Baz Luhrmann has chosen Jaden Smith for a role in his Netflix-commissioned hip-hop-focused series The Get Down, joining a cast of mostly unknown actors.

He'll be playing Marcus 'Dizzee' Kipling, a "psychedelically talented and enigmatic graffiti writer raised in the South Bronx."

"We as an audience have known Jaden since he was very young," Luhrman says. "Recently, Jaden has been seeking diverse and challenging roles and this is a testament to his passion to grow in the craft. We're all very happy with the casting of Jaden in the role of 'Dizzee' Kipling, and with his addition, the Kipling family cast is now complete."

Previously Jaden has starred in The Pursuit of Happyness (with his dad), After Earth (with his dad), and the Karate Kid reboot (produced by his parents). Hmm.

Also, recently Will Smith mentioned something about getting advice from Jaden about making music.
