Peter Fenzel and Matthew Wrather overthink a video of the actor Jonathan Majors giving a speech praising and celebrating his friend and colleague Michael B. Jordan, on the occasion of Jordan’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame being unveiled. They discuss the moving sincerity of their friendship, the place of oratory among actors (just around the corner from where the Oscars are held), the antithetical structure of the speech, and some resonant and touching moments in it, each of which creates a world in a sentence or two.
