Boris Frederic Cecil Tay-Natey Ofuatey-Kodjoe has been a hottie since his early modeling days, back when he was gyrating in TLC videos (“Red Light Special”) and showing up to look good for Faith Evans “(“Never Let Go”). But since then, he’s proven himself to be more than a pretty face. Kodjoe has established himself as a pretty good actor, a businessman and even a funny man thanks to his time on The Real Husbands of Hollywood. If that’s not enough, he’s also a great dad. Say what you want about Kodjoe’s personality (after seeing him in person and reading about past Twitter comments, yeah, he can be a bit…stank), but no one can deny that this guy is one delicious looking brother, and we’re talking delicious in one of his suits, or bare-chested and shiny. Click on through and you’ll see what we mean!
As a model, Kodjoe was killing the game with his killer body, bone structure and and just straight up beauty. Fieeeerce darling, fierce!
And aside from being a pretty face, you probably already know that Kodjoe speaks fluent German. Why? He spent a good deal of his life in Germany. His mom was an German psychologist and his father, a Ghanaian physician. He’s showed off his bilingual-ness in his TV roles, and after hearing him do so at BET’s Rip The Runway, it sure is hot!
Kodjoe was also a prized tennis player, attending the Virgina Commonwealth University on a tennis scholarship. His talents actually propelled him into the history books at the school, as he is in ninth place for having the most singles wins.
Sadly, a back injury ended Kodjoe’s tennis aspirations, and soon he became a model, then an actor. He is of course one of the original cast members of the Showtime series Soul Food, where he met his wife, Nicole Ari Parker.
Aside from Soul Food though, Kojoe has struggled to have television success. His sitcom with wife Nicole Ari Parker, Second Time Around, didn’t last long, and of course, the show Undercovers on NBC was a failure. But things might change now that Real Husbands of Hollywood has been renewed on BET for a second season. Congrats fine sir!
He sure knows how to give us the eye now doesn’t he?
But when Kodjoe tries, he also has a pretty gorgeous smile too. And I think from the picture above, he knows how to smile with eyes…aka, smize. Tyra where you at!?
Did you know that the actor is also behind a line of inexpensive suits for men and clothing for women with his line, ALFA? Check the stuff out, it’s pretty fly. That’s probably why he looks like he was born to wear suits. They just melt on his body…
But as fine as he is, as we said, he’s very much taken. He and wife Nicole Ari Parker have a beautiful relationship and partnership that has brought two gorgeous children into the world. Which makes sense since they’re both some really good looking people. But despite all that, a gal can ogle from afar. So what do you think? Is Boris Kodjoe your cup of tea??
