357. Jeremiah Craft on Jaden Smith 'Erys' (2019)
Today actor/musician Jeremiah Craft (Bill & Ted Face the Music, Girls 5Eva) joins me to delve into the newest album we’ve ever covered on the show, Jaden Smith’s 2019 LP ‘Erys’. We talk about the ambition of the record, how it acts as a conceptual sequel to Jaden’s debut ‘Syre’, how Will Smith inspired Jeremiah to start acting, the pressures of living up to famous parents, why this is one of the few albums Jeremiah listens to in full and more. Plus we discuss creating characters and Jeremiah’s process for playing Louis Armstrong, what his dream role would be, the contrasts between stage, film and TV acting and how playing other people can reveal truths about yourself.
