Michael B. Jordan has confirmed that he auditioned for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII. The Chronicle and Fruitvale Station star confirmed with the AP that he's up for a role in the new Star Wars film and auditioned, and also is being eyed for Fantastic Four and Independence Day 2.
Speaking of Star Wars, Jordon said he was not asked to demonstrate his skill with a lightsaber as Saoirse Ronan did and said, "I mean, everybody's going in on this project. They're trying to figure out what they want. That's another incredible franchise. It's pretty crazy! ...We'll see how it happens. I don't know how I can do everything."
He also addressed the Fantastic Four rumor which would see him play Johnny Storm, noting, "Definitely interested in the project. [Director] Josh Trank is a buddy of mine."
Finally, he said that Independence Day 2 is a possibility, saying, "if that came true, that would be cool, too,"
