Michael B Jordan Recalls “Cool Moments” With Keanu Reeves In 2001 Screen Debut, Hardball
Michael B Jordan made his screen debut at 13 in the 2001 baseball drama 'Hardball', alongside Keanu Reeves.
Michael B Jordan has praised Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne as his "heroes".
The 34-year-old actor was just 13 when he landed a role in Keanu's 2001 movie Hardball and he praised Keanu for being kind to him on and off set and introducing him to his Matrix co-star Fishburne.
He said: "The Matrix was such a big thing. The kids would goof around with Keanu, re-enacting scenes, like dodging bullets in slow motion. They were in awe of Keanu. All these kids were new and raw and had never made a film before."
And Brian was impressed with Michael's confidence at such a young age.
He said: "I remember him coming in the room and being super charismatic. He was very confident - but not arrogant - and extremely likable." — BANG SHOWBIZ
