Danny Lebern Glover (born July 22, 1946 in San Francisco, California) is an American actor and film director. Glover was a member of the revolutionary Black Panther Party. In his late twenties, he became interested in acting by enrolling in the Black Actors Workshop at the American Conservatory Theater.

He currently serves as board chair of the TransAfrica Forum, "a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the general public √ particularly African Americans √ on the economic, political and moral ramifications of U.S. foreign policy as it affects Africa and the Diaspora in the Caribbean and Latin America." In March 1998, he was appointed ambassador to the United Nations Development Programme.
He is probably best known for his legendary role as Los Angeles police Sgt. Roger Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon movie series, and his role as the abusive husband to Whoopi Goldberg's character Celie in The Color Purple.
Among many awards, he has won five NAACP Image Awards, for his achievements as a black actor.
He joined the ranks of actors, such as Humphrey Bogart, Elliot Gould, and Robert Mitchum; who have portrayed Raymond Chandler's private eye detective Philip Marlowe in the episode 'Red Wind' of the Showtime network's 1995 series 'Fallen Angels.'
Glover made his directorial debut with the Showtime channel short film Override in 1994.
He graduated from San Francisco State University, where he met his wife.
He is a San Francisco Giants fan.
Glover's political involvement has been widely covered in America. Glover opposed United States military action in Afghanistan and Iraq. He joined Harry Belafonte in a visit to Venezuela, during which Belafonte condemned President George W. Bush as "the greatest terrorist in the world."
Some conservative commentators, including Michael Medved, criticized Glover for his decision to appear in the fiction movie Saw, which some critics described as gratuitously violent, stating that it conflicts with his political pacifism.
