PASADENA, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 22: Michael B. Jordan attends the 51st NAACP Image Awards, Presented by BET, at Pasadena Civic Auditorium on February 22, 2020 in Pasadena, California.

Michael B. Jordan has been making a name for himself in Hollywood for over two decades. Although the New Jersey native initially broke out in television in HBO’s The Wire and ABC soap opera All My Children, he soon headed for the big screen. Jordan got his major leading role in 2013 for Fruitvale Station. Fast forward seven years to 2020, Jordan was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine and became PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive. He’s also been pursuing roles behind the camera; his directorial debut isĀ Creed III which he also stars in. Jordan’s career continues to remain promising and we’re looking forward to seeing what’s next for him.

Take a look at seven of his best films ranked below:

  • 7. A Journal For Jordan (2021)

    It’s not often that we see Jordan in the romance genre but after his performance, we are for sure ready to see him in more of these roles.

  • 6. Without Remorse (2021)

    Jordan plays a Navy SEAL in Without Remorse looking to seek revenge. In the film, Jordan proves that roles that utilize his athletic ability combined with his acting expertise remain strong skills in his wheelhouse.

  • 5. Creed II (2018)

    In the second installment of the Creed series, Jordan finds himself figuratively and (literally) defending his late father’s name against Viktor Drago. Drago’s father killed Apollo Creed in 1985’s Rocky IV. In this performance, Jordan was still able to bring the fire from the first film making Creed II a thrilling watch.

  • 4. Just Mercy (2019)

    Acting next to Jamie Foxx is not an easy feat, but Jordan was able to hold his own in the thought-provoking film Just Mercy. Released in 2019, Jordan plays an eager young lawyer with a Harvard degree looking to make substantial change in the justice system defending the wrongly convicted.

  • 3. Black Panther (2018)

    Although Jordan played T’Challa’s (Chadwick Boseman) enemy Killmonger in Black Panther, he was able to give an emotional and intriguing performance alongside his all-star castmates. He wasn’t a cartoon “bad guy”: he was an antagonist with motivations that many could identify with.

  • 2. Creed (2015)

    Creed made Jordan into a modern-day movie star with the start of his own franchise. Jordan stars alongside Rocky legend Sylvester Stallone and Tessa Thompson. This film marks the second time Ryan Coogler and Jordan team up as Coogler previously directed Fruitvale Station.

  • 1. Fruitvale Station (2013)

    Fruitvale Station is one of Jordan’s most moving performances. Based on the true story of Oscar Grant,the youth who was shot and killed by a BART police officer on Jan. 1, 2009 after he and his friends were pulled off a train at Oakland’s Fruitvale Station in connection with an alleged fight. The film marks Jordan’s big break into film and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler’s directorial debut.
