Biography

Writer, actor, painter, watch designer -- for Aldis Hodge the sky was the limit. After spending most of his childhood appearing in print ads and TV commercials, he began acting on Broadway in the Tony-winning revival of "Showboat" and on the big screen alongside brother Edwin in "Die Hard: With a Vengeance" (1995). They later shared several projects, including "Big Momma's House" (2000) and "Boston Public" (FOX, 2000-04), and in 2004 the ambitious Aldis branched out with a voiceover role in the popular video game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas" (Rockstar Games, 2004). After he portrayed an intimidating high school quarterback on "Friday Night Lights" (NBC/Audience Network, 2006-2011), the former design student and future watch mogul landed the role of gifted hacker Alec Hardison on TNT's "Leverage" (2008-2012) and appeared in the indie drama "The East" (2013). Aldis Hodge wasn't just an actor -- he was a one-man creative empire.
