You've seen him on 'The Good Doctor' and 'CSI: NY' and now Hill Harper is entering the race for Senate in Michigan.

Who is Hill Harper?

Harper, who stars as Dr. Marcus Andrews on 'The Good Doctor' and played Dr. Sheldon Hawkes in 'CSI: NY,' has been acting since he was seven years old.

He graduated Magna cum laude from Brown University and with a JD cum laude from Harvard Law School. He also earned a Master of Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School at Harvard University.

Harper is a cancer survivor and became an adoptive father in 2017, adopting Pierce, whose name is an homage to Pierce Brosnan. He moved to Detroit in 2018 and purchased downtown Detroit's Roasting Plant Coffee.

A Friend of Barack Obama

During his time as a student at Harvard, Harper befriended Barack Obama and was later assigned to work with the National Institue of Health which makes recommendations to the White House on cancer policy.

Dear Pierce - Hill Harper for Michigan

In the video announcement below, Harper addresses his young son saying that his decision to run for Senate will mean sacrifices, drawing a comparison to Michigan families who struggle with everyday problems.

"It's going to be tough for us, I'm not going to be able to tuck you in every night," Harper begins. "But these are sacrifices so many hard-working families have to make every single day."

According to the New York Times, Harper is planning to run "to the left" of Representative Elissa Slotkin who is known as a moderate Democrat.

The 2024 Democratic primary is expected to draw a tremendous amount of interest as Michigan is a presidential battleground state.
