hit show “HawthoRNe” can certainly attest to that.

We hear there’s trouble behind the scenes of the medical series, and sources say it’s being caused by star Jada Pinkett Smith’s husband, Will Smith.

The cast, which also includes Michael Vartan, just returned to the set this week after an unplanned, eight-day hiatus – and although one source says it was because of an illness in the Smith’s family, another well-connected insider suggests it was imposed by the network to sort out all of the production’s complications.

The second snitch continues that TNT executives are blaming the show’s current issues on Smith – a co-producer on “HawthoRNe” – because he isn’t cooperating with the rest of the team.

“He is not currently shooting a movie, so he’s been a constant on the set in recent weeks,” the network source says. “He’s been inserting his input and requesting so many changes to the script that it pushed back the production schedule tremendously and caused everything to spiral out of control.”

Pinkett Smith plays a nurse on the hit show, which premiered last year to stellar ratings. But despite the first season’s success, our insider says her husband wants the dramatic scenes pushed to the limit – and he apparently submits pages of notes and rewrite requests to the show’s writers and producers each week.

A rep for TNT had “no comment” on the matter, and Smith’s flack said that this was “untrue.”

Nevertheless, our source insists: “Everyone is praying for him to book a new movie so that he will go away.”

Unfortunately, the “I Am Legend” star may be a presence on the “HawthoRNe” set a bit longer, as he’s still planning his next career move.

Variety reported on Thursday that Smith is deciding between returning to the third installment of “Men in Black,” or taking a role in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming fantasy-adventure “The City That Sailed.”

Well, Will Smith is the co-producer and has a wildly successful career, maybe he knows what he’s talking about and they should just hush up and hear him out.

    Hawthorne is a great show as is Nurse Jackie. Can’t wait for the new series to start. I don’t know what all the fuss is about. Maybe the producers don’t understand or can’t relate to his vision. I think they should let the audience decide whether they like it or not.

    This is not the first time I have heard about Will Smith being difficult.. If anybody remember his first mom from his first how show complaining about him….

  • WhatAWorld

    Will might be right,because the show doesn’t jump out at you,like the other series.Hell, Will knows what he’s talking about and he’s a big power player in Hollywood.They might want to take his advice.Folks want to see more action and I unfortunately can not sit through a whole episode.

    If its true,I see were Will is coming from.

    Will was also a kid at that time. I’m sure he has a better understanding of the business and what he is doing now that he is a mature adult that has been in the business for a long time now and knows the ropes. Isn’t he one of the executive producers of the show? There are always going to be creative differences, especially when it involves white and black people because most of us come from two different experiences.

  • chocalatetunda

    i love that show. i was wondering what was going on and i been waiting for the second season. i want to know if anything is going to po off between Jada and the doctor. they have to much chemistry together. but the new eposides come back on in the summer. So excited.

  • Coll3ge Knowl3dge

    i can’t even get over past the picture to comment…lol

  • Coll3ge Knowl3dge

    What the hell did I just type? over past…. Any who… I don’t know anybody who liked the second Fresh Prince Mom. I hope he doesn’t start replacing cast members. hahahahaha

  • glok9makesmydiksohard

    Wow, that show still comes on?

  • Sticky-n-Sweet

    Unless he is the EXECUTIVE producer (meaning he fronted the most cash), Willy needs to step back before he makes Jada a “hard cast”. Hawthorne is a good show, but it was a little too much yelling going on in that hospital. All the nurses I know have learned to control those panic reflexes. Jada should shadow a real nurse, cuz all that yelling just makes the patient go into shock in real life!

  • Leelee

    Hit series…didn’t even know that crap was still on.

  • Jay the Real One

    I’ve heard Jada say she sought Will’s input and why not?

    ?? On TV? *shrugs*

  • B3 Fearless

    I don’t think will should be interfering contrary to what other’s are saying. I believe he is a producer of the show but still interfering to the point where he’s topping production and isn’t coming to an agreement with the rest of the production staff just doesn’t make sense and how is that helping the show and making it better?

    So if the rumor is true he needs to fall back.

  • Wreckless Driver

    I have to agree with an earlier post:HIT SERIES? Last time i checked,this was the lowest rated out of all of TNT’s dramas. That show can use all the help it can get! Will is the only reason they even bought it back for a second season,because they were seriously considering cancelling it!

    did u know Will was almost 30 years old during the taping of FRESH PRINCE!

    I can only imagine how annoying that is but the man does have the experience and probably does know what he’s doing.
