NextMovie: Black History Month - 9 Rising Stars

I would love to see Jaden grow up to be as great an actor as his dad is. I'm not entirely sold that he has it in him though. And if he does, not sure he'll ever reach that potential if his dad just keeps pandering to him rather than letting him have to truly prove himself.

I was thinking the same thing, and then he also appeared in the Justin Bieber documentary. He did some singing, and he was really good at rapping his lyrics but he still has some work to go.

I'm not sure if he will be like Will or not to be honest, but either way he should grow to be something great. I hope.

Jaden is going to be the kid actor who grows up to do another career. While his father will be an actor for the years to come, Jaden will be graduated from college.
