Michael B. Jordan Says He "Definitely Bombed" an Audition for J.J. Abrams' 'Star Wars'
Published May 07, 2021Michael B. Jordan is, without question, an enormous movie star with plenty of venerable credits under his belt — including, possibly, an upcoming Superman movie. One franchise he missed out on, however, was J.J. Abrams' series of Star Wars reboots.
In a new interview with Variety, Jordan admitted that he absolutely blew it when auditioning for The Force Awakens. In fact, he said he "definitely bombed" the audition.
"I think it was I couldn't wrap my brain around some of the sides because you know when you're reading for these high-level projects, there's never really any specificity in the sides," he said. "Everything's like super vague; everything is in secret. Reading through, I just couldn't connect it. I definitely bombed that one for sure."
Of course, Jordan's career is doing just fine. His latest film is the Tom Clancy adaptation Without Remorse.
