Dexter star aids injured homeless man

James Remar, who plays Dexter’s late father, Harry, on the Showtime criminal drama, Dexter, became a real-life hero last week when he came to the aid of an injured homeless man. After approaching the man outside a grocery store, Remar noticed he had a wound on his head that was bleeding. The actor promptly went back into the store, bought bandages and antiseptic cream and proceeded to dress the man’s wound himself. A former EMT, Remar also gave the man tips on how to keep the wound from getting infected. A truly selfless act, it appears that Remar lives by his own modified version of The Code Of Harry. ~Morgan Bates

    More people help the homeless than stars do… but the one time they do it’s a big deal

    who cares. stop worshiping these people.

    What’s all the blood gush behind Remar’s head in the upper photo?? lol
    Good man to help the homeless guy, he deserves credit. A star would be expected to be too arrogant to bother with a homeless vagrant hanging around the grocery stores.

    I believe on Sex and the city Samantha threw a martini on him and said “dirty man, dirty martini” Well not anymore! What a great guy for doing this!

    A nice thing James Remar did; very kind.

    As for “Nobody Important,” the name really fits you although you should add “Stupid” somewhere in there. No brainiac, that’s for sure.

    Also, to “Zuh,” your name is misspelled. It should be “Duh,” shouldn’t it? And also learn to spell, i.e., worshipping is the correct spelling!

    It looks like I offend a psychotic Twilight fan to gain such scorn.

    Can’t be too famous if he can shop in a grocery store.

    It would be more heroic if nobody knew about it.
