Michael B. Jordan, the Black Panther actor shattering retainers across the nation, wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday that his production company Outlier Society will be adding an inclusion rider for any film it produces.

The inclusion rider, proposed by Stacy Smith at the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative at University of Southern California, calls for the 30 minor speaking roles in an average film to be cast as reflective of the demography where the story takes place.

While the rider has not been formally drawn out, many actors have expressed interest to Smith in adding it to their future contracts after Frances McDormand gave it a shout-out in her 2018 Oscars speech.

Other celebrities, including Brie Larson, have also committed to the rider when it is ready.

I’m committed to the Inclusion Rider. Who’s with me?
