Soul Food (2000-2004)

In this television adaptation of George Tillman, Jr.'s groundbreaking film, Kodjoe played a character relative close to his own life: a biracial, college-educated man from a conservative family who strikes his own path. Life further imitated art when Kodjoe fell in love with his on-screen love interest, Nicole Ari Parker. Still self-conscious about this English, "Nicole would read my lines to me and I would mimic them back," he revealed.
