Coming soon to a magazine, billboard, VGA display and television screen near you: Djimon Hounsou modeling Calvin Klein underwear.
Beginning with the Fall 2007 season, the Academy Award®-nominated actor will be featured in global print, electronic and outdoor campaigns. The actor-slash-model—well known for hitting the "steel" to achieve his muscular phsyique—will front the brand's newest product line, Calvin Klein Steel.
Djimon, who was born in Benin, says: "As a child growing up in Africa, I could have never dreamed that I would be where I am today. Representing such an iconic American brand like Calvin Klein Underwear...this carries more meaning for me than you can imagine."
Hounsou becomes the ninth man to be featured in a Calvin Klein Underwear campaign and the first actor in over a decade.
