Topless Tuesday

Before I begin, I would like to thank the Style Network for playing mini marathons of Sex and the City. Lately, my Saturday and Sunday afternoons have been booked solid with Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda.

No, I’m not randomly thanking the Style Network, I have a point. The gentleman chosen for this week’s Topless Tuesday was a guest star alongside the girls…

Blair Underwood

I know, it’s not the best picture in the world, but it’s all I’ve got to work with.

Anywho, if you don’t recognize Blair, he is best known for his roles on L.A. Law, Sex and the City, The New Adventures of Old Christine¬†and those are only a few of the television shows he has starred on. I mean, he has been locking down TV and movie roles since 1985.

Blair was born August 25, 1964 in Tacoma, Washington. Skipping a few years ahead to college, Blair attended the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama in Pittsburg, PA. I can’t believe he was only a six-hour drive away from me! Typical.

While Blair hit the silver screen first with a film called Kush Groove, the ball really started rolling when he landed a guest spot on The Cosby Show. His appearance with Bill and the gang led to One Life to Live, where a majority of celebrities make a stop at the beginnings of an acting career. If you’re really interested, click here for a full list of Blair’s movie and TV appearances.

Now to my favorite part of the Topless Tuesday post. It’s time for the Fun Facts!

  • Blair was on the cover of a 1996 issue of Playgirl.
  • President Barack Obama is an old pal. The two became acquainted when Blair was researching his legal role for L.A. Law at Harvard the same time¬†Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review.
  • Even though Blair is primarily an actor, he has a Grammy Award! He won in 2009 for Best Spoken Word Album, An Inconvenient Truth.

There is no point in me continuing this post. I just found out that Blair is married and has been married since 1994…to the same woman. I guess that means they really like each other. On top of that, they have three children. Ugh. No hope for us single ladies out there.
