As part of Indiewire's ongoing Awards Season Spotlight, actor Michael B. Jordan discussed his role in Ryan Coogler's "Fruitvale Station," which has been scoring love from critics awards groups as a first-time feature, and for Jordan's breakthrough performance. 

The film centers on the last 24 hours in the life of Oscar Grant (played by Jordan), who was shot point-blank by an Oakland BART police officer in 2009. Jordan's co-star Octavia Spencer told Indiewire:

"Michael's performance is analogous of a master gemcutter polishing a rare diamond, intensely focused and precise, resulting in an exquisite and sparkling jewel. Working with him was truly a gift." 

Check out some video segments from Jordan's interview, below.
