Michael B. Jordan Was ‘A Little Intimidated’ To Play Famed Lawyer Bryan Stevenson In ‘Just Mercy’

Michael B. Jordan had big shoes to fill while portraying Bryan Stevenson, the real-life lawyer and social justice activist at the center of the new film “Just Mercy.” “I was a little intimidated. To meet him, I was like, ‘Oh, this guy is really important. I just know how important he is to the community, to humanity. You don’t say that lightly,” he told Access Hollywood. “Just Mercy” hits theaters Dec. 25.
