Evan Handler - Rotten Tomatoes

Evan Handler



The bald and slightly diminutive, affable character actor Evan Handler began his career in big-screen features with a handful of memorable portrayals in films such as the military actioner Taps (1981); the gentle, underrated coming-of-age dramedy Sweet Lorraine (1987); and Oliver Stone's gonzo anti-media orgy Natural Born Killers (1994). After 1996, Handler focused almost exclusively on television, with both guest and recurring roles on popular programs (Friends, 24, Lost) and short-lived series (Hot Properties, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip). He is perhaps best-known for his recurring role on Sex and the City (in seasons five and six) as Charlotte's divorce lawyer, Harry Goldenblatt, who ultimately won her heart and became her husband. In 2007, Handler joined David Duchovny and Natascha McElhone with a regular role as Hank Moody's (Duchovny) agent and best friend, Charlie, on the quirky Showtime series comedy Californication. He reprised his role as Harry Goldenblatt for Sex and the City 2 in 2010, and worked in the HBO docudrama Too Big to Fail in 2011.



Off-camera, Handler remains active in the theater; he essayed respectable performances in such New York-based stage productions as I Hate Hamlet (1991), Big Al (1992), and Time on Fire (1993).
