  • He will play Russell "Mac" McCormack. He's charming, worldly, intelligent - though not at all pretentious - and was Rob's (Kravitz) most serious boyfriend. Everything seemed to be great, then one day he moved to London, and a year later Rob is still getting over it. But Mac may not be gone from her life for good.
