With the second season of Leverage coming to a close, we were anxious to announce this week’s Nice Boy, Aldis Hodge. We have visited the Leverage pool before for our Nice Boy and we simply couldn’t leave Aldis out.
Aldis often appears in various television shows, some are Nice Girls favorites: Bones, Supernatural, Friday Night Lights, Castle and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. On the big screen, his credits include Die Hard with a Vengeance, Bed of Roses, Big Momma’s House, The Ladykillers, American Dreamz, and Red Sands. Aldis is certainly tearing up the tube these days along with his brother, Edwin Hodge.
Aldis Hodge started his acting career at the age of three, when he went on a print job with his brother and was chosen for an ad in Essence magazine. Hodge was doing print ads and commercials when he was bitten by the acting bug. At the age of 9, Hodge was cast in the Tony-winning revival of Showboat on Broadway. The rest is history. In addition to acting, Hodge writes, paints and attends the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Calif.
On Leverage, Aldis plays the Hacker, Alec Hardison, a brilliant technical wizard with just enough snark to qualify him as this week’s Nice Boy.
