Back in October, we reported that After Earth star Jaden Smith was rumored for the title role of DC’s upcoming Static Shock live-action digital series. Now, that report seems to have been confirmed, thanks to The Walking Dead and Dear White People‘s Tyler James Williams.
Williams was recently interviewed at McM Comic Con (via Flicks and the City), and was asked about any interest he might have in starring in a comic book adaptation. When he lamented that there “aren’t a lot of young, black superheroes,” someone in the crowd shouted out, “Static Shock! Spider-Man!” His response?
“I don’t know… [coyly] what you’re talking about. But yeah no, it’s great to see Static Shock happening with Jaden.”
Now, this is far from official confirmation, but it is a sign that Jaden is at least circling the role. We have yet to hear more news about the Static Shock series, »

Jaden Smith's prom outfit was fit for a superhero—literally. You know Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith's son likes to stand out and make an entrance, so it makes sense that when it came to the biggest dance of the year, Jaden was going to bust out a memorable outfit for the occasion. Opting against the usual suit with a tie that matches the date's dress, Jaden wore an all-white Batman suit. Yep, you read that right. His superhero suit was fully equipped with pack of abs and a pretty sweet cape. Jaden did throw on a blazer and tie on top of the costume, but we're guessing that didn't last too long. So why the Batman route? Because living (is what we're guessing is »

HBO has greenlit the comedy pilot “Brothers in Atlanta,” about two best friends, Langston (Diallo Riddle) and Moose (Bashir Salahuddin), who try to navigate—but usually stumble—their way through the entertainment scene in Atlanta. The pilot will film in Atlanta this spring and the cast will include Maya Rudolph and Jaden Smith. Riddle and Salahuddin—best known for their work as writers and performers on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”—will produce, write, and star. The executive producer is “Saturday Night Live” honcho Lorne Michaels. HBO had previously ordered a Riddle and Salahuddin pilot in which they played Atlanta reporters, though it did not get picked up. However, the network liked the duo’s comic skills along with the Atlanta setting, and decided to work with them again on a different concept. “Brothers in Atlanta” is Michaels’ first series order with HBO. In addition to “SNL” he is also »
