Amazingly, it has been 21 years since The Recent Prince Of Bel-Air left the airwaves, which might make Carlton Banks a middle-aged man in 2017. On condition that data, one has to surprise what Carton can be as much as as we speak if he had been an precise individual. Actor Alfonso Ribeiro had some solutions relating to his well-known character, saying he thinks Carlton would’ve tried to observe in his father’s occupational footsteps:
I’d imagine that Carlton as we speak… He would in all probability be both a lawyer or working his strategy to being a choose. I feel he actually would have adopted in his father’s footsteps.
That sounds par for the course on this rhetorical state of affairs the place The Recent Prince Of Bel-Air would nonetheless be on tv as we speak. Simply think about if Carlton was a choose and, by some stroke of luck, Will bursts into the courtroom and decides to defend himself after getting a parking ticket or for disrupting visitors with a very colourful jacket. That is a plot line that might be ripe for a reunion particular, proper? To unhealthy that can apparently never happen, not less than if Will Smith has something to say about it.
Alfonso Ribeiro shared his speculations with Yahoo while on a press tour for America’s Funniest House Movies, which nearly appears like another (and extra meta) profession path for Carlton! Whereas Will goes off and stars in edgy and loopy movies akin to Suicide Squad or Independence Day, Carlton will get seen by a expertise scout for his honorable and healthful nature and will get tapped to be the host for the AFHV. Then once more, Ribeiro will not be as healthful as his character on The Recent Prince Of Bel-Air, since he additionally confessed to taking residence a bulk of Carlton’s sweaters from the present’s wardrobe when Recent Prince ended. Contemplating the kind of excessive style Carlton wore within the present, who can blame him?
As cool as it could be to see Carlton grow to be a choose in a reunion for The Recent Prince Of Bel-Air — doubtless sporting a kind of sweaters beneath the gown — it is likely to be even cooler if Will ended up turning into a choose like his uncle. It would not make a lot sense contemplating the TV character doubtless would not have made it by means of regulation faculty, however Will Smith might positively imitate James Avery’s Uncle Phil if he wanted to for some kind of reunion. Maybe Alfonso Ribeiro can persuade his former castmate to get on board with a comeback particular by whipping out the Carlton dance the subsequent time the 2 males see one another. Let’s make this awkward dream a actuality!
