Another black actor in need of a new agent


Last year he had garnered so much buzz and box office clout off of 'Creed" and what does he have to show for it? The bad guy role in "Black Panther"? And of course that film is being directed by Coogler which makes you wonder if Jordan is interested or able to get any roles from any other director. Seriously his female love interest in Creed has gone on to get all types of high profile gigs but Jordan, the actual star, is watching dust form on his career. Chadwick Boseman managed to make a film or two before BP starts filming, Jordan on the other hand is squandering his moment. Even a small independent movie would have been a nice option rather than sitting around doing Kobe Bryant commercials.

He hasn't done much since Creed. Seems like he can only land roles if he knows the director, three movies with Ryan Coogler, and two movies with Josh Trank.

He said all this year he was shopping around for his own production company because he wants to write, produce, and direct and just fall into the background. It's called Outlier productions and he just landed a deal with Netflix coming soon. I follow him on Snapchat and Instagram that's what he said.

Cool for him. He still could have done one or two movies during that same timespan.
