Astro is already rubbing elbows with Hollywood’s elite! And guess who Jaden wants Astro to star with?

If you thought Astro was big on The X Factor, just wait until you hear about his next career move! HollywoodLife.com has learned exclusively that Jaden Smith wants the 14-year-old rap prodigy to play “a significant role” in the upcoming big-screen remake of Annie, in which his little sister Willow Smith is starring. And it wouldn’t surprise us to see Astro land a major part int he film, considering Jaden and Willow’s dad Will Smith is producing it!

“Jaden is a big fan of Astro’s,” a source close to the Smith family tells us. “He suggested his dad cast Astro in the movie.”
