What is it about men in uniform? Subconsciously, the appearance of a working man appeals to our sense of desire for a man who provides for his family. There’s a reason why a man’s ego is inherently tied to his employment and employability. We love the following celebs. You’ve seen them covered in our various editions of Evening Eye Candy, but we also especially love them in the official roles they play.

Jesse Williams plays Dr. Jackson Avery on the ABC series Grey’s Anatomy. He makes a very fine surgeon, doesn’t he? We know his sex appeal definitely helped him catapult from a temporary character to full blown cast member. But sorry ladies, the real life Jesse Williams tied the knot in September to his long-time love.
From Dropping It Like It’s Hot To Oscars: 10 Celebrities Who Got Their Video Vixen On Before Making It Big (Fellas Too!)
It’s not easy getting to the top. Or heck, near the top for that matter. And before some of these celebs could do very big things, they had to pay their dues and do what they needed to for experience, and of course, money. When you’re trying to hustle in Hollywood, nobody’s too good to do a little somethin’ somethin’ in a music video to pay the rent. Especially when you’re a so-called “model.” Check out these 10 celebrities who got face time in music videos before they could move to the big screen.
Boris Kodjoe – “Red Light Special”
Before he met and married Nicole Ari Parker and had two kids, had a defunct TV show, and was named one of People‘s “Most Beautiful People In The World,” Kodjoe was a prostitute.
In a music video. Ha! I had you fooled didn’t I? But seriously, the former model-turned-actor showed up in the TLC video, “Red Light Special” to lick T-Boz’s foot and make the boa look on a man fierce! I also wasn’t mad at the ab action and striptease he tried to pull near the end of the video. I can’t see Kodjoe doing this now, but it wouldn’t hurt for him to get back out there and drop it like it’s hot in a video. What else does he really have going on?
Dr. McDreamy, a.k.a. Patrick Dempsey isn’t the only fine actor on ABC’s hit drama “Grey’s Anatomy.” The half-Swedish, half-African American Jesse Williams who plays surgeon Jackson Avery could easily give him a run for his money, but only one of these handsome men is still on the market and it’s not the latter.
On Saturday, Jesse, 31, tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend, Aryn Drake-Lee, 32, in Los Angeles in a romantic evening ceremony, according to PEOPLE.
“Jesse was beaming with joy throughout the entire ceremony,” a wedding guest told the mag. “It was the perfect night with lots of smiling, laughing and emotion. You could feel the love they have for each other. They’re madly in love!”
Jesse and his real estate broker wife have been together for more than five years. They met during his pre-”Grey’s” days when Jesse was just a schoolteacher in New York, not considered one of the hottest celebrities in the biz, although I bet plenty of his middle and high school students were in love with him.
The fact that Jesse didn’t go all Hollywood and snatch up a new industry woman when he got his big break makes this union even more sweet. Congrats to the newlyweds!

Imagine how much easier it would be to take your behind to the doctor’s office if your doctor looked anything like Jesse Williams. The blue-eyed beauty has been turning a lot of women’s heads since he started playing Dr. Jackson Avery on Grey’s Anatomy. But I’ve been head-over-heels for boo boo since I saw him in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants–without pants. Williams is damn near perfect with his 100-watt smile, Hot abs, blue eyes and high intellect. He once taught American Studies, African Studies and English at a public high school in Philly. But enough talking, it’s time to do some clicking and ogling!
Before the Grammys kicked off, The Roots hosted their 7th annual jam session at The Music Box in L.A. The band was joined by some of our favorite artists, many of whom performed, as well as Hollywood actors. See who made an appearance in the pictures below:
Every once in a while, sophisticated women of society need to entertain their eyes with some appetizing, handsome men (who of course were only placed on this earth for the sole purpose of catering to us queens). Thus, this week, we’ve selected a fine piece of shirtless goodness to whet the palates of our distinguished madames, and help your week run just a little bit more smoothly. Without further ado, we present to you, Madame Noire’s Mouthwatering Man of the Week…
