Space Jam 2 is getting a new addition to the cast--Don Cheadle!
The Avengers: Endgame actor has been announced as the newest cast member to the Terence Nance-directed sequel. This is all we know of his involvement, as his role is being kept a secret. Make your speculations now.
Cheadle joins Sonequa Martin-Green, who has been cast as Lebron James' wife. While these two are the only actors who have been announced so far, there are other characters that take part in the sequel, including Dom, a character who will be the film's co-lead and will be cast as a teen actor. Another character named Malik is modeled after James' real-life childhood friend and business partner, Maverick Carter.
Cheadle has had a big year; not only has he starred in Endgame, the second-highest grossing film in history, but he also stars on Showtime's Black Monday, which will be back for its second season in 2020.
Space Jam 2 stars and is executive produced by James, Sev Ohanian and Allison Abbate. Producers include Carter, Ryan Coogler and Justin Lin. The film will be in theaters on July 16, 2021. The film will also be written by Coogler and Ohanian.
