Boris Kodjoe

In the tv series Crossing Jordan, S6 E13 (“Post Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc”, from 4/18/07), Det. Elliot Chandler (played by Boris Kodjoe) appears on a case and startles the medical examiner’s staff by being extraordinarily handsome — not what you expect in a police detective. And so he is.

He’s 6′ 4″, with broad shoulders and a face of great masculine beauty — see my 3/10/16 posting “Male beauty” — and a lovely smile, so he comes across as a charming hunk. Something to stir straight women and gay men and to strike straight men as either a serious competitor or a fantasy model to identify with.

Head shots of Kodjoe, one serious — (#1), for the tv show Station 19 — one smiling (#2):


And then a steamy underwear-model shot (#3):

From Wikipedia:

Boris Frederic Cecil Tay-Natey Ofuatey-Kodjoe (born March 8, 1973), better known as Boris Kodjoe, is an Austrian-American actor, producer, and former model best known for his roles as Kelby in the 2002 film Brown Sugar, the sports-courier agent Damon Carter on the Showtime drama series Soul Food, and a recurring character on FOX’s The Last Man on Earth. He co-stars on BET’s Real Husbands of Hollywood and the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off, Station 19 as Battalion Chief Robert Sullivan.

.. Kodjoe was born in Vienna, Austria, the son of Ursula, a German psychologist of partial Jewish descent, and Eric Kodjoe, a Ghanaian physician who is of the Ga-Adangbe people.

… Kodjoe attended Virginia Commonwealth University on a tennis scholarship, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in marketing in 1996. … A back injury ended Boris’ tennis aspirations, but he was quickly signed as a model and soon after entered acting.

… Named one of the “50 Most Beautiful People in the World” by People magazine in 2002
