Michael B. Jordan

Michael B. Jordan had a breakthrough 2013, thanks to his starring role as Oscar Accord III in Fruitvale Rank. Prior to his acclaimed performance, he endeared himself to television audiences with arcs on The Wire, Friday Night Lights and Parenthood. He’s rumored to be in discussion for Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot as well as Lee Daniels‘ Richard Pryor biopic. But first, he’s making his comedic debut in That Awkward Moment, alongside pals Miles Teller and Zac Efron. Tearjerkers, superheroes, comedic legends–is there anything MBJ can’t do?

We’ve been fans of the 26-year-ancient Newark, New Jersey native since he had braids and was worried of crickets as West Baltimore resident Wallace on The Wire. For those of you who are still unfamiliar (and in about 12 hours you’ll have no defense to continue to be so) with the talented actor, use this guide to get yourselves better acquainted.

1. He has dramatic chops

Jordan has been consistently cast in heavy projects, often suffering a traumatic death. (He’d like to bunk that trend for the sake of his own mom.) TAM director Tom Gormican gushed to us about his crying abilities, and FNL fans could recognize the Vince Chin anywhere. Place of protection’t seen the aforementioned Fruitvale Rank? Get on it!

2. He’s a practical joker

In TAM, Jordan’s character runs into some problems with his little head and a perilous pot of self tanner, causing him to wear only a towel for a good five minutes of the film. He doesn’t go full-frontal, but costar Miles Teller revealed to Us Weekly that Jordan trapped the entire set by bolt from the blue on multiple occasions:

You know, Michael B. is very comfortable walking around on set naked. It’s a lot to deal with when you’ve just met a guy, but, yes, he enjoys taking his pants off.

His fellow costars agree!

3. He’s always willing to help a friend in need

Although… does Zac Efron really need any help?

Maybe with his neckwear. Added bonus: MBJ knows how to tie a tie.
