According to Latino Review on Oct. 10, actor Michael B. Jordan has confirmed at a celebrity social gathering that he did audition for a certain role in J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars VII" film. One thing to note, the role had nothing to do with him wielding a lightsaber.
Last month it was rumored that he may be auditioning for a role in the movie, but now it appears that Jordan has made his audition experience known.
Also, another interesting tidbit of information by Jordan regarding the reboot of the "Fantastic Four" film indicated by Variety magazine mentioned that he is in contention to play the role of Johnny Storm. This statement had been made by "Chronicle" director Josh Trank.
“Definitely interested in the project. Josh Trank is a buddy of mine".
Of course, Chris Evans was the original Johnny Storm in both "Fantastic Four" and "Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer", now with the reboot it seems as if there may be a new actor. That being said there is no telling what the next slew of actors could be.
