    Harry Lennix is my favourite actor. I have admired his acting for a long teme.

    jaybee1958Oct 21, 2009

    I really dug the heck out of Harry J. in The Five Heartbeats movie. With his fine self. And that deep thrusting voice! It`s on now!!

    brelenJul 13, 2009

    Harry when I said I hope to see you in Houston,I did`nt mean fly back from Puerto Rico to Texas and get married.(smile)They say that you favor Barack Obama and now you have a wife that favor Michelle.She`s young and will give you those crumb snacher you longed for.She is blessed to have you because you are the full package and she must be pretty special as well to have caught you.Maybe when you come with her to see her mom in the Houston area I`ll see you around and about sence you like to wonder about and site see.

    I was reading another post and saw several topics from Harry`s Ebony interview.One was about his ideal women.I`v only seen pictures of him and his co-stars and only heard of him mentioning some girl he fell in love with that turned him from becoming a priest but she married some football player and Teresa Randell being at his house by the pool.Even in that interview he went on to discribe someone that did`nt sound like Teresa if he was messing with her.One of the post felt he is in the closet other felt he was just waiting for the right person.HAUNTEDSOUL said he was his long time friend.HAUNTEDSOUL are you out there? Tell me whats up if anyone know you do an it was you that was putting some of this out there.And if he remember names like you said he does certainly he will remember me.So tell him I still love him and hope to see him if he is ever in Houston.

    when I see Harry Lennix he remind me of a young man that I met on bus back in the early 80`s in Long Beach,Ca.that wanted to take me off to Chicago with him.

    JackieMay 2, 2009

    He`s my FAVORITE actor. I`ll watch ANY movie he is in. You can throw around names like Russell Crowe or Ben Affleck, but to me - it`s all about Harry! I agree that he would be excellent to portray Barack in a movie. The first time I saw the President, I thought, He reminds me of Harry Lennix!

    debbieFeb 8, 2009

    Harry Lennix would be an excellent choice to play Barack Obama in movie. I have admired his acting for a long time.

    Geneva FranksDec 4, 2008

    I heard that he was dating some fitness trainer from the East.

    deeveeossAug 19, 2008

    I saw him on House. I looked for some albums but couldn`t find any. Does anyone know where I could find that music or music that is identical? Truly Inspirational stuff.

    Lumanyika MAug 16, 2008

    Great Actor!!

    BARBARAJul 30, 2008

    MR.LENNIX IS A WONDERFUL ACTOR AND I AM HOPING AND PRAYING THAT WHEN THE TIME COMES HE WILL BE CHOSEN TO PLAY BARACK OBAMA..ICANNOT SEE A BETTER CHOICE.HE`S CAPTIVATING,EMOTIONAL,INTENSE,AND OF COURSE THE OBVIOUS HANDSOME..HE WILL ONLY NEED HIS EARS PULLED OUT(SMILE).PLEASE PUT IT OUT THERE THAT HE IS THE MAN FOR THE JOB,NO NEED TO LOOK ANYWHERE ELSE AND I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT FEELS THIS WAY.I BELEIVE HE WOULD TRULY COMPLIMENT THE ROLE AND MR.OBAMA WOULD BE PROUD OF HIS PERFORMANCE..BLESS YOU MR.LENNIX I`LL BE WAITING TO SEE IT ALL COME TO PASS.

    Kaye B. DiarraJun 26, 2008

    How is it possible that Harry Lennix has no fans yet? Well, please sign me up right now! He looks so much like a dear friend that I once had from the Turkish culture, with those beautiful eyebrows. I appreciate the fact that he loves to read and wanted to become a Jesuit Priest at one time in his life. No shallowness with him.
