Jaden Smith has been casted to play one of his idols in an upcoming Showtime series.

According to MTV, Jaden will play a young Kanye West in a alternate reality in the upcoming anthology series Omniverse.

The first season will explore the perception of ‘ego’ through the alternate reality of young Ye, giving insight to Kanye’s thoughts, feelings, and viewpoint as a child growing up in Chicago.

Kanye is executive producing the show alongside Scooter Braun, Lee Sung Jin, Scott Manson and Miguel Mendez. Together, the clan will bring Showtime it’s first anthology–a series presenting a different story in each episode–in years.

Ye might be new to the television industry outside of his role on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ but Jaden is not new to the big screen! We’ve seen him in movies from ‘The Pursuit Of Happyness’ to ‘The Karate Kid’, and he has also played roles in various animated series’.
