Blair Underwood in Ironside

A mainstay in Black rom-coms, Underwood has been the object of many female fantasies over the years. The actor jumped to the small screen to shake things up a little, playing a paraplegic detective in Ironside. The reboot of the popular 1960s procedural didn't exactly fare well in the ratings, however, we may see Underwood back to his suave self on the big screen soon enough.
