WHY MICHAEL B. JORDAN IS NOT DYING TO ACT ANYMORE
Friday, Jul 6, 2018

Michael B. Jordan

Michael B. Jordan is not just surviving but thriving in Hollywood.

But it was getting killed on screen in one of his first big roles – on The Wire – that was almost too much to bare for his mother.

“It started with my mom, who’s super-emotional. When I shot my death scene in ‘The Wire,’ she was on set,” he told the NY Times. “And the P.A.’s kept coming to me and saying: ‘You may want to check on your mom.’ I go see her, and she’s sitting there bawling. I’m just a kid. I’m going, ‘Come on, Ma. You’re embarrassing me.’”

His mom’s reaction was a catalyst that led to Jordan realizing how he wanted to mold and shape his career after one of the all-time greats.

“Look at Denzel [Washington]’s career,” he said. “I want people to see me win. I want audiences to see me ending up on top — not dying. I want to be the leading man.”

Mission accomplished, Creed!
