*Jaden Smith has stepped up his Hollywood hustle by signing with powerhouse talent agency William Morris Endeavor (WME), reports Deadline.
The 17-year-old son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith had previously been with Paradigm. According to Deadline, he’ll continue to be repped by Miguel Melendez at Westbrook Entertainment and attorney Jason Sloane.
Smith will next be seen in Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Netflix series “The Get Down,” premiering August 12. Smith will play the role of Marcus “Dizzee” Kipling, a psychedelically talented and enigmatic graffiti writer, in the new music-driven drama set in 1970’s New York City.
Smith, whose gender-fluid fashion sense has also made recent headlines, launched his acting career starring alongside his dad in “The Pursuit of Happyness,” followed by “The Karate Kid” with Jackie Chan.
He has moved into areas such as recording artist and designer and is currently the face of the Series 4 campaign for Louis Vuitton and is working on a studio album, out later this year.
