Costas Mandylor

Sensuously handsome and full-lipped, this actor quickly established himself in a handful of featured roles in films and as a regular on the acclaimed drama series "Picket Fences" (CBS, 1992-96). Born in Australia of Greek descent, Mandylor abandoned a professional soccer career after sustaining injuries and relocated to Hollywood to pursue acting. He quickly won a co-starring role as Willem Dafoe's younger brother in the Holocaust drama "Triumph of the Spirit" (1989). Director Oliver Stone cast him as a drugged-out Italian aristocrat in his biopic "The Doors" (1991) and Mandylor went on to star as a young Frank Costello in "Mobsters" (1991), another Hollywood picture romancing the image of Chicago gangsters and Prohibition. He also played an actor in the soap opera spoof "Soapdish" (1991).
