Detoxaholic is back with the #YYT (Yummy Yeah Tuesday) celebration! Showing love to two new generation thespians that both fearlessly tackle wide-range roles, and equally capturing audiences with their incredible good looks on the new breakout WGN America series Underground.
First, we’re showing love to the absolutely gorgeous Jurnee Smollett. She was born in New York City to a Jewish father and African American mother along with her five other creative and talented siblings. All my fellow millenials fell in love with Jurnee as a 1990s child star from her work on the hit sitcoms Full House and On Our Own. She also received much critical acclaim for her performance in classic films such as Eve’s Bayou and The Great Debaters. I always admired how Jurnee was never one of those tragic child stars whose career tragically ended from drugs, alcohol, or worse. Presently, this classy icon in the making is starring in the new hit series Underground. She plays Rosalee, who is a mulatto house slave that bravely runs away from her plantation yearning for freedom and a better existence. I’m totally obsessed with this series and love Jurnee’s strong screen presence. If you’re naïve to this superstar’s resume, view her IDMb page, and follow her present-day hustle via Instagram and Twitter.
Our next nominee is tall, dark, and handsome Aldis Hodge. He also co-stars alongside Jurnee on Underground. He plays a character named Noah, who is a field slave that’s too intelligent and proud for his lot in life and is the bold ringleader of the group of runaway slaves. Aldis has played countless supporting roles throughout his career, but he is best known for his role as Alec Hardison on the TNT series Leverage, and his role as MC Ren on the hit film Straight Outta Compton. I always had a crush on Aldis, and it has only intensified with his role on Underground. I love watching his strong dynamic amongst the other characters in the film, especially his budding romantic relationship with the Rosalee character. My most favorite scenes are when he takes his shirt off because he has the body of a chocolate Adonis, good Lord! Ok sorry, let me gather myself. Any how, I wish nothing but the best for this superbly talented man. To get more familiar with Aldis, visit his IDMb page, or via Instagram, and Twitter.
