Celebrity of the Week: Michael B. Jordan

Born in Santa Ana, California, and raised in Newark, New Jersey, Michael B. Jordan had a rough start. Growing up around friends that sold drugs and stole cars, it was hard for him to stay on the straight and narrow path. 

Before he became famous, he was modeling for brands like Toy “R” Us. HIs first acting role came at the age of 12 years old with a small role in “The Sopranos”. A few years later, he landed another guest appearance alongside Bill Cosby in the show “Cosby”.

Over the years he continued to land small roles. His big break came in 2011 when he landed a recurring role as Wallace in an HBO show called “The Wire”. This show helped him earn critical acclaim and made him as a rising young talent to watch.

In 2015, Michael B. Jordan landed a star role in the movie “Creed.” This helped him make a statement saying he meant business. This movie created a spotlight around him known as “Baby Creed”, the son of Apollo Creed.
