Michael B. Jordan
Date of Birth: February 9 1987
Best known for: HBO's "The Wire," NBC's "Friday Night Lights," "Fruitvale Station"
Why: Jordan is a hot commodity with his performance in "Fruitvale Station" these days, but if they really wanted to give a fresh, outside-the-box spin on the character, they'd be so lucky to get an actor of his talent. Certainly race shouldn't be a concern, and it hasn't in other quarters; there are rumors his name has been tossed around for the Human Torch in the upcoming "Fantastic Torch" reboot...
Why not: …which, if so, could put the kibosh on his prospects for a part like this. And there are also surely those who would rather have their classic blonde-haired, caucasian version of Barry Allen on the screen. I say think higher but what do I know?
