Let's Talk About Keith Powers, The Guy Who Played Tyree in 'Straight Outta Compton' and Your New Fantasy Bae

Who are you and where did you come from??

By Sharon Lynn Pruitt

O'Shea Jackson Jr. isn't the only guy worthy of bae status in Straight Outta Compton. We've all been busy drooling over Ice Cube's son, but what about Keith Powers, the model/actor who portrayed Dr. Dre's little brother in the N.W.A. biopic?

Before gracing movie screens everywhere as Tyree in Straight Outta Compton, Keith was discovered as a model at just 9 years old, and signed with the Wilhelmina modeling agency straight outta high school (see what I did there?). He's been featured in tons of fashion editorials and ad campaigns, even walking the runway for Calvin Klein at Milan Fashion Week (yeah, he's legit). Most of you will probably recognize him from TV screens though, as Anthony "Theo" on the MTV comedy series "Faking It." 

But let's get to what's really important: not only is he pretty talented, the guy is also ridiculously beautiful. Seriously, just look at him:

And have you heard his voice? 

Not everyone is sleeping on Keith though; he's inspired his fair share of thirst over on Twitter.

Thus far, 2015 looks like it's going to be a good year for Keith. He's already had a role (and absolutely killed it) on the record-breaking AMC series Fear The Walking Dead, and he's set to star in Yahoo's upcoming comedy series, Sin City Saints, where he'll play a rookie basketball player headed for greatness.

He's definitely one to watch, and we can't wait to see what he does next. In the meantime, we'll be stalking him on Twitter and Instagram. His posts are super positive and he seems like an all-around good guy, so don't blame us if you fall in love.
