Evan Handler (born January 10, 1961; age 55) played David Weiss during Day 4.

Biography and career Edit

Evan Handler was born in New York City, to secular Jewish parents. His mother was a mental health administrator, and his father an agency owner and advertising designer. Evan was raised in the Town of Cortlandt, New York, near Croton-on-Hudson, New York, and attended Hendrick Hudson High School in Montrose, New York.

After high school, he moved to New York City and worked as an intern at the Chelsea Theater Center, while also appearing in off-Broadway plays. He then attended Juilliard School but left the program to accept a role in the 1981 film Taps.

In the mid-80's, Handler was diagnosed with leukemia, forcing him to drop out of the Broadway production of Biloxi Blues, where he was understudying the role played by Matthew Broderick. After his recovery, Handler wrote a book about his experiences called Time on Fire: My Comedy of Terrors, published in 1996.

Handler is perhaps best known as Harry Goldenblatt, Charlotte York's second husband on the series Sex and the City. He reprised the role in the 2008 feature film and the 2010 sequel. He currently stars on Showtime's Californication. Other shows in which he has appeared are Law & Order, The West Wing (with Connie Britton and Glenn Morshower), and Lost (with Daniel Dae Kim).

Aside of TV, Handler has appeared in films like Ransom (with Michael Gaston, Jose Zuniga, and Henry Kingi, Jr), War and Love, and Natural Born Killers (with Tom Sizemore and Kirk Baltz).
