Actor Costas Mandylor, 35, grew up in Melbourne with a passion for Anthony Quinn movies, The Godfather and his Greek-born mother's chicken and rice with red sauce. But the 5' 11" former pro soccer player - whose acting resume includes T.V.'s Picket Fences and next year's Sean Penn directed film The Pledge - is no mama's boy. "He's a little bit wild," says Lynda McCormack, the makeup artist on Mandylor's upcoming CBS movie Nora Roberts' Sanctuary. Or as the film's costume designer Noreen Landry puts it: "This is a man we're talking about, not a boy." A single man, by the way, who has a clear idea about what is not sexy in life - "Mind games and flashy cars" - and what is: "A man and a woman having hunger for each other."
