SOUTHFIELD (WWJ) - Actor Boris Kodjoe is best known for his roles in “Soul Food” and “Love and Basketball,” but he’s also an advocate for up-and-coming filmmakers and artists.

WWJ’s Entertainment Reporter Terri Lee spoke with Kodjoe one-on-one about the Gold Peak Tea “Take the Year Off” contest, where one lucky winner will pocket a cool $100,000.

“It’s just great for somebody to be able to enjoy their family or just stay at home and persue their dream, their passion, something that they always thought they wanted to do but they never had the oppertunity to do,” said Kodjoe.

And entering couldn’t be any easier.

“All you have to do is go to and tell us why you should be the deserving winner of the $100,000,” he said.

To enter, complete 2 check box questions, answer 2 short answer questions and upload a brief essay about what you would do with $100,000 and a year off of work and submit them along with a recent, clearly recognizable photo of yourself.

Five finalists will be selected on the basis of compelling quality of submission, creativity/originality of submission, and fit to promotion theme of enjoying the comforts of home.

The five finalists will be asked to submit a video to tell America why they deserve to win. Gold Peak Tea Facebook fans will then vote on the videos and the winner will be announced around Labor Day.
