With his coal-black hair and slightly olive-skinned complexion, U.S.-born supporting actor Michael Rady often fell into an "ethnic" casting niche. His memorable roles included Kostas, the Greek lover of Lena (Alexis Bledel), in Ken Kwapis' delightful coming-of-age tale Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Nick Zingaro in Andrew Davis' adventure drama The Guardian (2006). In 2008, Rady reprised his Traveling Pants role for the sequel. In the years to come, Rady would find success on the small screen on the reboot of Melrose Place and the proceedural The Mentalist.
