EXCLUSIVE: Shameik Moore Dishes on Voicing 'Spider-Man' in New Animated Film & Friendship With Jaden Smith
The Get Down Brothers are just as close in real life as they are on the show.
ET's Courtney Tezeno sat down with Shameik Moore for a Facebook Live interview on Tuesday, where he opened up about bonding with his Get Down castmates, and Jaden Smith in particular.
"We talk, honestly. We connect to the universe as we're speaking," he said. "We have great conversations." 
"[He's] definitely [eccentric, but] people don't know how spiritual I am. It's not that weird when me and Jaden talk," Moore continued. "I understand a lot of what that he says. Now, his tweets are a little confusing to me sometimes, but we're on the same frequency."
"We have great conversations," he added.
Smith's unique persona has recently expanded beyond his tweets and into the Met Gala, where he arrived holding a handful of his own cut-off dreadlocks. 
"I was like, 'Oh!' I didn't give it much thought," Moore revealed. "[It was] Jaden being Jaden."
While the 22-year-old actor is currently starring alongside Jaden in The Get Down, he's set his sights on Jaden's father, Will Smith, as a dream co-star.
"If Will Smith played my dad in something, that would be so lit to me," he shared. "I don't know if Jaden would like something like that or not. I'm like his bro, but that's his pops. I really don't know."
Moore has already met the 48-year-old actor a few times, as he came to visit The Get Down set, but said the pair really connected at the premiere of Suicide Squad last year.
"All eyes on me! And he was like, 'Yo that sh*t was crazy!' And nobody [had seen] The Get Down yet except for Jaden and his family," Moore confessed. "I didn’t even see it yet."

"He was [one of the first people to congratulate me on the show]," the Dope star revealed. "I'm like, 'Shucks,' just thinking about it... That's a cool man right there. He showed me how I need to be in the future, like, how I need to operate, because a lot of people don't move that way. [He's] very loving and inviting to someone [newer to the industry]."
While Moore also wants to collaborate with Chris Brown, Yara Shahidi, Zendaya and Usher, he'll next be seen playing the part of Miles Morales in an upcoming animated Spider-Man film.
"I waited a very long time to hear back from them. I thought I didn't get it," he said. "But anyways, yeah, I'm more than excited and thankful. I am voicing Miles Morales, the black Spider-Man. I am a black young man."
"It's very, very powerful to me. It says a lot. In my journal before Dope, I drew 'I am Spider-Man' and then on the next page I drew, 'I am Miles Morales' across the whole two pages of it," he explained. "Two years later [it actually happened]."
"Write it down, pencil [and] paper," he said of the predestined moment. 
The Get Down is currently streaming on Netflix.
