TOP 5 Guys Vixens Want to See Back On the Big Screen
It’s been quite a number of years since some of the men in Black Hollywood, who made our hearts melt and heads turn, graced the big screens in a major film with a leading role. Of course there are dapper gentlemen who exude sex appeal with great acting skills that we miss. In honor of that VIBE Vixen rounded up a few handsome men we would love to see grace the big screens once again!
Pretty Ricky is what they called him. From Boys In The Hood to The Best Man to The Brothers, Morris Chestnut kept us yearning for more. Beyond his effortless talent; his tall, dark and handsome physique kept our eyes on him in films in which we were envious of the lucky lady who had the opportunity to play his love interest. And who can forget the looks he gave and that sexy move he did with his jaw. Girl, yes.
We’d love to see Morris grace the big screens once again as the lead actor in a dramatic role or a romantic comedy. But with talks of a sequel to The Best Man 12 years later, our wishes may just come true.
Who could forget our favorite frenemys Bishop and Q in Juice when Omar Epps debut in his first leading role in a film? And let’s not forget when Omar won our hearts in one of every Vixen’s all-time favorites, Love & Basketball. There’s not a time that goes by that I didn’t wish I was playing the role of Monica that Sanaa Lathan played so effortlessly. Time and time again Omar has given us countless reasons to pay attention with his incredible skills and GQ Swag. His versatility in acting and the ability to take on new genres with such ease is one of the reasons why we want to see more of him.
And as much as we enjoy seeing Omar play Dr. Foreman on House, we’d love to see him grace the big screen once again as a new character in a sequel to The Brothers or in a role that shows off his softer sensual side.
Don’t we all wish we could be swept off our feet by a handsome renaissance man who can speak volumes of original poetry? When Larenz wasn’t playing a street banger in a Menace II Society, he was seducing us to the pit of our souls in Love Jones as a hopeless romantic who had a way with words. He has an inviting aura that leaves you wanting more.
Although we haven’t quite had the opportunity to see Larenz in many films, those that he has appeared in got our attention. As devastating as it was when he disappeared from film, we’d welcome him with open arms if he graced us with one more romantic classic.
Mekhi Phifer has always been a bit of a bad boy in films and you know what? We love it! When he wasn’t protecting himself from a crazed killer alongside of Brandy in I Still Know What You Did Last Summer or gracing the mean streets of Harlem with DipSet’s very own Cam’Ron in Paid In Full, Mekhi was smooth talking Jessica Alba in Honey. Admit it. Like the rest of the brothers mentioned, he was a hot commodity that we all wanted.
I can’t help but think how much of a great addition he would have been in Takers. We’d like for Mekhi to take a slight break from TV and rekindle the love we had for him on the big screen.
When Taye Diggs stepped onto the scene in 1998 in How Stella Got Her Groove Back, he had many women flaunting their confidence and vibing out to Aaliyah’s “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number.” When he appeared along side of Morris Chestnut in The Best Man, he had us all reminiscing just how deeply intoxicating a forehead kiss can be.
We can’t wait until he reprises his role as Harper Stewart in The Best Man. Maybe this time he’ll be the groom and give a little bit of brown sugar as he jumps the broom with his love interest Robin.
