There aren’t many actors who have written five books of advice (including one aimed at prison inmates), but then there aren’t many actors like Hill Harper. Hill is probably best known for his nine seasons on CSI: New York, though one of his earliest roles was in the Canadian feature, Love, Sex, And Eating The Bones, directed by Sudz Sutherland. Hill is the son of two physicians and had ambitions to be a lawyer. That took him to Harvard Law School where between Torts and Constitutional, he found time to play basketball with fellow student, Barack Obama. Hill’s latest film is 1982, a true-to-life feature from debut director Tommy Oliver where Hill plays a father trying to hold his family together in the earliest days of the crack epidemic in the United States.
