Voice for Equality: Christian Clemenson
Christian Clemenson is an American film and television actor. Many of Clemenson's early roles in television and film matched his personality as a bright, soft-spoken professional. He was a law student in the television version of The Paper Chase, Alex Keaton's English teacher in the television show Family Ties, the bailiff in the Ivan Reitman movie Legal Eagles, the flight surgeon in the movie Apollo 13, a cop in The Big Lebowski and Dr. Dale Lawrence in the movie, And the Band Played On. While he has been a familiar face for over a decade, until recently his name was not so well-known. Recently, Clemenson has become known for his role as Jerry "Hands" Espenson on the television series Boston Legal. For playing Espenson, he won an Emmy Award for Best Guest Actor in a Drama Series in 2006 and was nominated for the same award in 2007. In film, he starred as real-life 9/11 victim Tom Burnett in United 93. Clemenson will reportedly join CSI: Miami for at least two episodes this season as a medical examiner.
