Tyson Beckford Loves Chocolate

He's one of the most successful male models of all time -- remember all those Polo Ralph Lauren campaigns? -- but Tyson Beckford is branching out. After roles in films like 'Zoolander' and 'Into The Blue' and appearances on 'Project Runway,' 'America's Next Top Model' and 'Make Me A Supermodel' (as host, no less), the chiseled New York native is taking to the stage in Philly. Beckford opens tonight in the play 'Loving Him Is Killing Me' at the Merriam Theater, playing a psychiatrist friend of a mother-daughter combo both obsessed with the same man. The Feast caught up with Beckford to find out what he craves most, what makes him angry (look out, Donald Trump!), and what's been on his to-do list the longest. Catch the award-wining comedy-drama -- which also stars Angie Stone, Kenny Lattimore, and NeNe Leakes -- Thursday through Sunday for as little as $39.00.
