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) as well as commercial successes "A Good Day To Die Hard" (2013) and "Straight Outta Compton" (2015). Aldis Hodge wasn't just an actor -- he was a one-man creative empire.
