He also portrayed recurring character Frank Barnes on Showtime's Ray Donovan and Detective Philip Vanatter on FX's American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

McGrady gave his voice and likeness to Rockstar Games' period video game L.A. Noire as Rusty Galloway, and most recently appeared in the film Freelancers. He then starred in the AMC-produced series Low Winter Sun as Brendan McCann, and as Cy in the indie film Blue Potato. After that, he portrayed Detective John Gentile in The Frozen Ground. Aside from acting, McGrady is also a painter and his work was featured in various galleries.
