Amanda Seyfried and new boyfriend Desmond Harrington cemented their relationship status with a trip to New York City over the weekend. The two lovebirds were spotted strolling through the West Village hand-in-hand while walking Seyfried’s pet pooch Finn.

Celebuzz exclusively confirmed that the Les Miserables star has been cozying up to her Dexter hunk since July when an eyewitness saw them kissing over dinner at Hollywood pub, The Pikey.

So just who is Seyfried’s new leading man? Celebuzz compiled a list of five things you don’t know about the 36-year-old actor, who plays Detective Quinn on Showtime’s Dexter.

1. He’s almost 10 years her senior – he was born on Oct. 19, 1976 while Seyfried was born on Dec. 3, 1985.

2. He’s a city boy with southern charm. Harrington was born in Savannah but was raised in the Bronx.

3. He’s always been a bad boy — he had trouble during his formative years at both of his Catholic schools in the Big Apple, St. Margaret’s of Cortona for elementary school and Fordham Prep for high school.

4. He’s had a variety of odd jobs before making it big in Tinseltown: a landscaper, cold caller at a brokerage firm, and a bartender in Manhattan.

5. After gaining some weight during his early Dexter days, photos show the handsome actor shed a dramatic amount of weight in 2011.
