Hot husband alert! Actor and model Boris Kodjoe joins this cast and we couldn’t be happier about it. The dreamy star, who is happily married to the lovely Nicole Ari Parker in real life, plays himself on the show.
Kodjoe, though playing himself on the new series, takes on the role of the “pretty boy” type on the show, which cast members say is mostly scripted, with a little improversation here and there.
Kodjoe struts his stuff on the red carpet at the show’s Hollywood premiere party. He’s one seriously dapper dude, and we love it. Who better to cast as the pretty boy than this caramel cutie? We’re looking forward to seeing him play a comedic role.
Veteran Hollywood actor, writer and producer Duane Martin also stars on Real Husbands. He plays himself (of course!) and the mature one of the group.
Martin has been happily married to actress Tisha Campbell for a whopping 16 years for real, and on the show. We love that the fellas are claiming their special ladies both on and off screen.
Funnyman Martin is more than familiar with the duties of a TV regular. He starred on comedic sitcom All of Us for four years, and most recently, seven episodes of The Paul Reiser Show.
Comedian and actor Kevin Hart is the show’s leading man, although his character is newly single, which also mirrors the recently-divorced star’s real life. The other “husbands” play his buddies who he has a hilarious love-hate brotherhood with.
Cannon’s character kept us laughing in the original Real Househusbands of Hollywood spoof skits that aired during the 2011 BET Awards show when Hart’s character pretended to have the hots for his real life wife Mariah Carey. Their popularity is what helped to get this series the go-ahead so fast.
Expect to see doting dad Cannon, who’s a proud parent to 1-year-old twins Moroccan and Monroe with Carey, showing off his silly side. We love a man who doesn’t take himself too seriously.
Blue-eyed soul singer Robin Thicke also made the lineup. Expect to see Thicke, who is married to Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocal star Paula Patton, joining the fellas for some fun on the series.
Known for his sultry performances and ability to sell out seats, soulful crooner Thicke will make his acting debut on the series. We already know his lovely wife, Patton, can act, but can her hubby hold his own onscreen too? Let’s see what type of shaninghans this hot husband will get into.
Thicke makes it known that he’s a devoted husband to Patton, and their 2-year-old son Julian, so we’re looking forward to seeing whether or not the two of them make an appearance on the show.
Prepare to laugh, laugh, laugh. Standup comedian and actor J.B. Smoove will play himself, and we just know he has a bag full of laughs ready and waiting.
Funnyman Smoove is best known for playing Leon Black in a 16-episode arc on fan favorite Curb Your Enthusiasm. You most recently saw his smiling face in Think Like A Man, where he also played alongside his Real Husbands co-star Hart. “This show is similar to ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘,” said the show’s producer Stan Lathan in an interview with The Los Angeles Times. “We tackle true things in a funny way.”
Just like the rest of the cast, Smoove is a happily married man. His wife is singer Shadidah Omar.
Wait, there’s more! Producers promise the show will deliver lots of great guest appearances from your favorite stars. (Did someone say Nelly and Common?!) Rumor has it Russell Simmons, Shaquille O’Neal, Jay Leno and the cast’s real wives all plan to show their faces on set.
Kodjoe, Hart, and Martin celebrate the show’s premiere Hollywood-style. Real Husbands of Hollywood premieres Tuesday, January 15, at 10 p.m. EST. Are you planning to tune in?
