Laz Alonso is the newest guy that can Energizer Bunny me all night long. If you don’t recognize Laz, that’s okay, because I don’t either.
I was waiting for a movie to start in the theater when a promo for “Breakout Kings,” a new show on AETV, came on the big screen. When Laz appeared, I wanted to clap like a seal because I found this week’s Because He’s Hot piece. Laz is what lust at first big screen debut is all about. That smile, that smooth skin, that clean haircut… he’d be damn near perfect if he has an athlete’s @ss too. Fingers crossed.
Laz’s biggest role was playing one of the main characters, the jealous guy named Tsu’tey, in Avatar. He is Cuban and black and is bilingual in English and Spanish. This sexy piece has also appeared in some music videos and has won an Emmy for his participation in Budweiser’s “Wassup” commercials. Remember those?
Alonso has appeared in This Christmas, Fast & Furious, Jarhead, and more. He graduated from Howard University with a BBA in Marketing and had a lucrative career as an investment banker at Merrill Lynch on Wall Street. Pecs and brains? I’ll take it! He is so spongeworthy that I’ll just stop here and allow his photos to do the rest of the explaining.
