You know him from hit shows like The Wire and Friday Night Lights and top films like Creed, Fruitvale Station and Marvel’s Fantastic 4, actor Michael B. Jordan is on the move.

The actor caught up with me on Friday’s Scoop B Radio podcast and chatted about the opportunity of starring in the reboot of Marvel’s Fantastic Four, his collabo with Sprite and their commitment to new film-makers and having mentors in Hollywood.

As the saying goes: each one, teach one. While he’s growing in his career and offering solid advice, he’s also leaned on and accepted the advice of others.

“Yeah man, I’ve been blessed to have a lot of people kind of been able to mentor me,” Michael B. Jordan told me. “Jamie Foxx, John Singleton, I’ve had some really important people; Oprah Winfrey, sit down and give me really important advice over the years.”
