The 41-year-old actor is a huge fan of the BBC show and has begged channel bosses for a cameo role.
The Seven Pounds star had first seen the show on a visit to the UK this year.
"I was just chilling in my hotel and EastEnders was on TV. I didn't even know what it was, but I literally could not stop watching it,” the Sun quoted Smith as saying.
"It was like a week's worth of episodes in one. Before I knew it, all I had done was get room service and waste a whole afternoon watching this show I'd never heard of!
"It was so real and gritty. American soaps are all about the beautiful people and being cheesy. This soap had everything.
"There was fighting, people sleeping around - it had it all going on! I'm a bit busy but when things quieten down I'd love to do a cameo. I could make a big entrance in the pub, as you guys call it, and be like: 'Hey, girl let's take this outside,'" he added.
