kerry-washington-marries-Nnamdi-Asomugha.jpgIf you know football, you already know Nnamdi Asomugha. But if you only know “Scandal,” you may be wondering just who this mystery man is who won the heart of Kerry Washington.

Washington and Asomugha kept their relationship under wraps — quite an achievement in Hollywood these days — until E! broke the news of their June 24 marriage in Idaho over a week after the fact.

Asomugha is currently a cornerback for the San Francisco 49ers and he’s played in the Pro Bowl three times. He played college ball at University of California, Berkeley before getting drafted in 2003 by the Oakland Raiders.

He also played for the Philadelphia Eagles, is the chairman of his own philanthropic foundation — the Asomugha Foundation — and has a not-too-shabby IMDb page. In addition to playing himself in an episode of “Mike & Molly” and Comedy Central’s “Kroll Show,” he had roles on the Season 4 premiere of “Friday Night Lights” and a Season 3 episode of “Leverage.” He also co-wrote, produced and stars in the short “Double Negative.”
