Michael-B-Jordan_lNo, not hoops legend Michael Jordan. Up-and-coming actor Michael B. Jordan!

The alum of All My Children and The Wire is joining Friday Night Lights as Vince, East Dillon’s resident troublemaker.

He quickly finds himself at odds with the team’s new pretty boy Luke (played by the just-cast Matt Lauria).

Like Lauria, Jordan is a series regular.
