When he was 12, Jordan modeled for companies including Toys R Us and Modell’s. He started acting and landed roles including Wallace in HBO’s “The Wire” in 2002, Reggie Montgomery on the soap opera “All My Children” – a role he took over from future “Black Panther” costar Chadwick Boseman – from 2003 to 2006, and Vince Howard on “Friday Night Lights” from 2009 to 2011.
Jordan began working on more movies, and in 2015 he starred in “Fantastic Four” and “Creed,” which accumulated $173.5 million in box offices around the world. When the 2016 award season started, Jordan snagged a BET best-actor award for “Creed.” A few months later, Jordan appeared in an Apple TV commercial with Kobe Bryant, and in September 2016 producers announced that Jordan would voice a character in the basketball video game “NBA 2K17.”
Also in 2016, Jordan launched his production company, Outlier Society, which is currently working on his film “Just Mercy” and recently signed a first-look production deal for the movie with Warner Bros.
Jordan had a big 2018
Jordan then starred as Guy Montag in HBO’s “Fahrenheit 451,” which he told The Hollywood Reporter he initially turned down, saying, “Being a black man, I didn’t want to play somebody who’s an oppressor.” He said he spoke with director Ramin Bahrani about the movie’s themes, and he ended up taking the part.
Jordan lives with his parents in Sherman Oaks
“Look, it’s every kid’s dream, to buy their mom and dad a house,” Jordan told UK newspaper The Times. He bought the house for $1.7 million in 2015, according to Realtor.com. And while he lives with his parents, he irons his own clothes, as he demonstrated in a 2018 video for Vanity Fair.
In his November 2018 GQ cover story, Jordan said he has plans to move out to what GQ described as a “not-yet-selected bachelor pad that will have a pool.”
When he’s not house hunting or filming a movie, Jordan indulges in the exciting and luxurious
He works out in his home gym for a morning sweat or to prep for a role. When Jordan was gearing up for “Black Panther,” his longtime trainer told Men’s Journal, “He hit the point where he was pushing 110-pound dumbbells up in the air.”
He has an impressive shoe collection.
Jordan is starring in an animated TV show, “Gen: Lock,” with Dakota Fanning and has three movies in the works, “Without Remorse,” “Wrong Answer,” and “Just Mercy.” “Just Mercy” and “Without Remorse” are scheduled for release in 2020.
