(NBC News) – People has named Michael B. Jordan the Sexiest Man Alive in 2020.
The magazine announced the “Black Panther” star won the honor Tuesday night.
The 33-year-old actor is one of Hollywood’s most eligible bachelors and keeps his love life under wraps. His Sexiest Man Alive win comes on the heels of musician John Legend’s recent reign.
It’s a cool feeling,” he said to People, about the title. “You know, everybody always made that joke, like, ‘Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get.’ But it’s a good club to be a part of.”
After working at a young age as a child model, Jordan wowed critics in the small but important role of Wallace in the HBO crime drama “The Wire.” He went on to join the cast of the ABC soap “All My Children” in 2003 — replacing his future “Black Panther” co-star, the late Chadwick Boseman.
Jordan played quarterback Vince Howard in the NBC drama “Friday Night Lights,” and earned more critical raves portraying shooting victim Oscar Grant in the 2013 biographical drama “Fruitvale Station.”
