Mike Merrill

Today's Morning Wood is handsome, clean cut actor Mike Merrill, who made his star turn in The Bobby Brown Story on BET earlier this month. Mike was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan before moving to Atlanta in 2016 to pursue his dream of acting.

Mike Merrill

Mike also appeared as, "Scott", in Je McClain's, "The Lies They Told" stage play, and also starred in his first lead role as, "Deshawn", in Tonja Ayers's play, "Stay In Your Place".

Mike Merrill and Angel McCoughtry

I posted this photo of Mike posing with WNBA star Angel McCoughtry to give you ladies some perspective on how tall he is. Angel is 6-1, which means Mike stands about 5'-10" or 5'-11".

Mike is a nice guy, so please go easy on him. Fight the temptation to say something mean. It's nearly impossible to get men to send in their photos nowadays.

  • thrift.store.jungle

    auntie, how tall is this man? because, although relatively handsome, he looks... vertically challenged

  • Yardgirl

    He is a good looking man.

  • sunni_daze

    He's a winner! Great smile. Good actor. Great choice. HOWEVER...I'm going to need for him to get another designer belt to wear...so he doesn't wear the same belt everyday. Also, he looks to be about 5'8 or 5'9. Other than that...He is the best Morning Wood we've had in a long time. Congratulations Mike!

  • Alextra Ballard

    Sandra has really been playin with the last few of Mornin Woods..None even cum close to this gentleman.

  • WhoKnew

    I don't know bout a man wit tiddies bigger than mine, but I recorded parts 1 and 2 of the Bobby Brown story and finally got around to watching it one night last week and I have to admit that was a very impressive and entertaining movie. I can't name one show other than 24, that could keep me glued to the TV other than this one. Usually if I'm watching TV in bed, I'm on my phone or tablet just distracted as hell from watching TV but this joint had me glued. No phone or tablet in hand. Just glued. And I loved the ending in part 2. I won't do a spoiler alert for those who did not see it. Oh, and I don't remember seeing "morning wood" in the movie. Maybe he was.

  • TMW

    Good job Sandra ??


    Good job auntie , you do know how to pick a butch queen! I’m just kidding , very attractive, just to short for me ?????

  • Liah

  • Nikkiknows

    Who did he play in the BB movie? Watched it twice but can't remember him...

  • Gamer?? Chick

    I think he was the guy who pulled a gun on Bobby at a party when he was back home in B’more.

  • sunni_daze

    No leggins on him.

  • Bonita

    Congrats Sandra! You finally got it right. He's a cute young Alpha man.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

  • Soda
  • pure_rachet

    He looks good and straight! Sandra done good! Hate his belt though. See I found something mean to say lol.

  • free

    i think it concentrated too much on the hoeing and drugs. i know whitney ain't no queen but d@mn, they low-key showed her crackheadness and didn't balance it out well (but maybe there was no balance). i hurt when i saw bobbi kris growing up and remember what that security guard said in the whitney documentary about her coming into this world when her parents were at the height of their addiction. that was really hurtful to me as a parent and i know he feels bad in retrospect. i didn't bother to finish part two but i guess i will.

  • pure_rachet

    people complained about the singing/ performances but I loved them! So on point! I loved both parts but part 2 was too rushed. They could have made 3 parts and I would have still been glued.

  • pure_rachet

    Never seen this many cosigns in my whole time on this site. He definitely wins. Still not my type but good looking. Not suspect in my opinion. Sandy did good!

  • Renee Bee

    Two thumbs up! Great job, Auntie!!!

  • pure_rachet

    Thank you! That belt....

  • pure_rachet

    Good job Sandra! First straight morning wood in your history!

  • Renee Bee

    Girl, I saw that! He was speaking some harsh truths about Katt. Tiffany H. was right there by his side.

  • millz

    He loves that belt ?

  • Renee Bee

    Free!!!!! Hush nah. HUSH!!!
    I did not get those DL vibes at all.

  • hi-liter

    He loves his Hermes belt. Looks like the authentic reversible strap and buckle.

  • pure_rachet

    Am I the only one who thought Angel was a member of the NBA?

  • Soon2BWife

    FINALLY!!!! Thanks, Auntie! Have a good weekend ?’s!

  • ImWoke


  • leapyearpisces

    why you put a DISCLAIMER on the one morning wood that DOES NOT NEED a DISCLAIMER?????? SMH...NOW THIS is morning, mid-afternoon, evening, late night, early morning WOOD. I'll even give him a pass for being in the 6ft. and under club.
    Auntie, this the kind of wood we want to see. Notice none of his pictures are those CHEESY faux PRON pics....I mean these are nice pictures...he is just chilling not trying too hard....it's NATURAL.....

  • bemetoo

    now he does look good

  • bemetoo

    or the T-NBA

  • Being bad is way more fun

    He is all kinds of phyne and sexy which I made mention of the last party posting .. Is this why he is morning wood today ;-]

  • Logan Roberts

    He's kissable ?. I like beards tho.

  • Rayne

    Handsome guy. Good bone structure and smile. No duck lip selfies or overly sexual pics and his clothes fit oh so nicely. My gaydar shows no detection.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LMBAOFFFF! If you told me she was with the NBA I would have believed you...

  • Miss3rdWard

    Mike is a nice guy, so please go easy on him. Fight the temptation to say something mean. It’s nearly impossible to get men to send in their photos nowadays.

    See what ya'll did! lmbo!
    He's cute... but now I won't have any comments to laugh at.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Right?!? It's so hard to please a bunch of women and most women in here agree that he's nice looking. That alone makes him a winner!

  • Miss Thang

    ok ok ok... this is a little more like how i like it :)

  • Miss Thang

    lmaoooooo no, you are not xD

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I always thought he was handsome

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I had to turn it off because he was irritating me. Let Tiffany fight her own battles...her and Katt squashed it and moved on.

  • Wreckognize Game

    Ok Auntie. He is super fine.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly ... chile!!!!

  • dru and neil

  • WhoKnew

    Me too. I really liked this movie a lot and plan on keeping it in my DVR.

  • WhoKnew

    Yeah, I hear you. It's like Bobbie Christina never really had a chance with 2 drug addicted parents. Finish part 2 if you can. It's like closure without me giving a spoiler alert too much.

  • Jussjess25

    Okay is he trying to say that hes 25?? I dont think so. He cute or whatever tho ?

  • Applebum

    He’s cute. Simple and cute. Not trying too hard. ??
