Early on in production for Without Remorse, Jordan says, he said he wanted to do as many stunts as possible.
Speaking to Collider, Jordan said he told director Stefano Sollima that he wanted to be involved in the action as much as possible.
He said, “That sure was something I looked at him, and I let him know that, ‘Hey, listen, I’m doing all my things.’
“And he was ecstatic to hear that we were on the same page … he wanted actors who could rock and do all their stunts.”

Jordan added, “And I did exactly the same thing, I felt exactly the same. So it was a match made in heaven when it came down to it. “
However, when it came to the car’s raging inferno, the 34-year-old actor revealed that he would never forget the scene he witnessed.
He revealed, “That is a day I would always remember. Yes. Yes, yes, it is. Yeah, man, it’s really hot.
“This is one of those things where you only really understand the intensity of the flames when you come across a car that is burning, and it is intense. To the point of scorching your hair, you know, your lashes and brows can get a little scorched, but at the same time, the adrenaline was rushing. “

As he tackled the danger of the scene, Jordan explained, “I haven’t thought too much about it.
‘I think if I thought about it too long, I might not have done it. So I just had to like, ‘Okay, cool. Let’s do this. Believe me, take me in. Let’s do it.’ And we did so it was fine. “
The star really fought the elements throughout the movie, as he also took part in an underwater scene during the movie.
And, true to his word, Jordan really did stay underwater for extended periods of time to take the photos that were required of him.
Speaking of the underwater scenes, Jordan continued, “I mean that was probably one of the more intense moments I had on set when it came to just the underwater training and stunts in those high, stressful situations.
“And being able to solve malfunctions and really do it alone. It was unbelievable. “
He added, “But we had an incredible stunt team that kept us safe and worked on this day after day to make sure we were prepared for what we were getting into.”
The star added in a separate interview, “I wanted to explore all the action options out there. The chance to be a bit more physical and perform my stunts in a real way. “
Jordan isn’t the first actor to play the legendary John Kelly. Previously, the character was played by Willem Dafoe in 1994 and Liev Schreiber in 2002.
However, he is the first black actor to take on the iconic role.
Jordan said about this with The Hollywood Reporter: “It is important that people see themselves in roles that they normally would not see.
“What that does to the next generation, to a child or someone who didn’t think that’s something they could achieve – now they’re thinking about it and daydreaming about it.”
Without Remorse is now available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
