Cedric Joe’s biggest project to date is appearing as LeBron James’ son, Dom James, in Space Jam: A New Legacy. That film earned over $31 million in its opening weekend at the box office while simultaneously appearing on HBO Max for subscribers.
Cedric is best known as Ced to those around him. That’s the nickname he has chosen to go by. His 5-year-old rescue dog is named Jax and in the clip above we get to know the actor by him showing off his canine companion.
What was it like working with LeBron James?
Cedric Joe states that he’s always been a LeBron James fan long before working with him on Space Jam: A New Legacy. This is obviously 100% believable. Ced is a teenage actor from California who is working in Los Angeles. LeBron James plays for the Lakers. Of COURSE he’s going to be a huge LeBron fan.
The first time Cedric Joe met LeBron James was at the Lakers’ training facility. LeBron and others were in a glass room. Cedric was going through the auditioning process and needed to use the bathroom. As he turned the corner he caught eyes with LeBron and said his heart has never beaten so fast as that moment.
To collect himself, Cedric went into the bathroom and washed his face with water to calm down. Then Ced knew that he’d need to remain calm and collected during the audition. He says he tried to ‘live in the moment’ during the audition to keep it together and not get overwhelmed.
