Michael B. Jordan no doubt knows his onions when it comes to his works in the movie industry, given his versatility and acting range that has gained him scores of accolades.
Now, he is set to be honored in the highest regard, with none other than a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, ahead of the release of his latest production, “Creed III.”
Michael B. Jordan Will Be Honored With A Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star On March 1
On Tuesday, March 1, Jordan will be adding a new medal to his awards collection as he will be awarded a Hollywood Walk of Fame star, joining thousands of fellow honorees. Variety exclusively reported the news via Twitter using a head-to-waist picture of the good-looking actor wearing a longsleeved black vest and looking seriously at the camera.
The comments section was naturally filled with congratulations, especially since the “Black Panther” actor is set to be honored after recently clocking 36. One fan gushed, “This really is his Jordan year,” while another declared, “He has had a terrific career and made very smart choices on what he does. Quality over quantity.”
According to The Hollywood Walk of Fame‘s official website, the honorary path has over 2,700 stars and is located on Hollywood Blvd from Gower to La Brea and on Vine Street from Sunset to Yucca. Before celebrities can be given a star, they have to be nominated, and that can be done by anyone, including a fan who has been permitted and filled out the necessary papers.
Upon selection, the sponsorship fee required is $50,000, though subject to change, and it is used to “pay for the creation and installation of the star, as well as maintenance of the Walk of Fame.” Moreover, there are six categories for nominations, and a nominee must fit into any or be active in the entertainment industry before they can be chosen.
Following the nomination, the recipient has about two years to schedule their ceremony. If it is not done within the period, the nom will expire, and another application has to be submitted. For deceased celebrities considered for nominations, one posthumous award is given annually with a two-year waiting period following the demise.
In addition, the Walk of Fame committee accepts only official applications for nominations without regard for signatures, phone calls, emails, or other petitions. In a year, an average of thirty stars are put forward, while stars are voted in once every June. There is also a $250 application fee for every application submission every two years.
After payment, the application will be active for two years; if a nominee is not selected within that period, a new application can be sent, or one can request a letter of reinstatement for the application. As for the stars, they are made of Terrazzo and brass, while several face separate ways to allow those walking to have an easy view from all directions.

Before the news of Jordan being honored with the highly coveted star was announced, he was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, causing fans — majorly females — to go into a frenzy over his ripped body.
The feat came ahead of the premiere of “Creed III,” and Jordan took to his social media fans to share the images from the magazine cover, alongside a message that partly read, “Creating a chapter in Adonis’ journey has helped me realize the strength in myself and being a master of my own universe.”
As seen in the uploaded snaps, fans were blessed with a topless view of the producer, highlighting his sculpted chest and arms. Unsurprisingly, they could not help but rave in the comments with multiple remarks about his “Creed physique” and tons of fire emojis.
The ‘All My Children’ Actor Remembers Late Chadwick Boseman In Candid Interview
Last week, while on “The View” to promote “Creed III,” his directorial debut, Jordan spoke about his lifelong connection to the late Chadwick Boseman, who starred opposite him in “Black Panther.” The pair shared a deep bond off-screen.
He recalled the moment he and the “21 Bridges” actor created a lifelong bond, saying it happened before they watched the Marvel movie together for the first time. In his words, “There was a moment on the press tour — we were backstage, we were in London, and we were getting ready to watch the movie for the first time together.”
The entertainer continued, “And we looked at each other, and we were like, you know, ‘we’re connected for the rest of our lives.’ I just remember sitting there and having a real connection, a moment with him.”
At the time, the late movie star had not gone public about his battle with colon cancer, and Jordan also had no idea, causing him to feel utterly devastated when things unfolded the way they did. Nevertheless, Jordan lauded the “Marshall” star for being a “hard worker” and staying dedicated to his career until his final moments.
