Harry is a street-wise police detective who spotted young Dexter’s passion for human vivisection and helped his son channel his homicidal impulses in a more constructive pursuit: the deliverance of vigilante justice. Morgan taught him to blend into the “normal” world by day and use his “talents and interests” in a constructive way at night by eliminating heinous perpetrators who think they’re above the law or who may have slipped through the cracks of justice.
James Remar’s has appeared in more than 50 feature films, numerous television projects (both episodic and long form) and on the New York stage. He has played historical figures such as Gen. Omar Bradley opposite Tom Selleck in Ike: Countdown to D-Day and Dutch Schultz in The Cotton Club. Remar’s most memorable performances include a streetwise gang kid in The Warriors and as the billionaire playboy ‘Richard’ in Sex And The City opposite Kim Cattrall. Remar’s early training with Sanford Meisner at the Neighborhood Playhouse and later with Stella Adler helped give him a tremendous dedication to authenticity in his work. This dedication led to playing diverse roles such as ‘Ganz’ in 48 Hrs., a gay Nazi hustler opposite Richard Gere in Bent on Broadway, a hard, yet sympathetic narcotics detective opposite Matt Dillon in Gus Van Sant’s independent classic Drugstore Cowboy and a tough customs agent in Jon Singleton’s smash hit 2Fast 2Furious.
