This upcoming year is going to be a whirlwind of exciting adventures for Ceyair Wright, who just got the green light to play a lead role as LeBron James’ son in Space Jam 2.
Wright is currently a top-five cornerback in the class of 2021 roster and a D1 college recruit with a huge list of offers to explore. He’s been auditioning for television shows and movie roles for most of his life and it looks like he’s finally got a chance to share his acting skills with the rest of the world. Back in the spring of his sophomore year, he was a lead contender for a main character on the Netflix series Outer Banks. Though he didn’t get the gig, the skills and experiences he attained from the cast auditions have prepared him for this highly coveted role.
“It was definitely really fun to be a part of that audition process, and that was something that I enjoyed,” Wright said. “Then a couple months later, I booked Space Jam, so I was definitely appreciative for it.”
Wright does take notice that one day he may need to put football on the back burner to pursue acting full time or vice versa based on all of the sudden changes occurring in his life. With that decision comes great responsibility and he knows he’ll be better prepared when that time comes.
