Getting arrested wouldn't be so bad if all cops looked like Mathew St. Patrick. The Philadelphia native, who played officer-turned-bodyguard Keith Charles for five seasons on HBO's Six Feet Under (creator Alan Ball called him "way too beautiful"), dons a badge again as Detective Marjorino on FOX's drama Reunion. St. Patrick – who also played a secret agent on All My Children – admits he had reservations about playing another lawman. "But," he says, "you didn't see a lot of Keith on the job, and (Marjorino) gets to track people down and get information, so that's been interesting." St. Patrick, 37, talked to PEOPLE about his tough-guy role, staying beautiful and suffering from a serious case of dance fever.
