Everything You Need to Know About Space Jam: A New Legacy Star Cedric Joe

Thanks to Space Jam: A New Legacy, out July 16, Cedric Joe is about to become a household name.

In the sequel to the 1996 classic, Cedric plays Dom, the son of a fictionalized version of the unparalleled and iconic basketball player LeBron James. LeBron would love for him to follow in his footsteps, but Dom would rather be a video game developer. When the two get trapped in a virtual realm called the Serververse, LeBron must lead the whole Looney Tunes gang in a game of basketball against the talented Goon squad in order to escape—though we think that Dom's tech-savvy nature might also help along the way.

Ahead of the release, we just had to find more about Cedric. What are his favorite things, and what's he all about? Here's what he revealed to us as our latest Man Crush Monday.
