If there was ever a doubt that Michael B. Jordan was an incredible actor, that question was put to rest in a big way after he deeply pulled at our heartstrings in "Frutivale Station". Truly an Academy Award worthy performance, the actor is now in high demand to star in some very big projects.
We heard murmurs a couple of months ago that Jordan was up for the role of Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in Josh Trank's "Fantastic Four" reboot. They of course worked together on the critical hit "Chronicle" and became good friends, so it would make sense that we could see them working together again soon.
Roland Emmerich is finally bringing us an "Independence Day" sequel after nearly a decade and Jordan revealed that he is being considered for a role. His less-than-enthused response regarding that was, "if that came true, that would be cool." Perhaps he's just trying to play it cool and not reveal too much.
It is also being reported now that he could be up for one of the biggest and most beloved franchises of all-time; "Star Wars"! While the only confirmed cast members at this time include returnees Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, Jordan spoke out about what it could mean.
He stated, "I mean, everybody’s going in on this project. They’re trying to figure out what they want. That’s another incredible franchise. It’s pretty crazy! …We’ll see how it happens. I don’t know how I can do everything."
Jordan is very talented and seems like a really great and down to earth guy, so I'm really happy that his career is taking off.
