Linda Barshak,Boynton Beach, Fla.
The New York native has been a character actor in many movies and TV series over the past 10 years, from Lie to Me to Without a Trace to Leverage, but has come into his own as ambitious and obnoxious lawyer Louis Litt on USA Network’s Suits. One of his career highlights probably was not his near-death experience filming the 2007 action movie The Condemned, when he had a severe allergic reaction after eating macadamia nuts. So you’re unlikely to see macadamias in any legal break rooms on Suits, which returns with new episodes of its second season Jan. 17 and has been renewed for a third season.
