Michael Vartan

Michael Vartan is looking for some Satisfaction!

The actor, whose credits include Alias and A&E's Bates Motel, has signed on to recur in USA's provocative new drama about the problems that arise when a marriage reaches its midpoint. 

Starring Matt Passmore (The Glades) as investment banker Neil Truman, and Stephanie Szostak (The Devil Wears Prada) as his unhappy wife Grace, the series asks, "What do you do when having it all is not enough?"

Summer's must-watch new shows

If you're Grace, the answer is to hire a male escort! Unfortunately for viewers, Vartan is not playing said escort. Instead, he will play Dylan, a daring photographer who helps Grace gain exposure in the design world.

Satisfaction premieres Thursday, July 17 at 10/9c on USA.
