Kofi Siriboe may be one of Hollywood’s most promising heartthrobs, but – as reaffirmed by an exclusive chat with That Grape Juice – the ‘Queen Sugar’ star isn’t running low on his supply of substance.

At just 27-years-young, the model-turned-actor’s resume reads of impressive diversity – with roles in film and television that have seen his name listed on credits alongside the likes of  Queen Latifah, Ice Cube, Rutina Wesley, Tina Lifford, and many others.

In that same vein, the latest addition to his growing filmography, new Netflix movie ‘Really Love,’ sees Siriboe stand toe-to-toe with even more entertainment vets (i.e. Blair Underwood, Michael Ealy, Suzzanne Douglas, etc.) while also leading the charge to deliver a refreshingly honest, yet necessarily updated take on the Black Love trope.
