Justice Smith – A Rising Star and New Episodes of Genera+ion

Justice Smith

Breaking out as the comic relief in 2018’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Justin Smith (b. 1996) segued to leading-man this year with Genera+ion — HBO’s Gen Z drama about sexuality and identity. “The best parts of “Genera+ion” elevate the beauty of the expression of various forms of “normal,” reminding people that the definition of the word is different for everyone.” – Brian Tallerico for www.rottentomatos.com

In June 2020, amid last summer’s racial justice protests, Smith went public with his sexuality, coming out as queer on Instagram after participating in the Black Lives Matter protest in New Orleans.
“As a Black queer man myself, I was disappointed to see certain people eager to say Black Lives Matter but hold their tongue when Trans/Queer was added. … If your revolution does not include Black queer voices, it is anti-Black.”

Smith played in 2018 in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and will return in 2023 with Jurassic World: Dominion. In March, he moved into the music space with his debut single, “Bed.”

He’s also in production on Paramount and eOne’s Dungeons & Dragons adaptation alongside Chris Pine, Hugh Grant and Regé-Jean Page.

Justice about his character in Genera+ion: “His outfit is very important to me and I am very vocal in the dressing room, but it’s all props Shirley Kurata, Our costume designer. She is pulling these great pieces. “

A rising star, a great actor. Genera+ion can be watched on HBO.
