I’m still in shock (pun intended) after reading this news. Yes you read the title correctly. The kid with the pretentious fluff tweets and dingy dreads known as Will Smith’s seed was picked to play Static Shock. This news came when the Everybody Hates Chris actor Tyler James Williams said during a Comic Con Interview.
“But yeah no, it’s great to see Static Shock is happening with Jaden.” (Fast forward to the 1:05 mark if you want hear him say it.)
I’m guessing Tyler is friends with Jaden and Jaden told him, then he accidentally let it slip in this interview. I’m not a fan of this pick, but I’ll reserve judgement until we get that first trailer. How you guys feel about this news? Let us know in the comments below.
