See Will Smith in Costume as Venus & Serena Williams' Dad!

Will Smith is playing the role of Venus and Serena Williams‘ dad in the upcoming movie King Richard and we have some photos from set!

The 51-year-old actor was spotted on set on Wednesday (March 4) in Los Angeles.

Will was wearing red tennis shorts and white socks with red stripes that matched his jacket. Also seen on set were Saniyya Sidney and Demi Singleton, who star as a young Serena and Venus.

The story depicts how Richard, with no tennis background, overcame tremendous hardship and drew up at a 78-page plan for the girls’ professional tennis careers when they were just children.

The filming happened on the one-year anniversary of a big moment for the movie.
