Men in Black (1997)

Corrected entry: Steven Spielberg cast Will Smith for the movie after Will was suggested by Steven's wife, she jumped right up and said "Will Smith" after they read the script together.

Correction: Actually, director Barry Sonnenfeld cast Will Smith after Sonnenfeld's wife recommended him, Sonnenfeld has stated this fact in several interviews over the years, most recently when he spoke on the 25th anniversary of the film's release.

Correction: This is highly suspect. Do you have any source for this information? Unless you were in the room I doubt you can know she "jumped right up and said Will Smith".
