'Dexter' Star

Patches Up Bloody

Homeless Man

8/15/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0813_dexter_star_homless_man"Dexter" star James Remar is a real life good Samaritan ... rushing to the aid of a homeless man who had a massive, bloody head wound ... and TMZ has the photo evidence.

We spoke with an eye-witness who saw Remar approach the man outside of an L.A. grocery store on Friday ... and noticed he was bleeding profusely from his head.

So Remar, being a former EMT and an all-around nice guy, went into the store ... bought a bandage and antiseptic cream ... went back to the homeless man and cleaned and dressed the wound.

We're told Remar also gave the man advice on how to keep the wound from becoming infected.

TMZ spoke to Remar's rep ... who told us James sprung into action simply because he felt it was the right thing to do.

The Code of Harry ... redefined (Dexter fans will  understand).

I think it's great that he helped out. If it really was a massive head wound that was bleeding profusely, maybe somebody should have called an ambulance (like the photographer). I am assuming TMZ exaggerated the story, but maybe they should check back up on the guy to make sure he is okay and report back to us.

Nice to know that celebrities are helping the poor unlike some stars who run out restaurants when an old woman collapses right next to them

There hasn't been enough Harry in Dexter recently... One of favorite actors who's a decent human being.

I applaude what James Remar did when hundreds probably passed by either without even noticing the man, or simply unwilling to help. I remember Remar from the movies The Warriors as Ajax, and 24 Hours as Ganz. A tender moment for such a tough guy.

go home!    

Very kind of him, but I pray to God he was wearing latex gloves when he took care of the wound. Why didnt he just call the paramedics?

Kudos to him. 99.99% of people would have passed by and not done sh*t. It's nice to know that good guys still exist out there.
