Michael B. Jordan has teamed up with Rooster Teeth for the upcoming series ‘gen:LOCK.’ The series premieres on January 26th, so naturally there are plenty of promos. This promo, however, goes beyond the generic “did you have fun on set” question. In a clip from the Rooster Teeth Podcast, Jordan is asked a real hard-hitter – can you get water wet?
Jordan sat down with series creator Gray G. Haddock ahead of the series premiere. We don’t get to see much of the interview beyond this short clip. Rather than discuss the action or animation of gen:LOCK, Haddock gets right into the water-wet question, previously asked on the podcast.
“I say no – I have a firm opinion on this one,” said Jordan. “I feel like, in order to be wet, you have to be dry first… water’s not wet. It’s a liquid.”
It’s an interesting question, to be sure. The premise of “is water wet” isn’t as interesting as whether water can get WETTER. Water’s inherently wet, so can it get wetter? Jordan’s answer makes as much sense as any other answer. However, podcast host Gustavo Sorola then digs into whether there’s a dry liquid. Perhaps when the full podcast airs, we’ll get something closer to a definitive answer.
Fifty years in the future, an oppressive authoritarian force threatens to conquer the world. A daring team is recruited to pilot a new form of weaponized neuroscience that powers devastating mecha, but they must be willing to sacrifice everything to save the world. The series stars Michael B Jordan, Dakota Fanning, Maisie Williams, and David Tennant.
What role the wetness of water plays in gen:LOCK remains to be seen.
