Steve Harris was popularly known for his role on the legal drama The Practice
. His character, Eugene Young, was an attorney who struggled with his conscience, but was more strongly devoted to the letter of the law than Bobby Donnel (Dylan McDermott) or Jimmy Berluti (Michael Badalucco). From 1997 to 2004, he was part of the principle cast of the show as the second highest-ranking partner at the firm who eventually became senior partner during the show's final season. In the coming months, the 41-year-old African-American actor will be gracing several acting projects set for release within the year.
In Ball Don't Lie
, the former Practice
actor will be featured in a movie based on Matt de la Pena's novel about a teenage basketball prodigy. It includes Harold Perrineau (Lost
), Nick Cannon and Ludacris. The film is directed by Brin Hill and is currently in post-production stages.
On the small screen, he will be joining a television pilot called Protect and Serve
, which explores the life and work of Los Angeles police officers. Harris plays Dennis Harvey, alongside Dean Cain as Mike Borelli and Monica Potter as Lizzie Borelli.
After his stint on The Practice
, Steve Harris became part of several romantic-themed movies, including The Unseen
and Diary of a Mad Black Woman
, prior to his return to the crime-drama genre on the series Heist
. He played James Johnson, one of the main characters of the show, along with Dougray Scott (Desperate Housewives
) and Michele Hicks. Unfortunately, the series was short-lived as NBC decided to cancel it after airing five episodes.
Most recently, he guest starred on Grey's Anatomy
and provided the voice of Detective Ethan Bennett in the animated series The Batman
