Simon Cowell Signs Will Smith to Judge X Factor US?

Unless Will Smith’s movie career is in a slump, I find this latest X Factor US rumor from the Daily Mirror hard to believe. But I will dutifully report it, as I do all the internet goss.

From the Daily Mirror:

Simon Cowell has scored a massive coup… signing up Will Smith as a judge on the US X Factor.

The Hollywood star, 42, will join “Mr Nasty” Cowell, Cheryl Cole and another, as yet ­unnamed, female star for the show’s ­massively-hyped launch later this year.

A source said: “Simon thinks Will and Cheryl will be a brilliant ­formula. He’s one of the biggest names in America, and considered to be a talented musician as well as actor.”

I dunno. I’m expecting the denials from Smith’s camp any minute now.
