Moral misgivings nearly made Michael B. Jordan turn down a role in 'Fahrenheit 451.'
In the film, Jordan plays a book burning fireman who hunts down a gang of underground freethinkers.
Jordan thought about the socio-political implications of the role.
The movie discusses use of police force, civil liberties and the treatment of minorities.
---I was hesitant about taking the project due to the authoritarian nature of the character.
