Jordan got his start on television, playing Wallace in the first season of the HBO crime drama series The Wire. His star has been on the rise ever since his stand-out role in Josh Trank’s 2012 film Chronicle. Since then, he’s worked on several major movies, such as Marvel’s Black Panther and the ongoing Creed films.
The actor is a close friend and collaborator with filmmaker Ryan Coogler, appearing in each and every one of his feature films.
Currently, Jordan is set to direct and star in the fourth installment of the Creed films. He’s also scheduled to star in a sequel to Will Smith’s post-apocalyptic sci-fi suspense film I Am Legend.
