Omari Hardwick Bares Poetic Skin in Inked Magazine!


By: Dove

Actor Omari Hardwick bares his creative soul in the latest issue of Inked Magazine with both a poem and a sexy shoot! Rap diva-slash-actress Eve graces the cover of the December/January issue, and you can check out Omari’s hot photo and a portion of his featured poem below!

A real life slam poetry champion, Hardwick made waves in 2010 with his role in Tyler Perry‘s powerful film For Colored Girls as Janet Jackson‘s two-timing husband. The star of TNT’s undercover cop series Dark Blue, Hardwick has also appeared in movies like Kick-Ass, The A-Team, Next Day Air and Miracle at St. Anna.

In 2011, you’ll be able to catch Omari Hardwick in the film Bolden! alongside Anthony Mackie, Wendell Pierce, Omar Gooding, Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) and Jackie Earl Haley (Watchmen, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2010).

I am 10 years old,
But filled with 34
Souls—one for each
Year I’ve scrolled,
I am the hottest time
In your life—now
Turned cold. I am
Basquiat’s greatest work,
Now worn—yet still sold.
But I really wish I were
Just your favorite word …
You know the one you
Say over and over cause
You like the way it
Dances with wolves on
Your tongue. I am Hova,
Young, Jay-Z at the
Least. But old enough to
Know if you groove to the
Beat—love is beauty. If
You dance lazy—love is beast.
I am crazy—but my straight
Jacket has become a pen and sheet,
My food for thought—for the thin to eat.
