    Jaden Smith To Play A Slave In New Role

    After a depressing performance in “After Earth,” that earned him a Razzy, Jaden Smith has landed a new role as a slave in the film-adaptation of James McBride’s National Book Award winning novel “The Good Lord Bird,” reports Deadline.

    Smith will play “Onion Shackleford,” a young slave who links up with radical abolitionist John Brown in 1856. “Onion” wears a dress and is often mistaken for a girl. He encounters historical figures like Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman along his journey to the Harper’s Ferry raid that helped spark the Civil War. He will star alongside Liev Schreiber.

    Interesting. Do you think Jaden can play a convincing slave?
