DREAMGIRLS

DANNY GLOVER (Marty) has been a commanding presence on screen, stage and television for more than twenty-five years. His film credits range from the blockbuster "Lethal Weapon” franchise to smaller independent features, some of which Glover also produced. Recently, he starred in the cult horror hit "Saw” and the comedy remake "The Shaggy Dog.” He also had a recurring role on the hit NBC drama series "ER” during the 2005 season.

A native of San Francisco, California, Glover earned a degree in Economics from San Francisco State University and also trained at the Black Actors' Workshop of the American Conservatory Theatre. He started his acting career on the stage, appearing in numerous plays, including Athol Fugard's "The Island” and "Sizwe Banzi is Dead.” However, it was Glover's Broadway debut in Fugard's "Master Harold…and the Boys” that first brought the actor national recognition.

It was after seeing his performance in "Master Harold…and the Boys” that film director Robert Benton cast Glover in his first leading role in 1984's Academy Award®-nominated Best Picture "Places in the Heart.” The following year, Glover starred in two more Best Picture nominees: Peter Weir's "Witness” and Steven Spielberg's "The Color Purple.”

In 1987, Glover partnered with Mel Gibson in the first "Lethal Weapon” film, earning an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Lead Actor. He went on to star in three hugely successful "Lethal Weapon” sequels. Glover has also invested his talents in more personal projects, including the award-winning "To Sleep With Anger,” which he executive produced and for which he won an Independent Spirit Award for Best Actor; "Bopha!”; "Manderlay”; "Missing in America”; and the film version of Athol Fugard's play "Boesman and Lena.” Glover's many film credits also include "The Royal Tenenbaums”; "Beloved,” for which he won an Image Award for Best Actor; "The Rainmaker”; "Angels in the Outfield”; and Lawrence Kasdan's "Grand Canyon” and "Silverado.” Glover has also lent his distinctive voice to such animated films as "Antz,” "The Prince of Egypt,” and the upcoming "The Barnyard.”

On the small screen, Glover won an Image Award and a Cable ACE Award and earned an Emmy nomination for his performance in the title role of the HBO movie "Mandela.” He has received three more Emmy nominations for his work in the acclaimed miniseries "Lonesome Dove,” "Fallen Angels,” and the telefilm "Freedom Song,” the last of which Glover also executive produced and for which he garnered another Image Award, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination. In addition, he won an Image Award for his work in the miniseries "Alex Haley's Queen,” and received Image Award nominations for his roles in "Buffalo Soldiers” and "Good Fences,” which he also produced.

Behind the camera, Glover executive produced and hosted the Fox Family Channel series "Courage,” and executive produced and starred in the Showtime movie "3 A.M.” As a director, he earned a Daytime Emmy nomination for Showtime's "Just a Dream.”

In 2003, Glover made a triumphant return to Broadway in a revival of "Master Harold…and the Boys,” winning applause from both critics and audiences.

In 2004, Glover co-founded Louverture Films, LLC, dedicated to the development and production of films of historical relevance, social purpose, commercial value and artistic integrity. He has also gained respect for his wide-reaching community activism and philanthropic efforts. Glover currently serves as a UNICEF Ambassador and, in recognition of his dedication to public service, has been honored with the 2002 Marian Anderson Award, the 2003 NAACP Chairman's Award, and the 2004 BET Lifetime Achievement Award.
