>MY FAVORITE TV LAWMEN

The actor, 42, who returns Feb. 9 as U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens on FX’s Justified, presents his lineup of top television cops.

REED AND MALLOY (KENT MCCORD AND MARTIN MILNER, ADAM-12)

I liked those dudes just because I had the lunch box. I think that was my mother taking care of her boys: My brother had Emergency! and I had the 1-Adam-12.

PEPPER ANDERSON (ANGIE DICKINSON, POLICE WOMAN)

Other than she’s supersexy and has the cool, skimpy wardrobe? I don’t know, I just love her!

CATHERINE WILLOWS (MARG HELGENBERGER, CSI)

Anytime you have a cop who’s a former stripper who’s balancing the single mom with the blood-splatter analysis work? I find that very compelling. OLIVIA BENSON (MARISKA HARGITAY, LAW & ORDER: SVU) She was born after her mother was raped, and then she’s putting sex offenders away. We don’t get that enough on the show, understanding the full weight of it, but she’s fantastic.

DAVID STARSKY (PAUL MICHAEL GLASER, STARSKY & HUTCH)

Which one owned the car? Starsky. That’s why I liked him! Really, it was just about the car.
