Michael B. Jordan has been named People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2020. Which means, finally, something has gone right this year.

He'll also be working opposite directors Denzel Washington and David O. Russell in the near future.
The actor joined the Black Lives Matter movement this summer to call for more diversity in Hollywood.
On being named 2020's Sexiest Man Alive, Michael B. Jordan told People (via EW): "It's a cool feeling.
"You know, everybody always made that joke, like, 'Mike, this is the one thing you’re probably not going to get.' But it’s a good club to be a part of."
