Michael B. Jordan CHRONICLE Interview

Michael B. Jordan CHRONICLE Interview slice

Michael B. Jordan (best known from television via Friday Night Lights and The Wire) emanates an effortless aura of “cool”. In Chronicle, the upcoming found footage + superhero flick, Jordan channels his inherent charms as Steve Montgomery – the uber-popular wannabe politician who upon exposure to a radiating crystal-of-some-kind obtains the ability of telekinesis. I spent the majority of Chronicle convinced that this Steve cat was just too cool, too smooth, too damn likable – that there must be something wrong with the kid, something he’s hiding, some sinister motive or skeleton-in-a-closet; but my paranoia was proven unfounded as Steve reveals himself to be far more empathetic and kind then even he initially lets on.

In the following interview, Michael B. Jordan talks about being just so darn likable, the political figure he emulated for Steven and his time on television (past – Wallace on The Wire and future – an upcoming stint on House). For the full interview hit the jump.

Finally, if you missed my video interviews with director Josh Trank or Dane DeHaan, just click the links.
