1997. That was the year that I first made Wesley Jonathan my imaginary boo in my head after I locked eyes on him when he was the star of the NBC sitcom City Guys. It was the “urban” version of Saved By The Bell and the show was what I flocked to every Saturday morning, too ready to sing the “Roll With The City Guys” theme song as the show started.
We’re far from 1997 at this point, but somehow, some way, Wesley Jonathan is still fine as that “thang.” In fact, in all that time, he’s become a fitness fiend, and his six pack, plump pecs and tight arms show off all his hard work. These days, aside from working out on the beach, Jonathan is back on television, co-star of the popular TV Land sitcom, The Soul Man with Cedric the Entertainer and Niecy Nash. He’s also expecting a child and had this to say about his thoughts on fatherhood:
“The most frightening thing about expecting a child is whether or not you’re going to be a good parent. Are you going to be able to raise a decent human being and citizen of mankind? The other fear is, God forbid, losing your child to some accident or some crazy madness. God has blessed us to be able to procreate, [and so we have to] let instincts and mother nature take its course. Everything should be alright.”
And he’s going to be a great, and super fine dad! Check out all the reasons why we still crush on Jonathan in our gallery.
Get to know “For Better or Worse” cutie Brad James. Even before snagging the role of Todd on the Tyler Perry show, James was already all over our TV screens, showing off his talents while appearing in ads for everyone from Walmart, Blackberry and AutoTrader.com. The former Marine is now a series regular on a hit TV show and starring in TV movies and films with some very talented veterans. James just did his thing alongside Tatyana Ali and Charles S. Dutton in the TV movie Comeback Dad, and was in the movie Prisoners last year with Viola Davis, Terrence Howard, Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal. In an interview with Ebony, the Augusta, Georgia native spoke of how he broke into the industry:
“I was walking in Atlanta and a woman stopped me and asked me to attend an audition,” he shares. “I was chosen for a part, but she wasn’t. We still became friends.” After a small chuckle, James adds: “Acting is something I always wanted to do. But I didn’t know how to get started in Augusta.”
Things clearly worked out well for the actor and director, who, in case you haven’t noticed, is quite the looker! That’s why we’ve picked him as our Evening Eye Candy of the week. Check out more of his good looks in our gallery and share your thoughts below!
Get to know a little something about the very handsome Brit rapper by the name of Tinie Tempah. Born and raised in London, Patrick Chukwuemeka Okogwu (where my fellow Nigerians at!?) has quite the fan base across the pond, even winning Best International Act from the UK during the 2011 BET Awards. He’s worked with a wide range of people and is known for his sharp sense of style (and his uber muscular body). But like a true Naija boy, he’s all about furthering his education, and plans to try to when he gets some time (and a few more millions):
“I definitely want to be in a financial position where I can head off to Cambridge or Oxford or somewhere. I would study something like music management or something extremely random like physics, which no-one would expect, as I like challenges.”
Not only does he have brains, and a British accent, but he also has a body too! And did we mention that he often wears a very se*y beard? Yep! We’re liking what we’re seeing. Check out more of what Mr. Tempah has to offer on the next few pages and let us know what you think.
If you haven’t heard of the upcoming film Dear White People, where have you been? The satirical drama (and comedy actually), set to hit theaters on October 17, follows a group of black students who attend an Ivy League school, and the realities of racism and foolishness that they bring to light after an “African-American themed” party is thrown by white students on campus. Actor Marque Richardson is one of the stars of the controversial but colorful film, and while many are excited to see the it when it finally comes out, some fans are super excited to see more of Richardson. His name might not be familiar, but he’s been in a little bit of everything with everybody over the years: “The Bernie Mac Show,” “ER,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “True Blood,” and most recently, “The Newsroom.” After his star-making turn in DWP, I’m sure we will be seeing more of him. Until then, get a glimpse of the good looks of Mr. Richardson below, and make sure you check out the hilarious trailer for Dear White People on the last slide.
When Prince Fielder graced the pages of ESPN The Magazine‘s 2014 Body Issue, there were a combination of opinions being thrown around. Some thought he looked out of shape and didn’t need to be featured, and then there were others who felt that his body was built just fine for his sport (he’s a first baseman for the Texas Rangers). And then there was that other group, comprised mostly of women, who said things like this on social media about the body Fielder built:
“Beard & Belly, LOVE It!”
“Lawd Jesus! He works in mysterious ways!”
“So I just fell in love with Prince Fielder”
“Can I take him home???? I am in love!”
As one woman put it, there’s something very s*xy about a big man with a big body and an even bigger smile. So we agree with the ladies and not the haters: Prince Fielder is a cutie. Check out him, and our other picks for heavy and handsome men we love, because we like having a little somethin’ somethin’ to hold on to…
Model and actor Keston Karter is, for lack of a better word, hella fine! (Sorry, but it needed to be said and we know you’ll agree with us). The cutie has had his good looks featured in music videos (like LeToya Luckett’s “Good To Me”) and on a variety of TV shows (including reality TV programs). Karter was born in Trinidad/Tobago and raised in New York City. He has a love for music (he is a pro at the trumpet and the steel drum) and the theater, and the ladies have love for him! On his Instagram and Facebook accounts, the compliments come pouring in, and you will see why. Check out the gorgeous-ness of Mr. Karter, this week’s delicious evening eye candy, and let us know if you like what you see.
He’s obviously very talented, but Mr. Martin is also very attractive. Just ask the folks drooling over his pictures on Instagram. We wanted to help you get more acquainted with the beauty of this man, so we decided to pick him as our evening eye candy of the week. Check him out in all his ab-a-licious glory and let us know if he’s your cup of tea. Clearly we’re already big fans of him…
It’s World Cup time! Whether you’re rooting for a specific team (go Nigeria!), or you have no idea what’s going on with this year’s competition–or any FIFA World Cup for that matter, you can always look forward to seeing some good looking men! We did some looking around and found footballers of all different backgrounds who are lean and lovely. So here are 10 men participating in this year’s FIFA World Cup who are definite cuties, and this week’s evening eye candy.
What We Like: The abs, on abs, on abs. Ronaldo (a forward) is a solidly-built dude and is currently dominating the game, killing it in underwear ads (for Armani) and making the ladies swoon.
Who else watched Being Mary Jane this season and couldn’t get enough of Omari Hardwick’s delicious self? Turns out that Hardwick has too much banging body and beauty for one show, so now he’s going to show off all that goodness and talent on the new Starz series, Power, which already has critics talking. But what I like most about Hardwick is that he’s talented in more than just acting. He used to play football (hence the body), and he’s an award-winning poet. Seriously, homeboy took part in the National Poetry Slam before. He’s a gift to the eyes and the ears! To celebrate his new show (where he plays James “Ghost” St. Patrick, owner of a hot NYC nightclub…and a drug dealer), which starts tomorrow, we’re showing love to one hunk of a man. Enjoy this eye candy gallery, as I’m sure it will make your day.
That voice! Those eyes! Those lips! That body! Yep, singer Luke James is a keeper. The New Orleans born and bred singer is known for his songs “I Want U” and “Make Love To Me” (don’t mind if I do!) and also for his songwriting abilities (he’s penned songs for Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears). His voice, with the crazy range he has, makes the ladies melt, and keeps them posting these type of messages on his Instagram page in admiration:
“I love & live you”
“My man is The a Bomb”
“You drive me wild. I don’t think I’ve ever had any man in my dreams as much as you star in mine”
Yeah, it’s that deep for some people.
Check out our gallery of his good looks and let us know, as always, if he’s your cup of tea.
