Michael Rady is heading back into the CW fold with a recurring stint on the network’s promising new dramedy Jane the Virgin.

The Melrose Place and Emily Owens M.D. grad will play Lachlan, a rival to Justin Baldoni’s Rafael. Not only was Lachlan hand-picked by Rafael’s father, Emilio, to head up the company, he has a surprising history with his wife, Petra (Yael Groblas).

Rady’s other credits include Greek, The Mentalist, House of Lies and, most recently, CBS’ ill-fated Intelligence.

Jane the Virgin premieres Monday, Oct. 13 at 9 on CW56.
