DANNY GLOVER (Col. Isaac Johnson) has been a commanding presence on screen, stage and television for more than 25 years. His film credits range from the blockbuster "Lethal Weapon” franchise to smaller independent features, some of which Glover also produced. He starred in the cult horror hit "Saw” and had a recurring role on the hit NBC drama series "ER” during the 2005 season.

Glover appeared in the musical feature "Dreamgirls” for director Bill Condon, co-starring Jamie Foxx, Eddie Murphy and Beyoncé. He will next be seen in "Poor Boy's Game,” "Razor,” "Honeydripper” and "Be Kind Rewind,” Michel Gondry's surreal comedy about a video store, in which Glover stars opposite Jack Black and Mia Farrow.

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 Theater. 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 Oscar®-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 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.”
