Michael Vartan is in love. Crazy, head over heels in love. The lucky lady? His chocolate Labrador, Millie. “I get e-mails from my friends saying, ‘Dude, you have to get a girlfriend,’ “ he says, only half joking. No doubt Vartan’s single status is good news for the Alias star’s female fan contingent, as is the fact that Vartan, 40, is back on TV, this time on TNT’s new hospital drama, HawthoRNe, and costarring with Jada Pinkett Smith. We chatted with the handsome heartthrob about his new show, his bad habits, and his perfect mate.

ON COMING BACK TO TV: “I read this script, and it was just so well written. It’s very rare that an actor at my level gets offered stuff that’s really that good. It’s very different than Alias, but the common thread is that it’s got a very strong leading lady who gets to be vulnerable and flawed and strong and giving. And the internal strife between the nurses and the doctor is really interesting.”
