I have tickets to see Jaden Smith in con­cert this sum­mer, but I was won­der­ing if he also has a movie com­ing out.

A: Not a movie, but Smith re­turns to act­ing in a new Net­flix se­ries from di­rec­tor Baz Luhrmann.

The Get Down, pre­mier­ing Aug. 12, is about six kids whose lives re­volve around hip-hop, punk and disco mu­sic as they steer a course through a crime-rid­den and des­ti­tute New York City in the 1970s. In his role, Smith, 18, the son of Will Smith and Jada Pin­kett Smith, is for­sak­ing the gender-break­ing skirt he made fa­mous in Louis Vuit­ton ads for some su­per­cool bell-bot­tom pants of the era.
