    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.

    • Phil says:

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

    • lorna says:

      he was SOOOOOOOOOOO lame in melrose. i liked the remake somewhat, but good god he was dull and his fiancee. but he was incredible in sisterhood of the traveling pants role. how can that be?

  2. luke says:

    I liked him on melrose place. If this new show gets picked up, I hope he is gonna be shirtless very often

  3. Linda says:

    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?

  4. kevin says:

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

  5. sarah says:

    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

  6. gemapet says:

    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.

  7. shaun says:

    Season 1 of Greys Anatomy again?

  8. Tee says:

    No interest in this show, but oh he was cute on Greek.

  9. Crow says:

    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?

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

  11. Okay, I found it. This guy for Spike Spiegel in Cowboy Bebop, the live action movie.
