We had a great chat with Blair Underwood on Very VH1 yesterday, during which the actor chatted with us about his new NBC drama, Ironside. Our favorite moment was learning how Blair actually researched his role on LA Law in the 80s by spending time with President Obama…way before most of us knew who he was. Check out the amazing story in the clip above.
Blair Underwood stopped by Very VH1 today to
make us swoon talk about his new NBC cop show, Ironside, and we seriously had to consider the principles of mathematics. Because, seriously, this guy is 49 years old? Is he some kind of vampire? Well, if you watch the Spreecast, you will get a sense of his maturity, but we think it’s pretty hard to tell his real age from project to project. Check out the photos from some of his memorable roles above and see if you can sort them into chronological order. Answer key after the jump.
If you’re too young to have crushed on Blair Underwood during his days as hotshot lawyer Jonathan Rollins on L.A. Law from 1987-1994 (we are too, but we loved the reruns!), you could have lusted after him on Sex and the City (as Miranda’s sexy neighbor) or In Treatment. Er, sorry. Not to downplay his considerable acting talent! Don’t tell him we objectified him when you join us on the Very VH1 Spreecast this Wednesday at 4:15 pm ET (1:15 PT). Instead, ask him all about Ironside, his new series premiering on NBC Wednesday night.
