The Suicide Squad star is playing neurologist Dr. Bennet Omalu in the upcoming sports drama Concussion!
The appropriately titled film tells the controversial story of the doctors who proved that former NFL players suffered major neurological problems from the on-field head injuries that occurred during their careers!
After studying the brains of ex-football stars, Smith’s character discovers they were suffering from a neurological disease caused by repeated trauma to the brain — but the biggest fight is against the NFL, who denied all accountability!
The film also stars Albert Brooks, Alec Baldwin, and Luke Wilson as NFL commissioner Roger Goodell!
Check out Smith and his accent in the trailer (above) and go see Concussion in theaters on December 25!
