Love Jones’ Larenz Tate and House of Lies Don Cheadle donned (sorry, couldn’t help it) hard hats to help build homes with Habitat for Humanity L.A. A Different World’s Col. Taylor…er Glynn Turman also chipped in to get his hands dirty roofing and painting low-income homes in L.A.

The project was coordinated between SHOWTIME network to give back to the community as well as promote their show House of Lies that Glynn, Don and Larenz star in.

Despite it being a major PR stunt, it’s still nice of them to volunteer their time. Glynn, Don and Larenz were also joined by William H. Macy from SHOWTIME’s Shameless show.

To show his support Larenz posted this adorbs message on his Twitter and Instagram pages *swoon.*

It has been 10 years since his mainstream media days and Larenz is still looking fiiinnneee.

Keep up the good work, buildin’ brothas.

Bey may be on the run with her hubby, but her heart is still in H-town. Hence the queen dipping into her honey money jar and dropping $7 milly towards a 43-unit apartment complex for low-income and homeless people in Houston.

The money will be used to expand construction on the Knowles-Tenemos Place Apartments that originally broke ground in 2009. The charitable donation is one of many the powerhouse performer has loosened her purse strings for recently.

And valued by her Pastor–Rudy Rasmus of St. John’s United Methodist Church –that is overseeing the low income housing project, which includes HIV/AIDS screenings and job preparation.

He praised Beyoncé for her on-going generosity in a radio interview.

“She’s an incredible human being. Has an incredible heart and has been extremely helpful in our mission and ministry here.”

Wait. There’s more. He goes on to say how fortunate he is to have her as a pal (amen to that).

“She has a global platform and is doing some amazing work and I’m glad she’s a friend of mine.”

We should all be so lucky.
