Hill Harper talks about Barack Obama on 'Access Hollywood Live'Hill Harper and Barack Obama went to Harvard together, and wound up acting on 'CSI:NY' and the President of the United States, respectively. So you might not imagine they had too many classes together. But Harper said on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) that he actually got to know Obama in college.

Harper called Obama "a great guy" and said he's still the same person he was at Harvard. He especially praised his sense of humor. "I'll tell you, the thing I wish more people know about our president is seeing his sense of humor. Super funny, super fun. He is, he's very witty and he has this kind of really kind of acerbic kind of cool sense of humor."

Obama was president of the Harvard Law Review, and didn't have much time to party or hang out, according to Harper, but the two did manage to meet on the basketball court now and again. So who got the better of it on the court? "Oh, come on," said Harper. "Listen, he's older than I am. He's got old knees."
