Michale B. Jordan Revealed His Worst Audition Was For ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Michale B. Jordan has managed to establish himself as one of the best actors of his generation. Movies like Creed Y Black Panther They allowed him to show his talent and captivate the audience. The love of fans of the MCU or the Rocky / Creed saga is something quite present in Jordan’s life.

However, he was also close to being worthy of the applause of one of the most important fan bases in cinema: that of Star Wars.

In 2015, the start of a new trilogy of Star Wars made it to the big screen thanks to The Force Awakens and introduced us to new characters like Rey, Kylo Ren, Finn, and more. Among these new faces we could have seen that of Michale B. Jordan. However, the actor failed terribly at the audition.

That was probably my worst audition to date.

Jordan explained on the podcast Just for Variety that in productions as large and high-level as it is Star Wars the mystery is an elementary part of the making of the film. As there is a lot of expectation to know what the plot is going to be about, who the characters are and other details that give a clue to the story, the production opts not to give almost information to the actors when they audition for a role.

In this sense, Michael did not have any previous script to help him better prepare his character. He came to audition and had to try to convince the casting directors with super vague dialogue. Unfortunately, he did not make it.

Jordan expressed that his brain did not click with the words of the script: he could not connect with the character and he screwed up. The failure was such that the actor almost ran from the casting site.

Michael did not reveal what character he wanted to get in. Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Maybe we would have liked to see him as Jedi. However, given the age he was at that time – the audition was in March 2013, Jordan had just turned 26 – and the characters we later met, it is very likely that it was for Finn, the defector stormtrooper and faithful companion of Rey (Daisy Ridley) finally played by John Boyega.

All actors have a bad hearing in their careers, in Michael’s case it was this. However, the actor obviously did not give up and two years after this setback he wowed the audience with his character as Adonis Johnson in the first installment of Creed.
