Seacrest interviews Smith during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his role in the film Focus.
When I first got the screenplay for Focus and then Margot got cast and Jada looked up Margot online and saw that she was 23-years-old and in perfect condition, Jada looked at me and said, ‘Boy you need to go to the gym right now’…He (Apollo Robbins) had circumstances in the past that he wouldn’t discuss, he’s turned over a new leaf, but he is an absolute genius. What he was explaining to us about the concept of Focus. He said, ‘Ok, this is what we do,’ and he had me walk into a store and steal a pack of gum and walk out. It’s like jumping out of an airplane. It’s such a bizarre thrill.
