Boris Kodjoe has to be one of the most attractive Hollywood actors in their 40s. He is actually 44. For someone that is in his middle ages, he has definitely maintained his body very well. Besides that, he has a very handsome face. No wonder that he is regularly cast as the heartthrob in many films (TV and movie).

In the 90s, Kodjoe played tennis at Virginia Commonwealth University but unfortunately, he injured himself and that ended his aspirations for professional tennis. However, because of his dashing looks, he started to model and from there, he went on to acting. One of his first big breaks was when he was casted in TLC‘s Red Light Special. His acting career took off when he starred in Soul Food from 2000-2004.

Boris, who was born in Vienna, Austria, is of mixed heritage. His mother was German (partially Jewish) and his father was Ghanian. He is also married to Nicole Ari Parker and has two kids.

Currently, he co-stars in Code Black and also a member of Real Husbands of Hollywood.
