6 Major Movies Michael B. Jordan Came Crazy Close to Starring In

Even if you consider yourself one of Michael B. Jordan’s biggest fans, buckle up because you’re in for a surprise. We know we already hit you with a bunch of little-known facts about the 31-year-old actor this week, but there’s still way more to this guy than meets the eye. First of all, he just told Ellen DeGeneres that he’s currently living with his parents, complete with home-cooked meals and midnight kitchen raids, and that he has to pee constantly because he drinks a gallon and a half of water a day. See? The guy’s full of secrets!

And his career is the exact same way. Even though he’s been highly praised for his roles in films like Creed and Fruitvale Station and has a ton of projects lined up for 2018, things haven’t always been so easy for the actor. In fact, he was on the verge of a big break SO many times, until his auditions for these major movies didn’t go quite as planned.

But all’s well that ends well, right? Because he’s killing it now — and we couldn’t be more excited for him!
