Back to back covers proves that actor Michael B. Jordan is becoming a major Hollywood player.
Arriving just in time for Thanksgiving actor Michael B. Jordan is the newest cover model for VIBE’s November 2015 Digital Cover. Shot by photographer Peter Dokus and styled by Jeff K. Kim (for The Only Agency), the Newark, NJ-native, who recently graced the cover for Men’s Fitness, shines in heavy, printed knits, seasonal plaids and a deep, killer smile.
Detailing the grueling process of filming Creed, the actor, who stars as Adonis Johnson Creed, boxing icon Apollo Creed’s son, reveals how he told the story from a young black male’s POV:
“I’m trying to shine a light on doing films that get people to think about the things we have in place: our systems, education, judicial, police brutality with Fruitvale Station. I want to tell the contemporary black male experience today of those situations of how we’re treated.”
Creed hit theaters on November 25 and Sylvester Stallone, Phyllis Rashad and Tessa Thompson. Read the entire story HERE and check out more images below.
