Nope, the saying “mmm mmm good” is not just for Campbell’s Soup. Some of the sexiest black brothas in Hollywood are hotter than that bowl of Chicken Noodle. You would think that as time goes on they would cool down just a bit, but with some men, the older they are, the more finer they get…Here are some of the sexiest black males in Hollywood who are all in their 40s:


LL Cool J

It was the 1980s and the ladies loved Cool James. Well guess what? It’s the year 2012 and the ladies STILL love Cool James. How can you not though? With those juicy lips and those hard muscles, at age 44, Cool James does not seem to be cooling down anytime soon.

Blair Underwood

This actor has done it all. He’s played the role of the love interest, the intelligent lawyer, even a President. Let’s face it; Blair Underwood looks damn fine no matter what role he plays. He was voted one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” in the year 2000, and over 10 years later he is still unbelievably handsome at 48!

Shemar Moore

If you want to look good in your 40s, starting your career as a male model is probably the best way to go. If you need proof, just ask Shemar Moore who still looks damn fine at age 42. The sexay actor started off his career as a fashion model, and then quickly won over female soap opera fanatics as Malcolm on “The Young and The Restless.” Currently, he’s still winning over female viewers on “Criminal Minds.”

Morris Chestnut

Who can forget when this chocolate man came onto the scene? He started off his career starring in Boyz n The Hood, and then boom! It seemed like he was playing the role of a hot black man in every popular black movie. No one’s complaining though…his recent appearance in Think Like a Man proves why this 43 year old should keep on being that fine black man.

Djimon Hounsou

If there is such a thing as a “real man,” then Djimon Hounsou would definitely be the definition of it. If you don’t agree, just watch his movies Amistad, Gladiator and Blood Diamond to see a real man at work! He is one fine 48 year old…we’re sure Kimora Lee Simmons agrees with this one!

Gary Dourdan

How can you not be attracted to a black man with green eyes? At 45 years old, Gary Dourdan is most known for his role as Warrick Brown on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and spent 8 years hypnotizing viewers with those green eyes of his. Are you getting dizzy yet?


Lamman Rucker

It’s always better when a handsome actor such as Lamman Rucker stars in a television show. Why? Because this way viewers get to bask in his good looks multiple times a week, from the comfort of their living rooms. Most known for his role as Will in Tyler Perry’s television series “Meet The Browns,” 40 year old Lamman Rucker is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with as an actor having also starred in multiple Tyler Perry movies.

Will Smith

All ladies want a man who can make them laugh and not only does Will Smith make you laugh, but he looks pretty damn fine while he’s doing it. Perhaps he should still be called the Fresh Prince, because at age 43, he’s definitely not stale.


Taye Diggs

Taye Diggs may be known more for playing gorgeous male lead characters in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, The Best Man and Brown Sugar. These days he seems to charming female viewers by playing Dr. Sam Bennett on “Private Practice.” At age 41, Taye Diggs no longer needs to seduce the audience with his hot body; he seems to be doing it just with his beautiful smile.


Dwayne Johnson

We’re definitely not the only ones who didn’t know that “The Rock” was of African American heritage back when he was a WWE Superstar. Either way, we can’t deny that this 40 year old’s large muscles of steel make him a hot commodity. He definitely makes good use of those muscles as an actor who stars in multiple action flicks. Sure some women don’t care for the big muscles, but A LOT do!
