“It’s a cool feeling,” Jordan says. “You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get’. But it’s a good club to be a part of.”
The 33-year-old Creed and Black Panther star succeeds singer/songwriter John Legend, who recently declared former GOT star Jason Momoa as his choice for the 2020 title.
Jordan gained worldwide fame as Erik Killmonger in Marvel’s Black Panther, which grossed over $1 billion at the box office in 2018.
His other notable roles include Fruitvale Station, Chronicle, That Awkward Moment, Fahrenheit 451, Fantastic Four, Just Mercy, and HBO’s The Wire.
He also played Reggie Porter Montgomery on the TV soap opera All My Children from 2003 to 2006.
Jordan, who is rumored to be bisexual, shares a home with his parents (who are both separated).
