Jordan Wilder (born Jordy Michaels) is a main character on Famous In Love. He is portrayed by Keith Powers

He plays the role of Ed Kahn in the Locked movie. He dated Tangey Turner for several episodes, and shared real chemistry with her. However, when she found out about Nina and Jordan's love affair, she dumped him. 


Jordan has had issues with his mother, Brandy Michaels, since an early age. She was never an ideal caregiver for him, but they still had a relationship of sorts. Jordan said that she neglected to feed him at all, and take care of him, so he was left to take care of himself. During Jordan's childhood, as Brandy was being abused by her then-boyfriend, Jordan snapped and accidentally murdered him. His mother was then sent to prison for 5 years for the crime that he committed. Jordan changed his name from "Jordy Michaels" to "Jordan Wilder", and started over without her.

He created his entire career around the story that he never had a family and his mother died while he was young. When his mother was released, she blackmailed and extorted him for money in order to keep her being alive quiet.

Nina Devon "took care" of the situation by having his mother arrested on false pretenses, and when Jordan refused to post bail, Brandy gave the story to Barrett Hopper.
