Profile Bio Text
Hill Harper (born Francis Harper; May 17, 1966) is an American film, television and stage actor. Harper attended Harvard Law School. Harper was born in Iowa City, Iowa, the son of Harry Harper, a psychiatrist, and Marilyn Hill, who was one of the first black practicing anesthesiologists in the United States. Harper broke into both film and television in 1993, doing recurring work on the Fox series Married...with Children and making his film debut in the short Confessions of a Dog. He had his first substantial role in a feature in Spike Lee`s Get on the Bus (1996), which cast him as a UCLA film student riding a bus to the Million Man March in Washington, D.C. He went on to further demonstrate his versatility in such films as Lee`s He Got Game (1998) and Christopher Scott Cherot`s Hav Plenty (1998), the latter of which featured him as an egotistical pop-soul singer. His profile subsequently rose on both the mainstream and independent film circuits, thanks to roles in films ranging from Beloved (1998) to the independent romantic comedy Loving Jezebel (1999) to The Skulls (2000), an entry into the teen thriller genre. Harper did some of his most acclaimed work in Jordan Walker Pearlman`s The Visit (2000), an independent drama in which he starred as a prisoner dying of AIDS who tries to put his life back together. His best-known role to date is that of coroner-turned-crime-scene-investigator Sheldon Hawkes on the American TV show CSI: NY, the second spin-off from the very successful CSI: Crime Scene Investigation franchise. Harper is the author of three books: Letters to a Young Brother, published in 2006, Letters to a Young Sister: DeFINE Your Destiny, published in 2008 and "The Conversation", published in 2009.
