Remember the kid who played Vivica Foxx’s son “Ahmad” in the classic 90’s film, Soul Food? His name is Brandon Hammond and we were over here at the ILOSM headquarters reminiscing about the 90’s and his name was one of the first to come up. We then figured that we probably weren’t the only ones who wanna know where this dude disappeared to after Soul Food, so we’ll feel you in.

Recap of His Acting Career

But first, for those who may not be familiar with Brandon’s work as an actor, here’s a quick breakdown: After Brandon got his break in his first film, Menace II Society, the gigs started rolling in and soon he was the in high demand for any gig that needed a great child actor. He had roles inWaiting To Exhale, Space Jam, Mars Attack, and The Fan. But his most well known role was Soul Food and after he proved just how great of a child actor he was able to land a few more roles in the movie, Blue Hill Avenue, and on a few TV shows such as The West Wing, The Gregory Hines Show, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman, Early Edition, Our America and Penn & Tellers Sin City Spectacular. Then it seems as if his light just kind of faded and we never saw this cat again.

He’s 33 Now

So where is Brandon Hammond now? Thankfully, he’s still around and he ain’t a kid anymore, he’s a grown 33 year old man, who has the ladies flocking to him on social media without even trying. Life is going well for him apparently and when we found him, we were were pleasantly surprised Why? Because Brandon did not fall into that ‘kid actor’ syndrome that so many childhood actors succumb to unfortunately…
