Boris Kodjoe Bitches ‘Bout Being a Sex Symbol

Oh poor, poor Boris Kodjoe. Everyone just talks too much ’bout his pecs and not those Oscar worthy acting skills he possesses. Oh cry me a rive Kodjoe…really? Those sex good looks are what got you in the business to begin with…quit your bitching. To read more of pretty boy Kodjoe whining, keep reading:

Taking a break from promoting his new show “Undercovers” airing on NBC, Mr. Kodjoe told AOL’s Blackvoices that it is time people start talking more about his acting skills and less about his pecs.  He says this, even though he is shirtless at least every 10 mins on his hour long show….not that we mind.

“Over the past few years, it’s been more of a hindrance in that I had to really work ten times as hard to establish myself and prove to people that I’m more than that.  Sometimes, I think the sex symbol thing is overshadowing the fact that I’ve worked my butt off. I can’t worry about how people perceive me.”

But Boris hopes his new role as Steven Bloom, a former spy who comes out of retirement to solve a case, will be the role to show fans how far he can stretch as an actor.  He does all of his own stunts, and tries to play up the elements of action, comedy, drama and romance written into the scripts.

“Steven Bloom is probably closer to me as a person than a lot of the other characters I’ve played. He’s a very worldly person, an athlete, he wasn’t as far-fetched as other characters I played.”

Many critics have focused on the novelty of the show’s two leading characters being a black couple, yet Boris says it was colorblind casting on part of creator J.J. Abrams, “…it just happened to work out that way.”

“J.J. just told me I was the guy for the part and that was really refreshing and traditionally that’s not the case in TV and film.  The world is multicultural and diverse but it hasn’t been [shown that way on TV and film] in the past but it definitely is an important show because it shows that’s what the world looks like.”

Here are some pics from the latest episode of his show. Oh I wonder why folk so focused on his pecs:
