The Human Torch is arguably the role that put Chris Evans on the map. It propelled him from pretty boy actor with some memorably roles to a leading man.
Strangely, Michael B Jordan is in a similar boat. He’s had some memorably performances and he’s been around for a while, but he’s not a house hold name. Granted after the new Fantastic Four film, he will be.
Chris Evans recently had some kind things to say about Jordan.
“It’s so funny, you almost feel precious over the role that you don’t want someone else to do it. But when you hear someone phenomenal is doing it, it’s very exciting like you almost can’t wait.”
Then he went on the elaborate:
“I couldn’t even give that guy any advice if I wanted, that guy is so good. It’s exciting to see what he’s going to do, because I know he’s going to reinvent it in a way that I could never have imagined. It’s almost like we’re sharing, the character is ours. I feel like I’m connected with him in a way, It’s a nice feeling.”
