And the first actor cast in the new “Melrose Place” is … Michael Rady.
The “Swingtown” alum landed the gig Wednesday morning, a day after the CW officially greenlighted the pilot for the “Melrose” update, to be directed by Davis Guggenheim.
On the project, penned by “Smallville” exec producers/co-showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer, Rady will play Jonah Miller, a cute and quirky 25-year-old aspiring filmmaker who makes his living as a videographer of weddings and bar mitzvahs for the rich and famous after moving to Los Angeles with his fiancee a year ago.
The role is somewhat reminiscent of struggling writer Billy (Andrew Shue) from the original Fox series.
In addition to his role as Doug Stephens on “Swingtown,” Rady co-starred in “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2” and recurred on Showtime’s “Sleeper Cell” and ABC Family’s “Greek.”
He is repped by Gersh and Station 3.
