Boris Kodjoe is an actor that still continues to find work despite the fact that many people find his acting skills to be unimpressive. Kodjoe has been acting since the late 90s but many people are not impressed with his ability to perform on screen.
Kodjoe has appeared in films such as Brown Sugar, the Gospel, Madea’s Family Reunion and Resident Evil: Retribution and Resident Evil: Afterlife. Most people might be aware of Kodjoe’s talent from his role as Damon Carter on the Showtime drama Soul Food. He now appears on the BET reality show Real Husbands of Hollywood.
Many critics deem Kodjoe’s acting talent as good but not outstanding. They claim that he lacks any real screen presence when he performs. Apparently, many people think his acting ability is just too ordinary for him to stand out from any other type of actor. Most critics believe that Kodjoe’s natural good looks are what help him to stay employed. He was a former German male model who made the leap from fashion and modeling into acting.
Even many people have a low opinion of Kodjoe’s skill as an actor he still manages to land roles. Kodjoe has appeared in about twenty different films all throughout the 2000s and has worked in at least one film a year for the early part of the 2010s. The Real Husbands of Hollywood reality show is a comedy and apparently Kodjoe has enough talent to be a recurring member of the cast for this program. Boris Kodjoe might not be a highly rated actor but he does have something that keeps people wanting to see more of him in film and television.
