He was surrounded by friends Jonathan Majors and Ryan Coogler: Michael B. Jordan Earns Hollywood Star on Walk of Fame

Michael B Jordan was highly praised for his remarkable transition from man to god as he was celebrated with a star on the renowned Hollywood Walk of Fame. The eminent American actor and director humbly accepted the honor and celebrated its significance for the black community.
Jordan started his acting career under the mentorship of Ryan Coogler with Fruitvale Station (2013). The two went on to collaborate multiple times, including on Marvel’s biggest success Black Panther. They have also worked together in two of the Creed films, with Coogler as the director and Jordan playing a starring role, while Creed III saw Jordan donning the director’s hat for the first time. On the occasion of his Walk of Fame ceremony in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Coogler and Jordan’s Creed III co-star Jonathan Majors made touching remarks.

At the end (of the Hercules myth) he goes 12 rounds and the gods come down and they take him to Mount Olympus, and he transforms from man to deity from, temporary to eternal,” he said.

“Today, brother, you go from man to god. You sit amongst Olympus.”

Jordan praised both Coogler and Majors in his own speech, as well as thanking his family and reflecting on his own professional journey.

“I’m extremely humbled and grateful to be here,” he said.

“It’s not lost on me on how special this moment is and what this represents to our community. So, from the bottom of my heart, I want to say thank you.

Apart from his successful body of work, Jordan has also been honored as an industry leader with his initiative towards bringing in positive changes in Hollywood through his acting and philanthropy. In 2016, he started his own production company Outlier Society with the intention to produce an inclusive line-up of varied stories and voices. He then created more job opportunities for those belonging to marginalized backgrounds or communities by introducing Outlier Society Fellowship, supported by the Obama Foundation and My Brother’s Keeper, in 2019. Later, in July 2020, Jordan in association with Color of Change launched the #ChangeHollywood initiative to promote anti-racist content and support the authentic stories and talents of the black community.
His influential presence has earned him recognition from esteemed platforms like Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020, and People’s Sexiest Man Alive 2020. Now, Jordan’s 2,751st star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame can be located at 6201 Hollywood Boulevard in the Motion Pictures category.
