Four episodes into this season of Royal Pains, things are really starting to heat up in the Hamptons! Hollywood.com has an exclusive sneak peek at tomorrow night’s episode, entitled “Fools Russian.” (Get it? It's a pun!)
As the title suggests, in this episode Hank (Mark Feuerstein) befriends the lady interpreter of a stubborn Russian oligarch under his medical care. Meanwhile, Evan (Paulo Costanzo) and Jeremiah (Ben Shenkman) treat an internet mogul who may have caught an interesting disease during his recent trip to space (no big deal). This sneak scene focuses on the latter plot, as Paige (Brooke D’Orsay) and Evan meet the young billionaire (Ryan Hansen, of Party Down and Veronica Mars fame). Sounds exciting, doesn't it?

After spending several years playing goofballs and zany sidekicks in teen romp films, Paulo Costanzo proved he had more to offer as a character actor. He launched his career in his native Canada prior to landing supporting roles in hormonally-charged comedies such as "Road Trip" (2000) and "40 Days and 40 Nights" (2002). Costanzo positioned himself as one of Hollywood's brightest talents after he was tapped to play Matt LeBlanc's brainy but naïve nephew on the short-lived "Friends" (NBC, 1994-2004) spin-off "Joey" (NBC, 2004-06). Costanzo graduated to more adult characters in independent films, yet it was a featured role on the medical drama series "Royal Pains" (USA, 2009- ), which showcased his versatile acting skills and leading man potential.
