Michael B. Jordan is changing the narrative when it comes to the characters he chooses to play. 

In a recent interview with US Weekly, the 32- year-old actor stated that he will no longer accept roles where his character dies and that the decision came from his mother. “I never thought about what my mom went through seeing her son die so many times and how she would cry so hard and it would tear me up, and when I got older and matured and started looking at things, I was like, ‘Man, I can’t do this anymore,” he continued “Part of the reason why I almost refused a lot of roles was because I can’t die anymore.” 

Jordan wants his audience to get “conditioned” to seeing his character live throughout the entire movie and into the credits.
