A lot of times dark-skinned men in Hollywood often get overlooked when it comes to people's perception of what sexiness entails when it comes to their standards this idea of beauty has down to the bear community, So for this post I wanted to highlight a dark chocolate, thick actor who often gets overlooked in many peoples Man Crush Mondays list.
I first noticed Leonard Earl Howze in the smash-hit movies Barbershop and Barbershop 2 as the well-beloved character Dinka, a shy kind-hearted employee in the up and coming neighborhood barbershop. But what made me add Leonard Earl Howze to my Bear Black Book was his scene in Barbershop 2 when he walked out the door showing his dark chocolate skin and hairy chest. He immediately became one of my favorite black thick actors, and worth entry into the Black Bear Book.
Even though Leonard Earl Howze is more remembered for playing Dinka, his acting career continued past the Barbershop film; regularly appearing in small roles in movies, television as well as short films. I started going back and reviewing Leonard’s other work and an becoming more and more of a fan of his with each credit in his acting resume. Hopefully will Hollywood catch wind of the commodity that is Leonard Earl Howze and put his talent to major roles in the future.
