The 32-year-old actor and producer told Vanity Fair:

“I remember when I first came to L.A., and me and my mom, we went to all these agencies trying to get representation and they passed on me—WME passed on me, CAA passed on me, Gersh, all these guys fu**ing passed on me.”

Jordan says he was about to quit when his The Wire co-star Andre Royo ran into him at an L.A. pool party:

“He was stressed out,” recounts Royo, 50. “He was like, ‘Yo, I’m not working enough, sh** is crazy, I think I’m going to go back to New York.’ And he was really on some ‘boo-hoo’ sh**. And I was like, ‘Yo dog, are you kidding me right now? You in your early 20s and you’re around motherfu**ers trying to feed families who ain’t working. Snap out of it.'”
