LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.Today's subject is Hill Harper.

Hill Harper is in an award winning actor, best selling author and activist who can currently be seen on "CSI: New York," as Dr. Sheldon Hawkes.
