'Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' Cast Reunites And It’s The Coolest
Huffington Post - 11 months
They’re all still fresh. The cast of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” reunited for a sunny reunion shot posted Monday by costar Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Tom Jones fan Carlton. Will Smith, who portrayed the streetwise Philadelphia teen sent west to live with his well-to-do aunt and uncle on the 1990-96 sitcom, stood tall in the middle. Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete. A post shared by Alfonso Ribeiro (@therealalfonsoribeiro) on Mar 27, 2017 at 5:27pm PDT In case you need your memory jogged; from left in the photo are: Tatyana Ali (Ashley), Ribeiro, Karyn Parsons (Hilary), Smith, Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Vivian ’93-’96) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey). Ribeiro gave a shoutout to James Avery, who died in 2013. We won’t forget you, Uncle Phil. Portions of the cast have gotten together occasionally over the years, and it’s always a welcome reunio...

Justin Timberlake Dances 'The Carlton'... With Carlton

It's not unusual for Justin Timberlake to do "The Carlton" whenever he's with Alfonso Ribeiro.

Alfonso Ribeiro Isn't Interested In A 'Fresh Prince' Reboot
Huffington Post - over 2 years
Sorry, "Fresh Prince" fans, but Alfonso Ribeiro says there's no reboot on the way. Despite rumors that Will Smith is developing a "present-day family comedy that puts a new spin on the fish-out-of-water tale while maintaining the spirit of 'Fresh Prince,'" the actor who played Carlton Banks told HuffPost Live on Friday that even if it did happen, it would be a totally new entity all its own. "I've heard the rumors. It's not exciting to me because I know it ain't gonna happen," Ribeiro said. "And if it happened, it wouldn't be 'Fresh Prince.' It would be something that's taking the story of the show and having all new people do something. To me, that's not 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.' There's one 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.' Is Will Smith starring in it? No. Then it ain't no 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.'" Ribeiro is pretty busy these days with other projects, including as host of "America's Funniest Home Videos," which returns for a new season Oct. 11. But he said a cast reu...
