  • Does anyone remember him in Melrose Place over Greek? NO NO A THOUSAND TIMES NO. Max was Casey’s best love interest until the writer’s had to make him forcibly unlikable so her reunion with Cappy could feel “right.”
    He will forever live in my heart as the best thing about Greek’s second season.

    • I agree. I loved Max’s quirkiness of Greek. He was perfect to Casey.

  • I will always remember him as Alexis Bledels love interest in Sisterhood Of the Traveling Pants…what does that mean for his status on The Mentalist?

    • Means he’s getting killed off, which I figured. I just don’t get why people peddle him as an older person then he is, because he doesn’t look it.

      • He’s wasted on The Mentalist. Hope his new show is a better fit.

  • Hope his year-long stint on Mentalist maybe done after the show wraps up Season Four.

  • I liked him in Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants and I liked him on Melrose
    The CW sure likes to use actors from failed shows or actors that have guest starred on CW shows

  • Wasn’t he in that 70′s drama with Grant Show – not sure if this was pre-Greek or not? Also saw him recently on House of Lies.

  • Where is the picture for kelly mccreary?
    Everwhere the headlines says “Michael rady and kelly Mccreary have been cast in First cut” yet there is only pictures of Michael Rady. Noone has thought to use kellys’ photos?

  • Necar @zadegan is also in First Cut. She is Dr Gina … a no nonsense (rockstar like) heart surgeon.
