Good morning, ladies. We’re counting down to the release of Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married Too?” What better way to count the days than to showcase the fine brothers in the movie. Up today, Michael Jai White.

White, who doesn’t look a day over 30, is actually 42. We kind of don’t believe it either.

Michael showed up to a special screening of “Why Did I Get Married Too?” in a white tuxedo jacket and a bow tie. We love a man that knows how to dress. Swooning!

Toss Me Around
Michael Jai White kicked some major butt as the lead character in “Black Dynamite” (2009). There’s just something about watching a sexy man open up a can of whoop ass that speaks to our primal instincts.

Michael doesn’t seem like a tough guy in person, but on screen he likes to pop off. For his first major role, White played boxing champ Mike Tyson (remember that?). Next he acted as a former assassin/evil fighter from the underworld in “Spawn.”

We know he’s taken, but a girl can fantasize, can’t she? Michael’s been happily married to his wife, Dr. Courtenay Chatman for nearly five years. We all want a prince charming like you, MJW.

Baby, Baby, Baby
What is it about seeing a man hold his child that has us all wanting to head for baby-making practice?

Feel Like a Schoolgirl Again
Michael and his “Why Did I Get Married Too” co-hosts strolled into ESSENCE headquarters last week. The entire office was beside itself. Just look at that smile!

In the Flesh
And yes ladies, he’s even sexier in person. Getting jealous? We hope so.

Be Still My Heart
This tough guy makes our hearts melt every time he stares into the camera.

Come And Talk To Me
We need to talk about those arms at length. Then when we’re done with that we can have a discussion on those lips and that smile. Followed by a brief intermission. Followed by a an outline of the entire body.

Although White is happily married in real life, his on-screen marriage with “Why Did I Get Married?” co-star Tasha Smith has had its problems. Still, their ability to work things out makes us want to settle down. Hopefully with a man who has chesticles like Mike…please God.

Michael Jai White showed his love of horror-thrillers in the lead role of “Spawn.” We’d like to bury our faces in in his big, smooth shoulders during all the scary parts.

Gonna Get You Sucka
Even in a polyester suit, Michael is a sexy mother-shut yo mouth!

Make You Sweat
White played George “Iceman” Chambers in “Undisputed II: Last Man Standing,” but there’s nothing frigid about his smoking hot body.

Man, Oh Man
Damn! Those shoulders, those arms. Let’s just say that Michael Jai White has a lot to hold on to.
