Grant was also featured in a recurring role in episodes of “Private Practice,” starred opposite Jenna Elfman in “Accidentally on Purpose,” his first sitcom, and appeared in the recurrent role of Michael Sainte in “Big Love.” He was on Broadway in 1999 playing a doctor in “Wit.” In 2012, he starred in the movie “The Possession” and in 2013 began his role as Spence Westmore on “Devious Maids.” In March 2017, he was cast in The CW's “Dynasty” reboot.
