, MICHAEL B. JORDAN is well-liked by his Executive Producers on FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS. The NBC drama wrapped shooting of its 5th and farewell season last fall. Since then, it’s no coincidence Jordan has joined the cast of NBC’s “PARENTHOOD”, playing Alex, Haddie Braverman’s (SARA RAMOS) current love interest. Parenthood’s head writer and EP is JASON KATIMS, who had the same role on FNL. He’ll also be featured this season on FOX’s “LIE TO ME”, a police drama also produced by IMAGINE TELEVISION whose EP is…DAVID NEVINS, also formerly of FNL.

Long in development and snagged in post-production is a feature film, RED TAILS, written by GEORGE LUCAS and starring CUBA GOODING, JR., TERRANCE HOWARD AND TRISTAN WILDS (90210). It’s the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, a squadron of African-American fighter pilots during WWII. The film is expected to be released later this year.

By the way, numerologists…and maybe because it’s CINCO de MAYO (5th day, 5th month), but…Jordan’s character, VINCE HOWARD, wears jersey number 5 for the East Dillon Lions. 5 is the sum of 2 and 3…the numbers worn on the jersey of his basketball Hall of Fame namesake. Both Jordans were also born in the month of February. Michael B’s DOB is 2-9-1987, which…added together equal 48, the current age of the former Chicago Bulls superstar. Another parallel…one MJ is the majority owner of the Charlotte BOBCATS, the other MJ quarterbacks a team nicknamed the LIONS. Meow, Gatos! Bid on one-of-a-kind Michael B.
