Michael B. Jordan is looking to make us laugh in the new year. The actor will play Mikey, a guy desperate for love, in the upcoming comedy That Awkward Moment.

The best-friend comedy follows three guys (Jordan, Zac Efron and Miles Teller) who’re struggling to get back into the dating scene after a long absence. Things prove to be harder than originally thought for the trio when love bites them in the rear end.

Jordan will kick off 2014 with a bang given his recent success in this summer’s breakout drama, Fruitval Station, which received glowing reviews.

Check out the new trailer above. That Awkward Moment opens January 31st.
