Top 10 Hottest Black Men in Hollywoodby Team FK Sunday, November 30th, 2014 .
It seems that Hollywood is filled with dishy black actors leading the way on the silver screen…Team FK counts down the sexiest actors that cause us to dribble over the popcorn. These leading men are our guilty pleasures, irresistible and dangerously hot!
10) Columbus Short, 32
Our favourite ‘Gladiator in a suit’, Columbus has caused us to swoon not only on ABC show ‘Scandal’ but also on movies such as Stomp the Yard and Cadillac Records if only the ever controversial actor would just behave, message to Short “treat women well so we can see more of you”!
9)Michael Ealy, 41
We are loved seeing Michael in Think like a Man Too but before this we have seen ‘blue eyes’ in films such as For Colored Girls and Their Eyes Were Watching God, yes he sure knows how to play crazed lunatics, but we love this sexy new father anyway. The dishy actor has also been previously been linked to a bevvy of beauties such as rapper/actress Eve and award winning actress Halle Berry.
8)Charles Michael Davis, 29
Tell us that you watch CW television drama The Originals,a spin off of ‘The Vampire Diaries’? Well anyways, the sexiest vampire on TV Charles is African American and Filipino and you may have also seen him in episodes of ‘Greys Anatomy’ and ‘Switched at Birth’. One more thing…as we go to press he is officially single!
7) Lenny Kravitz, 50
With his intense smoldering looks it’s hard to believe that Lenny is 50 . The Grammy award wining musician turned actor has been showing up more and more on our screens and its hard to deny that his looks have not faded. Its no wonder he’s decided to venture more into acting if you didn’t know Lenny’s mummy played a major character in the 1970′s sitcom ‘The Jeffersons’, and his former wife was Lisa Bonet from ‘A Different World’ and his daughter is obviously the beautiful Zoe Kravitz who we have seen in blockbuster ‘Divergence’ and ‘X Men’.With recent roles in ‘The Hunger Games’, ‘Precious’ and ‘The Butler’ we want more of Lenny on our screens as well as on the radio of course.
6)Derek Luke, 40
His first foray on to the big screen was in Antwone Fisher alongside Denzel Washington, and since then we have seen him in an array of films most recently as Paula Patton’s love interest in Baggage Claim.The epitome of the saying ‘the blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice’, Derek is dark and handsome, with nice lips. Unfortunately for us he has been married since 2008 but we can look forward to seeing him star with Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley in next year’s Sci-Fi flick Selfless.
Those piercing grey blue eyes….our very own Dr Mcdreamy, Jesse plays Dr Jackson Avery in ABC Television series Grey’s Anatomy. Sorry ladies he’s married….and he has a daughter. We love educated brothers and Williams has a a double major, used to be a teacher and has written articles for CNN and Huffington Post. Williams is also the youngest member of the board of directors at The Advancement Project, a civil rights think tank and advocacy group. Jesse is the perfect package and every woman’s dream man.
4)Lance Gross, 33
Before he got into acting, we saw Gross in the music videos of soul queen Mary J. Blige, RnB bad girl Rihanna and pop diva Mariah Carey. With fine abs, this tall, dark and handsome actor is most recognisable for his role in Tyler Perry’s House of Payne series and as the long suffering husband in Tyler Perry’s Temptations: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor. He was engaged to America’s Next Top Model Winner Eva Marcille Pigford but now has a daughter with stylist Rebecca Jefferson.
3) Omari Hardwick, 40
Strikingly handsome college graduate Omari had our hearts fluttering in BET’S Being Mary Jane and Starz Power. He has featured in feature films such as Tyler Perry’s For Coloured Girls and in an array of popular television series. Hardwick hails from Atlanta, Georgia and has not done bad for some one who used to sleep in his car. We look forward to him keeping our TV screens steamy in seasons 2 of Being Mary Jane and Power.
2)Boris Kodjoe, 41
Born in Vienna, Austria to a German mother and Ghanaian father, yes you read that right! Our African brother Kodjoe is fluent in French and German. This pretty man has us gushing in any movie that he stars in and is famed for roles in Love and Basketball, Brown Sugar, and Resident Evil. He is happily married to actress Nicole Ari Parker.
1) Idris Elba, 42
No, it’s not because he is British that he gets the top spot. Idris has been taking Hollywood by storm for awhile. Elba has appeared in films such as American Gangster, and Thor. He’s so damn hot and when he’s not acting he’s DJing under the moniker DJ Big Driis (or Big Driis the Londoner). He hails from Hackney, East London and is half Sierra Leonean and Ghanaian.Proud of his West African roots he has been very vocal about the Ebola situation in West Africa.
So there you have it…is there anyone you think should have made the list?
