Will Smith. We're accustomed to seeing the bad ass actor fighting off the galaxy's weirdest aliens and most high-tech robots on the big screen in films such as "Men in Black" and "I, Robot". So, naturally, one wonders what if the actor had accepted the lead role of another big name sci-fi film franchise. Namely, "The Matrix". Thanks to deepfake video technology, we don't have wonder anymore. If you haven't already seen it, check it out, below.
What are your favorite film or TV deepfake videos?
What do you think of all this deep-fakery, anyway? And where do you think all of this will lead?
Do you think that, one day, actors won't even have to show up for work anymore? Will they just sit at home and collect paychecks while film makers use their likenesses (faces) to deepfake entire films?
In the future, will we be giving our friends and loved ones custom-made deepfake videos as gifts? (Examples: a DVD of your male friend starring as "The Terminator" for his birthday or a DVD of your female friend starring as Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's" for her birthday, etc.)
