    Basically

    You can tell he was just a regular dude. In fact he even said it. He was trying to play basketball when he was doing the Wire and was just trying to get some money.

    Once that went up in smoke he already had an acting resume and just stuck with it.

    I would say he’s closer to young Will without the over the top comedic acting/timing, rapping, etc.

    If he was to do something like a Bad Boys or a Men in Black that would probably put him over the top. He takes more serious roles then Will tho. He needs to headline a summer blockbuster though.

    I like both

    but Boyega realer than MBJ any day of the week ..... this is the dude that took Harrisson Ford to a Nigerian restaurant in the hood in south London .... says on national TV that he wants a black woman rather than try and be PC

    Always repped where he was from ..... one of the realest black actors ...period

    I think it would be dope if Ryan Coogler did a bad boys type action flick with MBJ and breh who played Easy E. And your right MBJ picks serious roles but imo he doesnt have the chops to truly stand out in those flicks. Creed was good because it showed a range of emotions (as in the story) so it is easy to hide his weaknesses with story and co actors.

    Don't agree.

    The summer blockbuster is where they throw the handsome(pawsus) white guys to prove they got next.
    And tons crash n burn n flop.
    I'd say he's doing it right, just as he is.
    Do good movies in the less crowded seasons, make bank n let the old white guys try to put on the young white guys they're fukking in the summertime melee.

    I'd skip that bloodbath myself if i were him. Lockdown Oct-Nov n Jan-March.

    Definitely disagree

    Will ran summer blockbusters for like a decade by himself. The Rock stays with a summer action banger and I think even Denzel dropped one this year.

    Blockbusters so far just have been on some group effort shyt with Marvel running the show.

    If Coogler and MBJ come up with a summer banger within the next few years (especially if BP2 is just as prolific as the first) then that shyt will be greenlit immediately and people will show up. Not like they would for Martin and Will but they would show up

    This. Boyega is already a big star and will keep growing. Not his fault about Finn.

    Paying for a rich white person's dinner doesn't equate to realness in my opinion, but whatever floats your boat breh.

    Funny how MBJ apparently 'connects with black audiences more' and 'more women want him' when Boyega went on live national tv and said he wanted a beautiful black woman while MBJ is notoriously :mjpls:

    Nobody cares about that though, we talking about their body of work.

    Jordan pretty much holds black men down in movies... usually with a black love interest as well.

    Boyega most noticeably is chasing white bytches around in space. He probably had to say that on national tv. If they had made Finn gay it was wraps for that dude with the black community

    Regardless, idgaf about their personal lives anyway. I watch their movies not who they fukkin

    I see you deliberately trying to miss the point so Ill break it down for you ...

    a lot of black people as soon as they achieve some sort of fame (especially actors) do the most to distance themselves from being black , we have all heard the expression "im just an actor that happens to be black not a black actor" ....

    Boyega is one actor who hasnt forgotten his roots and when he went to dinner with a hollywood A lister unlike 99.9% of black actors who would have taken him to some exclusive restaurant he kept it real and took him somewhere where he always went ...

    go research what he has said about being a black actor and being black then go research MBJ history .....

    Once again, I like both actors but Boyega is repping for black people IN REAL LIFE .....
