Jaden Smith nabbed a new movie role. The rumored boo of Kylie Jenner and heir to the Smith family throne will be playing a slave in his next slave era themed flick.
Speak on it inside....
Another slave-themed movie is on the way. And 15-year-old Jaden Smith is slated to play the role of a young slave who becomes a freedom fighter.
In the upcoming flick The Good Lord Bird, which is a big-screen adaptation of the 2013 National Book Award winner by James McBridea, Jaden will play "a young slave who links up with radical abolitionist John Brown (Schreiber) in 1856 Kansas and travels the nation with Brown’s motley crew of freedom fighters."
Deadline reports that the story is told through Jaden's character "Onion" and his satirical point of view. The character also wears dresses and is first mistaken for a girl:
Story is told with a satirical bent through the eyes of Onion, who wears a dress and is at first mistaken for a girl, as he bears witness to Brown’s historic campaign and encounters the likes of Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman en route to the bloody Harper’s Ferry raid that helped spark the Civil War.
The After Earth actor will be starring alongside vet Liev Schreiber. So...are we feeling the theme of his new role? Or nah, because Hollywood may need to fall back on the constant influx of slave films?

As Porsha Williams' fate with the producers of RHOA hangs in the balance (see the reunion fight clip) and Cynthia Bailey is being put up for elimination (thanks NeNe Leakes), one lady who'll surely be back is Phaedra Parks.
While the inevitable trial of her husband Apollo Nida is enough to keep her storyline going, the Southern Belle gave executive producer Carlos King a little extra attention during Kandi and Todd's reception. Ms. Donkey Booty put that thang on him and he Instagrammed his approval. "#WCW this DONKologist @phaedraparks giving me servings of rump roast at @kandiburruss a"nd @todd167 wedding! #goodtimea
