Scipio's role in "Bad Boys For Life" was a pleasant surprise to him, as he didn't know he would be cast as the son of Smith's character, Mike.
While chatting with the producers during his callback interview, he put two and two together. "So, I tell them about my training, and the whole time, they were kind of looking at me just like, 'Yeah, maybe he does kind of look a little bit like Will. We should get him in the room with Will,'" he said in a chat with Geeks of Color. "And the more they're saying, I'm like, first of all, there's only one Will. Second of all, why are they comparing me to him? And then I'm like, oh sh*t. I might be Will's son in this, but they haven't told me that. I'm just thinking I'm smart and figuring it all out, anyway, so long story short: I get to go in the room with Will Smith."
