Evan Handler (born January 10, 1961) is an American actor and leukemia survivor who is perhaps best known for playing Harry Goldenblatt, Charlotte's divorce attorney and later husband, on Sex and the City and Charlie Runkle, Hank's friend and agent, on Californication.

He was a co-star in the ABC sitcoms It's Like, You Know... and Hot Properties and starred in the ill-fated FOX sitcom Woops!.

Handler can currently be seen on Californication where he plays Charlie Runkle, the best friend and agent to David Duchovny's character, Hank Moody.


Handler is also an author. His first book, Time On Fire: My Comedy of Terrors, told the story of his unlikely recovery from Acute Myeloid Leukemia in his mid-twenties. His second, It's Only Temporary...The Good News and the Bad News of Being Alive was released in May, 2008. .


Handler was born in New York City, the son of Enid Irene, a mental health administrator, and Murry Raymond Handler, an agency owner and advertising designer.
