The 20 Hottest Black Men To See On TV This Fall

Comments (25)


This fall, the major television networks have stepped up their game by casting handsome black men in a slew of new shows.

From veteran actors like Terrence Howard on the new Los Angeles 'Law & Order' and Blair Underwood on 'The Event' to sexy newcomers like Mehcad Brooks in 'My Generation' and James Lesure in 'Mr. Sunshine,' there's eye candy for everyone.

Blackvoices.com gives you our picks of the Hottest Black Men to Watch on TV this fall.



Mehcad Brooks
Show: 'My Generation' on ABC
Premiering: Sept. 23
Where We Know Him From: He was a scene stealer on 'The Game,' 'Desperate Housewives' and most recently 'True Blood,' but the Austin, Texas native's sex appeal drives us wild.
Why We Think He's Hot: This Calvin Klein underwear model has consistently impressed us with his hunky small-screen presence, so much so that we're not surprised he was chosen to play the show's former jock who heads off to war on 'My Generation.'


Blair Underwood
Show: 'The Event' on NBC
Premiering: Sept. 20
Where We Know Him From: This chocolate heartthrob got his start on 'L.A. Law' and in the cult hop-hop classic 'Krush Groove.'
Why We Think He's Hot: We've been dying to see the NAACP Image Award winner running the show, and he's sure to show us who's boss when he plays Mr. President on 'The Event.'


Terrence Howard
Show: 'Law & Order: Los Angeles' on NBC
Premiering: Sept. 29
Where We Know Him From: Since bursting on the scene as the sexy troublemaker Quentin in 'The Best Man,' the Chicago native starred in countless acclaimed films, most notably 'Hustle & Flow,' which earned him an Academy Award nomination.
Why We Think He's Hot: Though he's made us love and hate him on the big screen, we're looking forward to seeing him weekly as Deputy District Attorney Jonah "Joe" Dekker.


Morris Chestnut
Show: 'V' on ABC
Premiering: November 2010
Where Do We Know Him From: He played the beloved character Ricky Bell, who was tragically shot and killed in the 1992 John Singleton flick 'Boyz N The Hood.' Chestnut also starred in 'The Best Man,' 'Half Past Dead,' 'Two Can Play That Game' and 'Not Easily Broken.'
Why We Think He's Hot: It's been two decades since he burst on the scene but we still get joy from watching this lovable, strong black man on any screen and seeing him as Ryan Nichols on 'V' fighting for a life with his fiancé is a great new role for the California native.

Boris Kodjoe
Show: 'Undercovers' on NBC
Premiering: Sept. 22
Where We Know Him From: The Austria-born hunk made us swoon when he played the sexy Fed-Ex guy Damon Carter on the hit Showtime drama 'Soul Food.'
Why We Think He's Hot: Playing Steven Bloom, one-half of a gorgeous husband and wife spy duo, shouldn't be hard for this devoted family man, who hasn't aged a day since he first landed on the scene.
