Thank God he doesn't make movies anymore--he was never a very good actor. When he was young he was hot, mostly because he really worked out a lot. I think he married a model.
Have there any been any gay rumors about him?
I liked him in Little Man Tate and Bug. Not sure if I've seen him in anything else.
He was cheesy good in Copycat. And he was Lt. Cable in Glenn Close's South Pacific, wasn't he? And he was kinda funny on Will and Grace.
Gay men tend not to marry women who look like this.
A good friend of mine used to be bar tender in New Orleans. She knew Harry pretty well, she was older than he was, they never dated but she did sleep with him a few times. Average only girls.
Harry liked to get fucked at the gym
She's probably got hot brothers, r3.
Why must everyone be gay?
We'll turn that question right back on you: Why must everyone be straight?
Liked him in Independence Day.
My friend is close to him (musician who toured with him and recorded with him). He is a really nice guy. I have never heard anything about him being gay, but my friend has hinted that he has cheated on the wife while on tour.
He's gotten better looking with age. I grew up in New Orleans, cousins went to school with him. Never saw him in a gay bar before he got famous, and I was in all of them simultaneously 24 hours a day. I declare him straight.
He seems a genuinely sweet person. Loved his Broadway show!
Loved him when he was helping on rescue missions in N.O. following Katrina. He took his shirt off and gave it to an elderly man and then carried the man to a rescue boat.

Miss Connick was NEVER funny on W&G. He was a tragic, crashing bore in every scene he was in, and he made Deb Messing look exciting in comparison. (Then again that's probably why he was hired.)
He wears a rug, right?
I saw that, too, r14. Just a really special man.
He's one of those celebrities you never hear a bad thing about. And he was an okay actor. Someone post a recent picture.
I liked him as Lt. Cable in "South Pacific." He was perfect in that role.
Oh my, Harry wears one of the most intricate replacement systems in showbiz, next to Tony Bennet. I'm a hairdresser and can spot artificial hair at 50 paces. As far as acting, well "acting", is concerned, he's the absolute worst. No timing, no feel for his fellow actors, just reciting lines. He's a very self-conscious performer, a bit too preened, and understandably so, since he's well-groomed averageness at best.
I thought he was unforgettable in "Independence Day". I can recite all of his lines from memory.
Currently on Law & Order SVU as Olivia Benson's (very unconvincing) heterosexual love interest. I wish Benson would just come out of the closet already, everything about her screams 'dyke'.
He is still hunky, though, bald or not. There's no denying that. The guy has a great body.
I sat next to him in a VIP lounge at a basketball game where he was going to sing. He was nice and nice looking and seemed nervous about performing. He was tapping his glass to get the ice out and the cubes tumbled out hitting his face and then to the floor. He was embarrassed..lol

Me too. I've met him a few times and he's a nice guy, but not a single gay vibe. He's kind of a sweet lunkhead with a taste for blondes with big tits.

Who knew Miss Hagen was also a hairdresser?
He is LUCKY. That is his chief attribute.
He is a decent but not stellar singer/musician who came along at the right time: listen to his albums now, and it's pleasant, but a complete snoozefest. He built a film/stage acting career based on very little beyond his good looks, charm, and recognizability.
I'm glad to hear that he's a nice guy, but he is that rare show biz story of someone who's lasted over 2 decades with notably slim talents and a massive dose of luck.
He is a great musician! Horrible actor! Totally loved "It had to be you" when I was in grade school.
My first serious live in boyfriend was a jazz musician always bringing home an eclectic array of music from metal to Opera. He loved Harry's We Are In Love. He would play it and dance around the living room with me like the big in love goofs we were.
The title track brings back the best memories of waltzing around and him singing to me.
I'll always have a soft spot for Harry because of that album.
I thought the story was that Harry got his career courtesy of his corrupt New Orleans D.A. father's Mafia associates.
All this hair talk reminds me of the Will & Grace episode where Will meets him for the first time and then complains to Grace about him. Will is especially pissed off about his hair and tells Grace that he probably steps out of the shower and runs his fingers through his hair and then he is good to go.
He was a great mentor on American Idol. They screwed up by not having him back as a regular.
