He's chatted about the latest episodes of Naruto on his social media account and is taking the next step to appear in the anime-influenced animated series Gen: Lock. Jordan sat down to talk about the web series and how anime has influenced his other career performances, including as boxer Creed in the Rocky spin-off films.
Rooster Teeth's gen:LOCK will star voice actor Kōichi Yamadera (Spike in Cowboy Bebop) alongside Hollywood stars like Jordan and Dakota Fanning. Rooster Teeth describes the story:
Fifty years in the future, an oppressive authoritarian force threatens to conquer the world. A daring team is recruited to pilot a new form of weaponized neuroscience that powers devastating mecha, but they must be willing to sacrifice everything to save the world.
The series will premiere on January 26.
