Bryan Stevenson

One of the most powerful films you will see is Just Mercy, starring Michael B Jordan and Jamie Foxx.

It is based on the incredible true story of world renowned civil rights defence lawyer Bryan Stevenson. He works to free wrongly condemned death row prisoners.

Speaking on Plan B

Bryan told Sarina, on Saturday’s Plan B, that when he was first approached about the movie, he was sceptical but when he saw that everyone involved wanted to tell the real story – he was on board with it.

When Bryan was giving Michael B Jordan notes on how to play him, he told him the only place he needs to not be authentic is in losing his Creed and Black Panther abs.
