Good morning lovelies! So I’ve been thinking and I’m seriously considering renaming Monday, #BaeDay. I mean, for real, every single Monday we shine a mega spotlight on one of Hollywood’s finest and more often than not those men can all be considered bae. Am I right? And this week is no different; certified model and actor Keith Powers is in our spotlight today and right after the jump, I’m going to show you just why Keith is guaranteed gold in Tinsel Town!
Straight outta Sacramento, California, Keith Powers has been a star since he was a kid. At the tender age of nine, he was discovered by the JE Model agency in San Francisco. In high school, Keith was in talks for several prestigious college football programs but when he decided not to pursue his athletic dreams, he signed with famed model agency Wilhemina after high school. Keith has been featured in GQ fashion editorials, walked the runway at Calvin Klein at Milan Fashion Week and he has shot several campaigns for notable brands such as Sears, Target, Guess, and Sketchers to name a few.
Keith Powers is probably best known for his role as Anthony Theo from the MTV hit comedy show “Faking It”. And if you don’t know Keith from ‘Faking It’, you definitely remember him from the hit NWA biopic “Straight Outta Compton” where he played Dr. Dre’s younger brother Tyree.
And although Keith Powers seems to lead a busy, star studded life, his road to stardom is nowhere near coming to a close. In just a few weeks, we will see Keith Powers portraying music artist Ronnie DeVoe from the legendary R&B music group New Edition in the New Edition biopic set to air on BET. Keith will star alongside Luke James, Wood Harris, and Bryshere Gray to name a few. Keith, we are all here for your career and can’t wait to see what you accomplish next!
