Who’s Hot TV Stars Week 4
The Foreign Invasion
Boris Kodjoe – born: March 8, 1973
Born Boris Frederic Cecil Tay-Natey Ofuatey-Kodjoe, thankfully, he doesn’t go by his entire name or most Americans would have no idea what to call him. I would call him Sexy!
This German born actor came to the United States to play college tennis at Virginia Commonwealth University, where he lettered all four years. It was during his tenure playing tennis that he got his first acting job on TLC’s Red Light Special, playing a male prostitute. Shortly thereafter, a back injury dashed his tennis career, but he rebounded and landed a modeling contract and then began acting full time.
Kodjoe is married to Nicole Ari Parker with whom he costarred in Showtime’s Soul Food for several seasons before it was canceled. He is currently starring in BET’s comedy Real Husbands of Hollywood, and lawd is he fine.
Max Rhyser – born July 11, 1982
Born in Amsterdam, Rhyser is a true citizen of the world. His father moved his family around Europe throughout his childhood and adolescence, and he now calls New York City home. His mother is and Israeli/American and his father is from Denmark. He is fluent in English, French, Dutch, and Danish. Just imagine all the languages he can talk dirty to you in. Oh, did I mention that he’s also openly gay? Be still my beating heart!
Max got his start working on the stage in Amsterdam, but his good looks quickly garnered him a modeling contract that he has parlayed into several television series. He stared in “The Outs” as well as the internet series “In Between Men” which is available for free on YouTube in 10 minute episodes, and has quite the cult following. I for one, hope to see a lot more of this hot young star.
Joshua Bowman – born March 4, 1988
Joshua Bowman is an English Actor who stars in the Hit TV series Revenge. Born in Berkshire, England, Bowman was, for a short time, a professional rugby player, but due to a double shoulder injury, was forced to leave the sport behind.
After studying method acting at Lee Strasberg Institute in New York, he made his acting debut in the TV Series Genie in the House, and he has played Daniel Grayson in the series ABC series Revenge since 2011. That same year, he was selected as one of the “Stars of Tomorrow” by Screen International.
Bowman is currently dating his Revenge Costar Emily VanCamp. He was previously in a short relationship with late British singing sensation Amy Winehouse, so sadly he’s not gay, but he is one of the sexiest men on American TV.
Steven Amell – born May 8, 1981
Steven Amell is a Canadian actor who stars in the CW’s Hit series Aarow. Despite the fact that he’s not gay, he is one of the few actors in Hollywood who is not scared to play gay.
He starred in Dante’s Cove and Queer As Folk, as well as playing a male prostitute on the hit HBO series Hung. He has been nominated for three Gemini Awards, the Canadian equivalent of the Emmy’s and he won once.
Amell is married to a woman, but he has been outspoken about his support of marriage equality, saying on his facebook page: Take it from someone who was married on a beach, by his buddy — who got ordained online!! — in a legally binding ceremony: Marriage — and all the benefits that come with it — should be available to everybody. Some of the most loving, powerful relationships I’ve witnessed have been same-sex couples. And god knows their houses are always spectacularly decorated and terrific smelling. (Seriously. I get jealous.)
