Humanitarian, actor, author, health and wellness ambassador/educator and philanthropist, Hill Harper is most recognizable for his starring role in the hit television drama "CSI: NY," where he played eccentric Dr. Sheldon Hawkes from 2004 until early 2013. During that time Harper won three NAACP Image Awards for Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Dr. Hawkes. He currently stars on USA Network's Covert Affairs as CIA station chief Calder Michaels. Prior to CSI: NY, Harper co-starred as an ambitious undercover FBI operative on the CBS series The Handler, which earned him a 2004 Golden Satellite Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. In an effort to stop the high school drop-out rate of underserved youth, Harper created the Manifest Your Destiny Foundation, dedicated to empowering, encouraging and inspiring youth to succeed through mentorship, scholarship and grant programs.
