Will's Up the Dirt Road


Episode Info

To prove his worth to Lisa (Nia Long), Will decides to become a celebrity journalist. Though his proposed book "The Stars at Night" goes nowhere, he manages to get an autographed photo of TV talk host Jay Leno sold to a tabloid newspaper. Unfortunately, the photo is doctored to make Leno look like a jerk--and before long, Will is facing an enormous libel suit! In addition to Jay Leno, screenwriter-novelist John Ridley (later the "auteur" of the hit movie Barbershop) also appears as himself.
