‘Southland’ Detective Sal—actor Michael McGrady—reads Mr. Media his Miranda rights!

Michael McGrady continues a strong career in television and film with his series regular role on NBC’s breakout hit, “Southland.” As Daniel “Sal” Salinger, a supervising detective in the gang unit, McGrady brings his experience as an actor who knows his character’s world and how to exist in it.

He starred opposite Taye Diggs in the ABC series “Day Break,” had recurring roles on “24,” “The Riches,” and “CSI: Miami,” and has had countless guest-star appearances including “Prison Break,” “Leverage,” “The Mentalist,” ”Big Love,” and “Bones.”

Of his many film roles, the most asked about found him starring as Lou Gehrig opposite John Goodman in “The Babe,” as Larry Fortensky in “Liz: The Elizabeth Taylor Story” and as boxer John Shanssey, who was the best friend of Kevin Costner’s “Wyatt Earp.” As varied as his acting resume, his “real” life is equally diverse. McGrady is an extreme athlete, artist, father, sports coach, motivational speaker and cancer survivor.

A role on “The Love Boat” was his first television credit, and he appeared in the FOX feature “The Bear,” about legendary football coach Bear Bryant.

He hopes soon to be able to show his more comedic side on camera, but for now he is happy as part of the John Wells dream team on “Southland.”
