Today’s #CelebrityCrush is the ultra talented and uber sexy actor, Lamman Rucker. Lamman is probably best known for his series regular roles as Garret Williams on the now defunct ABC soap opera “All My Children”, Will Brown from Tyler Perry’s “Meet the Browns” and as Mona’s boyfriend Chase on “Half & Half” but these fays, Lamman is gaining even more notoriety for his role as Jacob Greenleaf on the brand new OWN show “Greenleaf”.
Greenleaf follows the unscrupulous world of the Greenleaf family with scandalous secrets and lies, and their sprawling Memphis megachurch with predominantly African-American members. The series is headed by veteran actors Keith David who portrays Bishop James Greenleaf, and Lynn Whitfield who stars as his wife and matriarch of the family, Lady Mae Greenleaf. Merle Dandridge plays the series’ protagonist, Grace Greenleaf, their estranged daughter who has returned home after 20 years following the mysterious death of her sister, Faith. Lamman’s new role has him portraying the eldest child of James and Lady Mae Greenleaf.
Since it’s debut, Greenleaf has been met with mostly favorable reviews and the all-star can all be applauded for that.
From his million dollar grin, to his rich and smooth mahogany kissed skin, it’s a no brainer about why we chose Lamman to represent as this week’s #Celebrity Crush. Wouldn’t you agree?
