Michael B. Jordan was last seen in Ryan Coogler’s highly acclaimed film “Creed”, starring alongside Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson. In 2015, Jordan also starred in a new version of "Fantastic Four,” playing the role of 'Johnny Storm' aka 'The Human Torch', opposite Miles Teller, Jamie Bell, and Kate Mara. He has previously starred in “Chronicle,” “That Awkward Moment,” opposite Zac Efron and Miles Teller and the George Lucas produced film “Redtails.”

Jordan successfully took on his first major leading film role when he starred as 'Oscar Grant' in Ryan Coodler’s "Fruitvale Station.” The cast included Octavia Spencer and Melonie Diaz, and was produced by Forest Whitaker. It premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival where it received the Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award for U.S. Dramatic Film. “Fruitvale Station” has garnered many awards including Best First Feature at the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards, Outstanding Independent Motion Picture at the 2014 NAACP Image Awards and the 2014 Stanley Kramer Award from the Producer's Guild of America. The 2013 New York Film Critics Circle honored Fruitvale Station with Best First Film and the picture was also chosen as one of the Top Ten Films at the 2013 National Board of Review Awards, where Michael took home the award for Breakthrough Actor. Michael also won the 2013 Gotham Award for Breakthrough Actor and was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Lead Actor.

Jordan has also starred in three of the most critically celebrated television dramas of the past decade. First, Jordan played the hard-shelled but softhearted 'Wallace' in HBO's dramatic hit series "The Wire". He then went on to star as quarterback 'Vince Howard' on "Friday Night Light,” before playing recovered alcoholic, 'Alex', on Parenthood.”
