10 Finest Black Actors & Male Models Under 40
As part of black history month, we are highlighting not just those who made history, but those who are currently making history, and these 10 cuties aren’t just easy on the eyes; they’re making history in entertainment, fashion and in Hollywood, too.
See 10 of the finest black actors under 30 below.
1: Jussie Smollett, 34
Jussie Smollett has been acting since 1992, but he shot to fame when he landed the role of Jamal Lyon on the hit TV series Empire. Jussie is mad talented, and that’s what he owes his popularity to, but it doesn’t hurt that he’s attractive, either.
2: Jeremy Meeks, 33
How do you become a runway model? Getting arrested and having one of the most gorgeous mugshots ever taken is one way of doing it. We’re just kidding 😀 Jeremy Meeks, otherwise known as “Prison Bae” gained accidental popularity when his mug shot, which was stunning, went viral. Now, Jeremy has recently walked the runway at New York Fashion Week. This is what we call turning a negative into a positive.
3: Rome Flynn, 25
If you’re a daytime soap opera fan, you’ve probably seen the pretty eyes and radiant smile of Rome Flynn looking back at you from your TV screen. Flynn plays Zende Forrester on CBS’s The bold & The Beautiful.
4: Elijah Kelley, 30
We fell in love with him as “Seaweed” in the movie version of the Broadway hit Hairspray, and then once again when he recently played the role of Ricky Bell in The New Edition Story. What can we say? The blacker the berry, the sweeter the juice. 😉
5: Tristan Wilds, 27
We’ve been following Mr. Wilds since his days on The Wire and 90210, but most of you would have fallen in love in late 2015 when he starred in Adele’s Hello video. Whether you’re a long-time fan of this wild thang’ or you’re just starting to enjoy him, feast your eyes.
