Michael B. Jordan Confirms He Auditioned For ‘Star Wars’

Speaking with the Associated Press, Michael B. Jordan followed the lead from Saoirse Ronan and admitted that he had read for a part in “Star Wars: Episode VII,” a rumor started by Latino-Review a few weeks ago.

Also like Ronan, Jordan downplayed the reading, saying that pretty much everyone in Hollywood has audition.

“I mean, everybody’s going in on this project. They’re trying to figure out what they want,” he said. “That’s another incredible franchise. It’s pretty crazy! … We’ll see how it happens. I don’t know how I can do everything.”

Jordan also mentioned that he didn’t audition for a particular role and that his test didn’t involve a lightsaber, as Ronan’s had.
