Michael B. Jordan has been making a name for himself in Hollywood for over two decades. Although the New Jersey native initially broke out in television in HBO’s The Wire and ABC soap opera All My Children, he soon headed for the big screen. Jordan got his major leading role in 2013 for Fruitvale Station.
In addition to his acting, Jordan has made headlines for simply being sexy. In 2020, he was dubbed PEOPLE‘s Sexiest Man Alive.
“It’s a cool feeling,” he told PEOPLE at the time as he graced the cover, flexing his chiseled arms in a tight white polo shirt. “You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get.’ But it’s a good club to be a part of.”
Michael B. Jordan Moves Behind The Camera
In 2023, Jordan made his directorial debut on Creed III.
“My ambition has intersected at this moment where I have the experience and knowledge to direct, the opportunity within a franchise to step behind the camera and [the ability] to maximize it by having a production company. It’s my turn to make my impact while I have the energy and strength,” he said back in 2o21 to The Hollywood Reporter.
His talent has also been recognized with the honor of being named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2020.
“He already is a force in front of the camera, but he’s going to be an even bigger force behind the scenes. When it comes to Michael, we should expect the unexpected,” Denzel Washington said of Jordan in his TIME profile. Washington got a chance to direct Jordan in 2021 on the film A Journal For Jordan.
Jordan’s career continues to remain promising, and we’re looking forward to seeing what’s next for him.
