Where Are They Now? The Super-Fine, Black Sitcom Boyfriends (And Husbands) We Wanted For Ourselves

Lance Rodman played by Allen Payne

The boyfriend of Charmaine on The Cosby Show with his high-top fade was goofy and pretty freaking adorable. I can’t tell you that he was memorable for his acting because when I was younger I used to just stare at his face. Now 44, Payne turned down doing A Different World back in the day to pursue a movie career, which he did: CB4, Vampire in Brooklyn, Jason’s Lyric, New Jack City and more. Of course, he came back to life (in the industry standard) when he snagged a starring role as C.J. on Tyler Perry’s former TNT show House of Payne.
