Career

[>http://www.askmen.com/celebs/women/actress/angie_harmon/index.html] ] She then starred in several television series, including "Baywatch Nights", "Baywatch" and "C-16: FBI"; she also appeared in the 1998 film, "Lawn Dogs", which received only a limited theatrical release. In the early 2000s, Harmon became better known as playing Abbie Carmichael on the series "Law & Order", a role she played from 1998 to 2001. During this time, she also voiced Barbara Gordon in the animated film, "", replacing Stockard Channing, as well as appearing on "Law & Order".

Harmon left "Law & Order" to concentrate on her film career, saying that she preferred working in film than television.cite web|title=Cinema Confidential|work=INTERVIEW: Angie Harmon on "Agent Cody Banks"|url=http://www.cinecon.com/news.php?id=0303181|accessmonthday=March 23|accessyear=2006] After appearing in the 2001 direct-to-video film "Good Advice", she had a major role in "Agent Cody Banks", playing the CIA handler of a teenage agent (Frankie Muniz). The film opened in March 2003 and became a minor hit, grossing $47 million.cite web|title=The Numbers|work=Frankie Muniz - Box Office Data Movie Star|url=http://www.the-numbers.com/people/FMUNI.html|accessmonthday=March 23|accessyear=2006] Although Harmon was originally scheduled to appear in the sequel, the producers chose to take a more comedic approach, and replaced Harmon with Anthony Anderson.cite web|title=About.com|work=Back as Agent Cody Banks|url=http://actionadventure.about.com/cs/weeklystories/a/aa031104.htm|accessmonthday=March 23|accessyear=2006] In 2006, Harmon co-starred with Cuba Gooding Jr. and James Woods in the direct-to-DVD political suspense drama "End Game".

In 2006, Harmon starred as the lead in the ABC pilot "Secrets of a Small Town". Despite testing highly with focus groups, the pilot was not picked up by ABC due to its high budget. She also starred in another failed television show on NBC, "Inconceivable." The program was canceled after two episodes.

In 2007, she starred in another ABC pilot, "Women's Murder Club", a police drama which was picked up by ABC.

Personal life

Harmon is married to former professional football player Jason Sehorn. The two were engaged on March 13, 2000. Harmon was taping an interview segment on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno" when Leno called Sehorn out as a surprise guest.
