The scoop: Harris, who plays lawyer Eugene Young on ABC's The Practice, grew up in Chicago dreaming of a pro football career. But when a senior-year injury ended those hopes, he turned to acting.

The ideal woman: "I like women who have flavor," says Harris. "I can't really define what that is, but I can smell it when she's got it." What he doesn't like, says Practice costar Kelli Williams, is scrawny women: "He gets on the skinny girls' cases around here and tells them to eat more."

What a catch: Costar Camryn Manheim, the single mother of 15-month-old Milo, says Harris worries that her son "won't get the things that a father figure brings to a family. He has taken it upon himself to teach Milo how to play sports and has man-to-man chats with him."

In his own words: "I would never go to a movie on a first date," says Harris "You spend two hours with someone you don't know in the dark, silent."
