He’s won several independent awards for his role in 2013′s “Fruitvale Station,” the highly-talked about drama about the real-life murder of teenager Oscar Grant. He can also now be seen in the comedy “That Awkward Moment,” alongside Zac Efron (“High School Musical”) and Miles Teller (“The Spectacular Now”). But in 2015, Jordan may be stepping into his biggest role yet.
