This is another one I can't totally agree with. Shemar Moore is painfully corny to me. I just cannot watch him in any movie or TV show without wincing at him being every single stereotype of the "pretty boy light-skinned guy." Taye Diggs is funny and attractive. Corny, yes. But still entertaining, and I respect what he's doing with Emmett Till. But Omar Epps was in movie classics like "Love & Basketball" and "Best Man" on top of raking it in on multiple seasons of "House." I don't see him as any different than Larenz Tate or Morris Chestnut. And when Andre 3000 brought up how much he loved Keisha from Total, who ended up with Omar Epps, that also gave him a few more "smooth" points.
