Graceland alum, Brandon Jay McLaren has joined Dick Wolf’s hit NBC drama series Chicago Fire in a recurring role. He’ll play a former gangbanger-turned-politician. McLaren played Dale Jakes on all three seasons of USA Network’s Graceland. He also recurred on AMC’s The Killing and Canadian series Being Erica. On the film side, he appeared in horror comedy feature Tucker And Dale Vs. Evil. McLaren is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates, Berwick & Kovacik and Trisko Talent Management.

Ryan McPartlin has signed on for a recurring role in the fourth season of Lifetime’s soapy mystery drama series Devious Maids. McPartlin will play Kyle, a sweet, fun, and impossibly sexy new neighbor. He’s basically every woman’s fantasy except for one small catch — he has an unusually close relationship with his mother. McPartlin, repped by Primary Wave Entertainment and Gersh, most recently starred opposite Mayim Bialik in Lifetime’s The Flight Before Christmas, and is best known for his series regular role as Captain Awesome on NBC’s Chuck. Feature credits include The Right Kind Of Wrong and J.Edgar.
