Denzel Washington’s role in A Journal for Jordan is not on the screen — starring duties in the drama go to Michael B. Jordan. Instead, Washington’s contributions to the film are all behind the camera, as its director and producer. As such, Washington was intimately involved with the process of bringing the movie, based on a real-life memoir, to the screen.
