4D THE PALM BEACH POST WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1999 MSL Harris: Role possible because of groundbreaking black actors 'My folks would say, "We don't care what you do, just be the best at it. " ' STEVE HARRIS Actor who plays Eugene Young on 'The Practice' from Northern Illinois University and got a master's degree in acting from the University of Delaware in Newark. Theater roles led to television and film. He appeared in Homicide: Life on the Street, Law & Order and New York Undercover. He had film roles in The Rock, Sugar Hill and The Mod Squad. But it's his role on The Practice that is the most enduring, where he can show the endless ways of looking at a black man, though so few are ever seen. Young exists, Harris says, because of the work of actors such as John Amos, Bill Cosby, Sidney Poitier, "all those cats." "This show could have been written 10 years ago, but nobody did it," he says. Even now, Harris is acutely aware of the rarity of Young and the constraints he, the actor, faces. "I was never considered, thought of as possible, for the lead of The Practice. Wesley Snipes could have walked in there with all ... he has going for him and would have been told, "We need someone else,' " Harris says. "There won't be many Eugene characters. There'll be Dylan (McDermott) characters." Hollywood realm of the bored and the jaded. Right now, he still just talks. And he tells a story about why he is the man he is, a quiet reminder that there are black men with core values, fond childhood memories, a belief in earned success. He grew up on Chicago's West Side, and in the sixth grade tried out for the football team. He failed. In seventh grade, he tried again. He remembers how Coach Watkins would call the contenders out in pairs and have them run for the ball. The fastest and most tenacious won. This time, Harris made the team. And seared into his memory were Watkins' fundamentals: pride, hustle and determination. "My folks would say, We don't care what you do, just be the best at it,' " Harris says. His mom, Mattie, stayed home with him and his younger brother, . Sherwin, also an actor. His father, who died recently, worked two jobs one at the local racetrack, the other for the transit authority. "When I got this role, it was the happiest I've seen my parents get They were thrilled I was a lawyer. Before, I'd played primarily bad guys," Harris says. "This character has a set of values and integrity that I have to be responsible for." Harris graduated in 1989 you, scared because you're black . . . you can't understand. Until that kind of thing happens to you over and over and over and over and over . . . you can't know." The defendant "went to the aid of a victim of racism. Then he became the enemy and was assaulted by security guards. And he reacted with moral and personal outrage. ... I won't ask any of you to understand. ... All I'll say, this man is no deviant." The man was set free. "After it was done, (the cameraman) came up to me and said, Toil saved the day, brother.' " B The first thing one notices about Harris is that his physique is far less imposing than it appears on television. He is of average height and medium build, and while his shoulders are broad, they do not fill a door frame the way Young does with both his size and his intensity. Harris enters a room with a smile and with his head slightly cocked in an expression of . . . maybe curiosity, maybe anticipation. During his summer break from Tfie Practice, Harris was outside of Toronto filming a movie, The Skulls. Harris, who is single and lives in Los Angeles, has not yet crossed into the helping a victim during a riot. To win the defendant's freedom, Young's firm decides to argue that the man's crime was committed out of an unstoppable, uncontrollable "black rage" for which he should not be held accountable a defense that exploits the worst stereotypes and plays into the haunting presumption of the black male as a barely domesticated animal. "In the initial script, Eugene is arguing against using (black rage) as a defense and then he goes along with it," Harris says. "My dilemma is to find another way of getting him off. . . . That episode, I stayed up nights over." In the original version, white actor Dylan McDermott was to give the closing argument, rife with racial grenades. But Harris argued that if Young was willing to accept the strategy for the client's sake, he would insist on delivering the closing argument so he could expound on racial identity as defined by the self and by the culture. The change was made, and Young was left to pick his way through the land mine of cultural slights and open wounds. "The cameraman at first he's also black got the script, the original, and he sort of HARRIS From ID "He defends a racist cop," Harris notes. "I thought Eugene Young would. Steve Harris may not, but Eugene Young would." . The role was small at first. In the pilot, Harris appeared in only two scenes. "But from reading the first script, I knew they'd have to give me something to do," says Harris, who thought a host of stories could be told through Eugene Young. He started transforming Young into a "real" black man, with flaws and virtues. He didn't focus on talking to lawyers or scouring case notes but rather on creating Young's personality and logic. ' "I take the ethnicity into account," he says. Series creator David E. Kelley "isn't black. I'm not white. He doesn't understand the certain idiosyncrasies of the community. I can't expect him to understand that. Why? He shouldn't. But when he misses, that's when I .step up." . . In an episode titled The Means, a black defendant is on trial for accidentally killing a store security guard who attacked him while he was Bad karma surely met creep at irrj.Tq-.jjii door the morning?

