Jaden Smith To Play Kanye West In Alternate Reality Omniverse
Jaden Smith to play the role of an alternate Kanye West in Showtime’s upcoming TV series Omniverse. “Omniverse” is a limited half-hour anthology series examining the many doors of perception.
The first season of the show explores the ego of Kanye through an alternate reality Kanye West. Jaden Smith will play the role of a young Kanye West. “Omniverse” is written by Lee Sung Jin, who’s currently a co-producer on Amazon’s Undone. His past credits include Tuca & Bertie and Silicon Valley.
“I’m honored and thrilled to be collaborating with everyone involved to present an alternate world through the eyes of a young man somewhere in the multiverse who happens to also be a Kanye West,” Jin said in a statement. “Omniverse is not set in our world nor about our world’s Kanye West as we aim to add a new spin on alternate realities, consciousness, and push the limits of half hour narrative.”
Kanye West will serve as executive producer of the show, alongside Scooter Braun, James Shin and Scott Manson on behalf of Manson’s media company SB Projects. Miguel Melendez and Smith will executive produce on behalf of Westbrook Studios.
No word yet on when the mind-boggling show will officially premiere.

Remy has been booked for misdemeanor assault.
Taylor claims Remy punched her in the right eye while backstage during the Pretty Lou Benefit concert at Irving Plaza in New York on Tuesday, April 16. Taylor, 29 claims she suffered bruises and swelling that forced her to seek treatment at Mount Sinai Hospital.
“This arrest demonstrates how serious this matter is,” Taylor’s attorney, Sanford Rubenstein says. “It is real life and not reality TV entertainment. The victim, Brittney Taylor, has confidence in our system of justice and will continue to fully cooperate with the authorities.”
Remy’s attorney, Dawn Florio claims none of Taylor’s accusations are accurate. Florio claims to have video evidence that proves Remy was at home during the alleged time of Taylor’s attack.
“The complainant is a liar,” she said. “My client did not touch her. This is ‘clout chasing’ at the highest level.”
Florio also argued it was suspicious Taylor lawyered up with a civil attorney immediately after the attack.
Remy Ma, whose real name is Reminisce Smith was released Wednesday on $1,500 bail. She is due back in court May 24.
