i can see it for michael b jordan.
he is trying to become a leading black wolf in hollywood.
a vix-bi sent me a really good article from the “new york times” between acting legend,
and up and coming legend,
michael b jordan.
the title of the article was “passing the torch”,
the “new york times” claims mbj is being compared as a “young denzel”.
so she wanted to read my thoughts on it.
i don’t think so.
why are we dead set on replacing our legends?
i don’t see white folks saying someone is the next robert de niro,
or leonardo dicaprio.
we always gotta be replacing someone in our community.
it’s really annoying.
once you say someone is the “new someone”,
the pressure is on and they often fail miserably.
you know i like michael b jordan,
and i love to see him (and that bawdy) on screen,
but he has a long way to go before he reaches denzel status.
denzel became “malcolm x”.
shiiiit he made me weep in “john q” in the damn movies.
i was looking like a damn fool up in there.
doesn’t denzel have a cub to “pass the torch” too?
one who acts?
john david washington.
he’s a pretty solid actor,
but he doesn’t have a solid resume as mbj.
from the interview,
i respect micheal’s hustle.
he is trying to make moves out here.
you can’t fault him for wanting to b great,
but he will be the next “micheal b jordan“ for me.
he has his own lane.
sterling k brown and chadwick boseman are bigger threats for him.
i could be wrong tho.
so i had to ask the foxhole…
Is Michael B Jordan in the running to be the next Denzel?
lowkey: you can tell denzel has no fucks to give from that article.
uncle d don’t play.
am i the only one who thinks denzel was just okay?
black vixens think he is fine af,
but he always just a handsome older wolf to me…
