The ‘Black Panther’ star graces the 2020 cover of the magazine’s annual special issue, which hits stands Friday.
Jordan started his career as a child actor in TV shows like All My Children and rose steadily though Hollywood until a breakout performance in the 2013 social justice drama “Fruitvale Station.”
In 2015 he starred in the Rocky boxing sequel Creed and three years later took on villain Erik Killmonger opposite the late Chadwick Boseman in Black Panther.
“It’s a cool feeling,” Jordan told the magazine. “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.”
Last year the actor was also included in an online gallery of the hottest eligible bachelors. And this is the first time Jordan has been named Sexiest Man Alive.