He does, however, have a job bagging groceries, a job he may even keep if he can manage to clock in on time. If he can hang in for two more paychecks, he should be able to have a new transmission put in his Chevette. The Ford Explorer he was driving Thursday night was not his, but his father's, the Ford loaned Elmo against his better judgment. "One more speeding violation and you're out of the house," his father had warned him that night.

"He got the next script, the one we were actually doing. It was a better script, but he shook his head and said, 'It's gonna be a rough one.' " Young must find a way to win the defendant his freedom, yet leave him with his dignity. Precious little dignity. The pain is palpable on his face as Young addresses the jury: "This man got frustrated and he fought back. He was justified. But as legal strategy, we didn't think we could get you to believe he was justified. We had a better chance of convincing a white jury that he was an animal, so it became good legal strategy to argue that our client is like some pack animal. A social deviant.

In a show of bravado, Elmo floored the pickup, meaning to execute a neat fish-tailing four-wheel drift around the circle, accelerating deftly out of the turn. Instead, he skidded into the yard, smacking the Mazda. In sheer panic and an agony of embarrassment, young Elmo spun out of the yard, heart pumping, and the young woman bleeding profusely from the lip. "You (bleep) ing lunatic," she shrieked, 'Vou just knocked out $5,000 worth of orthodontia, and my dad will sue you to a fare-thee-well." "Could you please try to stop bleeding on my father's Eddie Bauer seatcovers," Elmo pleaded as he sped out of the neighborhood.

And what was that insurance deductible? Five hundred, he was pretty sure. His dad's insurance was already a sensitive issue at home what with Elmo's age and three speeding tickets in the last year.

Can older people find new opportunities there loo. or is it just the young kids those companies on the Web want to hire? Am. No way. Nearly nine out of ten senior level executives recently surveyed by Exec-U-Net said they actively used the Internet to help them manage their careers and with that increased usage, many were able to find new jobs, the Internet is fast becoming a management tool and certain sites cater exclusively to senior ececutives ike yourself. But there is a catch. Two years ago only 64 percent of those surveyed said they were online Today almost 90 percent of them are surfing the Web. That means you better sharpen your computer and Internet skills if you want to use this wonderful medium to its full advantage, and don't be afraid. You don't hav to be a youngster to get the hang of that either. DR. JOB is written by Sandra Pesmen. a former Chicago Daily News reporter and Cram Communications Inc. editor.

For the first three I sold retail, durinl the last five I was selling to contractors and didn't have much contact with the general public. I'd like to get out of this altogether. What other options would I have in obtaining a jub outeKle this field? Arm. If you have been selling tile, you can probably sell a number of other items, and can move easily into another industry by showing potential employers that successful experience But if you mean you want to get out of the sales profession, that's an entirely different situation. Actually, the transition to marketing from sales Is not difficult. There are so many jobs available today-and suddently so few good people to fill them-that you can go to almost any employment agency, or look in classified ads. to begin investigating opportunities. Also talk to friends and associates about other companies that need salespeople or marketing managers. Don't quit the job you have, but start serious interviews with people inside the industnes or professions you WANT to move to. You're in the most fortunate position. Since you're nol out of work and desperate, you can take the time to move slowly and make sensible decisions without pressure. Q. 2: I've done so many things in my 36 years. I wish I knew what I really wanted to do. I know I have excellent working skills and am always promoted at every job I've taken, with not a lot of extra pay. But I'm a 9 a.m. to 5 p m person. I've done hair styling for 1 6 years, among many other things. In between I wem to scnooi lor court repomng ana found that being at a computer wasn't for me. I'm now paying back a student loan for something I'm just not using I wish there was a place where I could find what job best suits me. I feel I'm much loo old to still be searching for a job that will render a great income with some freedom. Am I asking too much? Where do I go? Please help. Ant. Unfortunately, there Isn't a way to just reach into the air and find a great job. trom 9 to 5 that win render a great income with freedom doing something that really turns you on. I doesn't work that way. You start with some aptitude and personality testing to discover exactly what aptitudes you have because that's the work you'H probably enjoy doing most And when you enjoy the wo, the hours fly by and you don't mind staying even longer. Also, when you're doing work you're suited for, you do it better than others and find you do get promoted into the lop pay brackets more quickly By 36. 1 agree, you should know where you're going But many 36-year-olds don't. Smart ones go to a local college and see career counselors and ask tor the testing I deserved. That should point you in the right direction and offer you inexpensive courses lo fill in the blanks when you discover what they are Two pnvate sources for thai testino are Nationwide TemDerament Profiles. 800 4299770. and Johnson O'Connor Research f-ounaaiion. inc m two u&bo A . 1 i jy -"i ,r - - at ! -1 tH at V 4 lOirt irfi 0t a pnf ifc. 1 r ift Tff nrr -TTurft m ati i inr " ifl f f , if '' Aj a.i 1 ,
