Aldis Hodge (born September 20, 1986) is an American actor best known for portraying Alec Hardison on the TNT series Leverage.

Life and career[edit]

Aldis Alexander Basil Hodge was born in Onslow County, North Carolina on September 20, 1986.[1] Both of his parents, (Aldis Basil Hodge and Yolette Evangeline Richardson), served in the U.S. Marine Corps.[2] Hodge's mother is from Florida, while his father is originally from Dominican Republic.[3]

Hodge played both the clarinet and the violin as a child, but as an adult, his focus is on the violin; he purchased his first at the age of 18.[4] In addition to acting, Hodge designs watches, writes, paints, and attends the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, although he does take breaks from attending full-time due to his acting work.[5]

In 2007, Hodge was awarded the role of Alec Hardison on the day of his twenty-first birthday.[6] In 2010, he received a Saturn Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in Television for this role on Leverage[7] The win went to Aaron Paul of AMC's Breaking Bad.[8]

As of June 2012, Hodge expressed interest in playing the lead role in a Black Panther film.[9]

Aldis is the younger brother of actor Edwin Hodge.
