When we told you Wednesday that the new "Bad Boys" sequel was being filmed this week in Miami, we had no intention of crashing the shoot.

  • But while the Axios Miami team was giving editors Jeff and Kristen a tour of the city, we wound up face-to-face with the star himself.

What he's saying: Kristen, alone among the group in maintaining her composure, asked Smith how it was going. His reply: "All is lovely," as he got in the driver's seat of a black Porsche on Brickell Avenue.

The latest: The production will be in town through the weekend. Here's where to expect road closures (and, maybe, spot a friendly movie star):

  • Southwest Second Avenue and Second Street from 6am–10pm on Friday.
  • The Southwest Second Avenue bridge between Third and Eighth streets from 7am–6:30pm on Saturday and Sunday.
