Melrose Place’s Michael Rady Joining THE MENTALIST

Actor Michael Rady, most recently seen on the short-lived remake of Melrose Place, has been cast as the new head of the CBI on THE MENTALIST.

According to the folks over at TV Line, he will play Luther Wainwright, the very educated, fresh-faced special agent in charge of Patrick Jane and the rest of the team. While his character “has very little field experience under his belt, he is a fast learner who will eventually be able to go toe-to-toe with Jane”.

Moviegoers will remember Rady from his roles in the box office films The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and its sequel as well as a recurring role on Greek.

The Mentalist returns for its fourth season on CBS on September 22 at 10/9 c.
