“Cousin!” Yep, Viola Davis and Mike Colter are related. Who knew? Hear the story of how they met inside…

They're Hollywood cousins!

Successful actors Viola Davis and Mike Colter are cousins! And get this, they only met for the first time earlier this year.

The “Luke Cage” star is currently making promo rounds for his new drama “Evil” and paid a visit to “The Talk.” While chatting it up with the ladies, he revealed he’s related to the Oscar winner. She’s his 2nd cousin. Turns out, they hadn’t met each other until April 2019. Who knew?!



So what took them so long to link up?

“You know, honestly, we had never met but our families have family reunions, and they talk about us and stuff. They are very proud of us,” he explained.

“We’re just very busy… In L.A. you could be right next to someone, in the same neighborhood, you’re never home; you’re filming somewhere; they’re busy, life happens,” he added. “And we just never got caught up… I figured we would just work it out, and we connected, and we just made it happen. Took us about a week. We were like, ‘Let’s get some coffee and talk,’ and I met her mom. Good times.”

That’s what’s up!

Peep the clip below:
