EXCLUSIVE: 'Prime Suspect' Star Kirk Acevedo on Women, Shoes and Rita Moreno

NBC

Puerto Rican actor Kirk Acevedo is very sexy as an NYPD detective on the new procedural, Prime Suspect (premiering tonight at 10/9 on NBC). So rather than ask the hunky actor (Oz, Fringe) what it's like to play a cop on TV, we asked Kirk a few fun questions about women, working out and making out!

9 Latino Faces To Watch on TV This Fall!

What's your favorite on-screen kiss of all time?

Definitely the scene in a pilot called Paradise for Showtime where I met my wife (Kiersten Warren). Hands down. Yeah, that was fun. 

What do you find most attractive in a woman?

I like a woman who has a vocabulary larger than "shoes" and "handbags." But a nice pair of legs to go in the shoes is always good too.

What do women compliment you on most?

Probably my voice. And my eyes. (Laughing). I don't know if I should answer that or if I know what women think of me. You should maybe ask some women.

Who is your biggest Latina crush?

Rita Moreno. In my opinion there's Rita and then everybody else. She worked on OZ with me. Huge crush. The stories that woman has.

Do you workout?

I am much more wired to be an athlete than anything else. I understand the hard work = payoff equation in sports. I run marathons and I box. And that's my Puerto Rican flag hanging in Freddie Roach's Wild Card Boxing gym. I gave it to him. My last NYC marathon time I ran in three hours flat. I intend to beat that this year.
