Danny Glover stars in "Touch" on FOX as Arthur DeWitt.

On the big screen, Danny Glover was recently seen in "2012," as President Thomas Wilson, Neil LaBute's "Death at a Funeral," Bill Condon's critically acclaimed "Dreamgirls," "Po'Boy's Game" for director Clement Virgo, Antoine Fuqua's "Shooter" as well as Michel Condry's "Be Kind, Rewind." Glover also appeared in ABC's award-winning drama series "Brothers and Sisters."

Glover has been a commanding presence on the screen, stage and television for more than 25 years. His film credits range from the blockbuster "Lethal Weapon" franchise to smaller independent films including "To Sleep with Anger," which he executive produced and which garnered the actor the Independent Spirit Award for Best Actor, "Bopha!," "Manderlay," "Missing in American" and the film version of Athol Fugard's play "Boesman and Lena."

It was his Broadway debut in Fugard's "Master Harold...and the Boys," which brought him to national recognition and led director Robert Benton to cast Glover in his first leading role in the Academy Award-nominated "Places in the Heart." The following year, Glover starred in two more Best Pictures nominees: Peter Weir's "Witness" and Steven Spielberg's "The Color Purple."

Glover earned a Cable ACE Award, an Image Award, and an Emmy nomination for his performance in the HBO movie "Mandela." The actor also received Emmy nominations for his work in "Lonesome Dove" and the telefilm "Freedom Song."

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.
