Actor Michael B. Jordan will be felicitated with Hollywood Walk of Fame Star on March 1. Jordan has been acting professionally since he was 12 years old. He has worked in movies like Fantastic Four (2015), Creed (2015), and Black Panther (2018). He is set to make his directorial debut with Creed III.
He didn’t initially dream of becoming an actor. In 2015, Jordan said his mother set his career in motion when she decided to take him to his first commercial audition.
“It wasn’t something that I always wanted to do. But like a lot of kids, you know, I didn’t know what I wanted to be. And modelling, acting, it got me out of school early, got me a chance to go into the city, so I was all into that,” he said.
Jordan also earned significant praise for his work in a number of critically acclaimed television series, including The Wire and Friday Night Lights. He was featured in Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
Over the course of his career, the actor has also expressed his interest in becoming a producer. He has also started his own production company called Outlier Society.
