CBS' Magnum P.I.’s Stephen Hill joins the ViacomCBS Veterans Network family as our newest Ambassador!
Stephen Hill’s "Magnum P.I." character, a military veteran who flies helicopters, shares a distinguished trait with his father, who was a Vietnam veteran chopper mechanic.
Upon graduating with honors in mass media/broadcasting from Hampton University, Hill’s first job was as a copier salesman in his native New York City. After a few years of door-to-door sales for Xerox by day, and intense acting classes with famed coach Susan Batson by night, he received the fearful news that his mother had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Witnessing her fatal bout with the debilitating disease at the young age of 61 was the catalyst that thrust Stephen back into the artistic world. Having raised five children, the youngest of whom had Down syndrome, his mother never had the opportunity to fully express herself creatively. So Stephen honors her sacrifice by pursuing his acting career with physical and emotional vigor.
Hill’s television credits include “Law & Order: SVU,” “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” “Political Animals,” BLUE BLOODS, on the Network, “Boardwalk Empire,” “Lewis & Clark” and “Luke Cage.” His most recent work includes Steve McQueen’s feature film “Widows,” the play “Manhood” at the National Black Theater, and the Netflix series “Maniac.”
Born in New York and raised mainly in Willingsboro, N.J., Hill currently resides in Los Angeles. Hill has an eclectic and diverse breadth of interests. He’s a gym enthusiast and loves hip hop, meditation, reading, history, cooking, and collecting gemstones.
