“Creed” actor Michael B. Jordan will be featured prominently in NBA 2K17.
You know him from movies and TV but actor Michael B. Jordan will be branching out into a new medium.
2K announced Friday that Jordan will be a key character in NBA 2K17’s My Career mode.
Jordan, who you probably know from Creed and The Wire, will play the role of a promising NBA player named Justice Young, who befriends the user’s career mode player and assists with on-court and off-court decisions.
Jordan’s script for the role was over 700 pages long, according to the Associated Press. He also slipped into a motion-capture suit to track his mannerisms, which Jordan likened to acting in a play.
The game will be released on Sept. 20.
