Michael B. Jordan will be lending his lady-loved voice to a new anime series,”gen:LOCK,” for Rooster Teeth.
In the new series, Jordan will be playing Julian Chase. The show is described as “50 years in the future, where an oppressive authoritarian force threatens to conquer the world. So a daring team is recruited to pilot a new form of weaponized neuroscience that powers devastating mecha. However, this team must be willing to sacrifice everything to save the world,” according to Shadow and Act.
“He is willing to lay his life on the line for the greater good. He had a lot of heroic qualities to him that made it easy for me to be like ‘cool, I want to voice this guy,’” Jordan told SyfyWire about his reason for picking the role.
The first two episodes of gen:LOCK will premiere on Jan. 26 on Rooster Teeth, which is available on iOS, Andriod, Xbox One, and Apple TV. (RoosterTeeth.com’s memberships start at $4.99 a month.) Watch the trailer for the series up top.
