With his Trinidadian good looks, onetime rapper Romany Malco lights up the small screen as a charming dope dealer on Showtime’s Weeds. Offscreen, he’s simply smokin’. The single 38-year-old met up with PEOPLE’s Jenny Sundel.
Do ladies love the shaved scalp?
I get the head rub. I’ve been getting women to shave my head, which is the bomb.
Aren’t you afraid they might nick or cut you?
I like exercising that trust.
Do you cook for women?
All the time. It’s how I express my love and my admiration.
Moqueca, a Brazilian dish [fish fillets, coconut milk, tomatoes, etc.].
Do you have a crush on Weeds star Mary Louise Parker?
I have a little crush on her, yeah.
Have you ever kissed her?
Yep. Oh man, hey, no! For work, for work!
Are you thinking about settling down?
I am. I really am. I’m not a player.
You just crush a lot?
Wooo! Yeah! That’s great.
