Ten Things You Didn't Know About Michael B. Jordan
He Grew Up in New Jersey
Though he was born in Santa Ana, California, Jordan spent his formative years in Newark, New Jersey. He attended Newark Arts High School, a performing arts school that counts Savion Glover, Tisha Campbell-Martin and Kat DeLuna among its alumni. "If I had the chance to go to high school again, I would," said Jordan, but added, "I didn't grow up in the suburbs. I'm from a bad area."
