Actor, producer, and humanitarian Danny Glover has been a commanding presence on screen, stage, and television for more than 25 years, with film credits ranging from the blockbuster Lethal Weapon franchise to smaller independent features, some of which Glover also produced. At the same time, Glover has also gained respect for his wide-reaching community activism and philanthropic efforts, earning him the 2003 NAACP Chairman's Award and the 2006 Director's Guild of America Honors in recognition of his lifetime dedication to public service. Glover has served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program and currently serves as UNICEF Ambassador.
