Zack Morris made Saturday mornings must-see-TV while on Saved By The Bell, and luckily for fans, he still looks great–even if he ditched the blonde ‘do. He’s also still working hard for the money, starring on the show Franklin & Bash on TNT, and he’s been starring on that (as Peter Bash) since 2011.

  • Tee Elyse

    Big Daddy Kane’s STANCE tho????? EVERYTHING!!!!

  • Zoe2133

    I used to love me some Eddie Torrez and some Dorian from A Different World

    • newdnewd

      me too, but they are definately looking different.

  • empresstala

    Gary looked so good back in the day w/ his dreads

  • Caramel Delight

    Hmm… I had crushes on most of these men but Lawrence Fishburne…… Not!! lol. He was more of my mom’s type. Ralph wasn’t on my list either as a kid but everyone else was. Especially Larenz Tate. I LOVED that man. He looked so good in Love Jones and he still looks good now. Mmm….

  • Yo Momma

    who in the hell crush list is this???? Most of these guys damn sure was not on my list. Ralph, Al and Omar, but Larry Fishburne???? Really?

    • B.

      lololol. Yeah, I don’t know a single person who was feeling Larry.

      • Whitney

        Did y’all see Hoodlum?! He was all manner of gorgeous back in the day!

        • B.

          See Whitney, you are the one person they were writing to. lol. Girl, yes I did see it, and no that did not sway me. Lawrence has looked 40 years old since he was like 10. Never thought he was handsome.

  • Chanda

    I use to have a crush on Brian from Color Me Badd (the guy with the short hair). They showed him on a 90’s Countdown special on VH-1 a while back. Let’s just say life happens lol.
    There where a LOT of fine, se xy rappers from the 80’s, early 90’s you better believe it. It wasn’t just Big Daddy Kane. Y’all could do a list on that alone (if you dig deep enough). This new generation of rappers don’t hardly have anything.

    • B.

      Girl, I had a big ol crush. You couldn’t tell me anything about Bryan. Now, not so much. lol. Life sure did happen. It has not been kind to him.

  • Angela R. Ingram

    Mekhi looks better with age.

  • hollyw

    Man, Big Daddy Kane and Lorenz Tate look the EXACT same! For Mekhi, all I’ll say is…it took about his third scene in Divergent for me to realize that was actually him. Ijs.

  • www.swagscent.com

    I WOULD PREFER BLACK WOMEN NOT VISIT OUR WEBSITE. PLEASE DON’T RESPOND AND THANKS FOR YOUR COOPERATION.

    • hollyw

      ^Smh haahaa!^

    • Mars Sirius

      What a fake gimmick to get people to click on your link. That’s g@y!!!

    • Then what you doing spaming on a site for black women if you don’t want us on your sh*tty little site, retard? YOU can get the hell off this site and rot somewhere.

    • guest

      Then get your @$$ off this website byotches.

  • PolkaDots

    Glad to know D’Angelo is touring — that first guy looks like he could be an actor. Maybe he should consider it.

    • ms stacye

      I saw him in concert in 2012….it was EVERYTHING! I truly enjoyed this list Madame Noire…with the exception of Shazaa and Bumper, all of my old(and damn near forgotten) crushes still got it going on. I needed that smile; makes my workday better :)

    • B.

      I am too, but more than that, I’m glad he’s looking healthier. I’m really happy for him, now, I need another damn album.

      • PolkaDots

        Yeah, I thought he had stage fright for a long time – that was the word in VA. He was messing up a lot – doing drugs (WEED) and such. Hopefully he is just getting his feet wet so he can put out something new.

  • Alecia Murphy

    Everytime I see Allen Payne, I hear Charmaine’s voice from A Different World, “Oh Lance!”

    • Suchalady

      LMAO me too!

    • B.

      Every, damn, time. Then I hear, “am I my brother’s keeper?” lol

    • B.

      Every, damn, time. Then I hear, “am I my brother’s keeper?” lol

    • Dev2008

      Lol, now I can’t get it out of my head.

  • NamelessDreamer

    Omg I loooooved Zack Morris lol he still looks good

    • Missy

      Yes yes yes!

    • Sherry

      And he dated the black girl, Lark Voorhies, for a few years. The other two white girls were jealous.

  • Michael DeLorenzo and Gary did not age well, but Mekhi Phifer and Larez Tate and Morris Chestnut still looking good these days.

    • hollyw

      Lorenz Tate and Morris Chestnut, yes. Mekhi…not so much.

    • B.

      I wanted to like Malik, back in the day, but his damn dry lips used to annoy me so much. Nobody can tell me anything about Larenz. That’s is still my crush. Morris is just a hot, chocolate, cutie. Mekhi and Omar were cute years ago and I still like them, but they don’t do anything for me anymore, well, Omar more than Mekhi. Love me some Dylan and Brandon. But this site knows they’re wrong for Larry Fishburne. Who’s mama made them add him to the list?

No thanks
