WATCH: 'Fruitvale Station' Star Michael B. Jordan Talks to Indiewire's Awards Season Spotlight

As part of Indiewire’s ongoing Awards Season Spotlight, actor Michael B. Jordan discussed his role in Ryan Coogler’s “Fruitvale Station,” which has been scoring love from critics awards groups as a first-time feature, and for Jordan’s breakthrough performance. 

The film centers on the last 24 hours in the life of Oscar Grant (played by Jordan), who was shot point-blank by an Oakland BART police officer in 2009. Jordan’s co-star Octavia Spencer told Indiewire:

“Michael’s performance is analogous of a master gemcutter
polishing a rare diamond, intensely focused and precise, resulting in an
exquisite and sparkling jewel. Working with him was truly a gift.”

Check out some video segments from Jordan’s interview, below.
