>MY FAVORITE CRIME FIGHTERS

Moving from FOX to Lifetime for his 25th season chasing down fugitives, the legendary host, 65, fingers four heroes he’d want on the case.

BATMAN

I’ve loved Batman since I was a little boy—I loved him because he didn’t really have superpowers. I sort of identified with him.

DICK TRACY

I’ve always loved Dick Tracy. I was written into the Dick Tracy [comic-strip] series, helping them look for their toughest criminals. It was a real honor.

SHERLOCK HOLMES

My all-time favorite, [for] his intuitive powers and the way he used alternative resources to help people, whether they had money or not.

BROCK SAMSON

The former bodyguard from The Venture Bros. cartoon is a fantastic, funny character. I have bodyguards; he’s kind of their antithesis—hard-living.
