With ABC’s Resurrection back from winter break tonight, we’re more than ready for another round of screen time with hunky star Omar Epps. Truth be told, the veteran actor’s been on our ultimate crush list since Higher Learning. Here are just a few of the many reasons why.
Whether he’s dominating movie or TV screens, Epps’ performances win us over every time. Who can forget his standout turns in films like Higher Learning, Love and Basketball, Juice and The Wood?
Is it just us or has Epps aged in reverse throughout his 23 year acting career? #flawless
When it comes to best-dressed brothers, Epps always tops our list. Just look at how well he wears a suit. He’s a true crowd pleaser.
Epps almost always plays the good guy on screen, but there’s no mistaking those edgy vibes he’s sending. It’s the perfect combination!
Epps just commands the screen when he’s in front of the camera. Whether it’s a moment of intensity or a fun-loving scene, we only have eyes for him.
In addition to acting, Epps also excelled at music and dance in high school. At age 17, he toured briefly with Queen Latifah as a backup singer and dancer, and just a year later in 1991, he formed a rap group called the Wolfpack.
Epps only makes headlines when he has a hot new role. Otherwise, he keeps his personal life, well, personal. And we totally respect that.
The Brooklyn born cutie has theater in his blood. After being a student of the stage in high school, he landed his first acting role at the age of 17.
Cue up Shanice’s 90s classic please, because when Epps flashes a grin we just have to smile back.
Epps has been happily married to wife Keisha Epps for the last nine years. We love it when a man understands the value and the power of love.
Epps can blow us a kiss anytime. Hello, gorgeous!
Epps keeps a steady paycheck whether he’s starring on a hit TV show or headlining on the big screen. This man works hard for his reputation as one of Hollywood’s most enduring leading men. Cue the applause!
