These L.A. Cops Daryl Ward and Nick Jakoby are the main men, these characters are played by Will Smith as Ward and Joel Edgerton as Jakoby. Will Smith took on this role and he was the perfect guy for the job.
The foul mouthed Daryl Ward is dark and ominous in this role– Extremely different from his plenty of other roles, especially that of Fresh Prince of Bel Air.
