Cool Dad Vibe: Effortless Charm
Cool Dad Bona Fides: Like his first name, Sterling K. Brown’s charm is classic. He can check off being tall and dark, plus he has handsomeness in spades. And the man knows how to tug at heartstrings, as evidenced by his starring role in the I’m-not-crying-you’re-crying show of the decade This Is Us. Brown also brought his talent to the Thurgood Marshall biopic Marshall and the Marvel movie masterpiece Black Panther, in which he played the father of one of this year’s most memorable villains, Erik Killmonger. In real life, Sterling isn’t far raising super assassins. He’s happily married to Ryan Michelle Bathe and the two are raising two bright sons, 6-year-old Andrew and 2-year-old Amare.
