Boris Kodjoe Back to Acting Not Radio

Boris Kodjoe, must be a great actor. He ACTED like he and his wife actress Nicole Ari Parker, were really interested in becoming the new hosts of the "Quiet Storm" on V-103 in Atlanta earlier this year. Or maybe it was V-103 that was doing all of the acting by indicating that the duo would be tapped to replace long time host Joyce Littel. They were making quite a few on-air guest hosts appearances and even co-hosted with Joyce before she was fired. But then again maybe Boris and Nicole were really serious; because they also did do a week long guest stint as Quiet Storm hosts on New York's 107.5 WBLS last year.

So what is it with actors and radio management anyway? When things kind of dry up for actors, along with comedians and singers; their agents must think radio is a viable option until another gig becomes available??? And program directors must become drunk with delusions of grandeur and think "these entertainers can just step right in and do radio... and the audience will love it".

Well as fortune may have it, Boris' fans will be happy to know that he won't be doing radio, but now stars in a new NBC series called "Undercovers" on Wednesday nights.
