Deontay Wilder may have created a big-time movie role for himself — because Michael B. Jordan tells us he LIKES the boxer’s idea of playing Clubber Lang’s son in “Creed 3.”
Remember, Wilder — the heavyweight champion of the world — recently told TMZ Sports he’s gunning for a Hollywood career … and suggested playing the offspring of Mr. T‘s famous character in “Rocky III.”
Hey, Michael B. is already playing Apollo Creed’s son … and “Creed II” was all about Ivan Drago’s son … so why not let Clubber’s kid get in on the action???
“It’s a good idea! It’s a cool idea,” Jordan told us in L.A. … while praising Deontay Wilder.
Michael B. told us the ‘Creed 3’ storyline is still up in the air — so it seems like Wilder has a real shot. Plus, Michael pointed out how Sylvester Stallone and his crew have always loved using real boxers in the ‘Rocky’ movies.
The one big issue … Michael pointed out Deontay (at 6’7″) is way bigger than Clubber Lang … since Mr. T is only 5’10”.
But, don’t worry … our photog came up with a solution right on the street.
Michael B. Jordan really doesn’t want to believe Travis Scott‘s joining Maroon 5 for the Super Bowl 53 Halftime Show … because he thinks it goes against what Trav should be standing for.
Much like Al Sharpton — who flat out calledScott a hypocrite when we talked to him — Jordan implies Travis is betraying the boycott against the NFL for how it’s treated Colin Kaepernick and its handling of the kneeling controversy.
MBJ says, “We’re still trying to stand behind something right now,” and suggests by taking the Super Bowl gig … the rapper’s setting the cause back.
The ‘Creed’ star’s still holding out hope it’s just a rumor, though … but as far as we know, it’s totally legit.
