Wow! Remember The ‘Soul Food’ Kid? He’s A Grown Man Now & Looks Very Different!

Posted On : April 16, 2017

Here’s Brandon today at 33 years old. As  you can see, he is a grown man, but he’s still very recognizable. Pretty sure, it’s hard for him to walk through the streets without somebody saying “Yo, aren’t you the dude from Soul Food?”

Nowadays Brandon is single and as far as we know he doesn’t have any children as of yet, although he did say he’d like to have some in the future.

As far as his career, Brandon hasn’t appeared in any films or TV shows since approximately 2002, but it would be great to see him back on the scene again because he is a hell of an actor. We’ll never forget about the scene toward the end of Soul Food, where he cried on cue at the family dinner and put all of the adults in check. Brandon’s acting in that scene was priceless and it showed just how seasoned his acting abilities were.

Any kid actor who was that good at such a young age, deserves another shot in the game. So since Brandon has been off of the scene for a minute we decided to make a few suggestions of what TV shows/films we think he would fit in perfectly.


empire altered
He could play the role of “Lucious Lyons'” estranged son by another woman he cheated on “Cookie” with. This son could be a record label rival who eventually joins forces with the other Lyons family members to get revenge at “Lucious” for what he did to them…just a suggestion.


scandal altered
He could join “Olivia Pope’s” ‘Gladiator’ team on Scandal.

Orange Is The New Black

He would be perfect playing one of the main characters in Orange Is The New Black. A role as a villain prison guard maybe? What do you think?

Honestly it doesn’t matter what role Brandon lands, but we just wanna see him back on the screen again. Maybe one day, but only time will tell.

Aside from that, Brandon had to also step up to raise his brother after their beloved Mother passed away when his brother was just 15 years old. He posted a touching message about this for his brother’s 20th birthday last year (2016)…

Although we’d love to see Brandon Hammond acting again, it’s good to see the brotha enjoying life and doing what makes him happy these days.
