I’m not usually a morbid person, but I’ve been screaming “Kill Mohinder Suresh!” in the general direction of my TV for almost four seasons now. As Heroes started to go downhill, the bland scientist (played by Sendhil Ramamurthy) began to symbolize everything that was so bad about a show that used to be so good. His only real character trait was the amazing power to always make friends with the wrong people. Worse still, his narration bookended every episode with insipid, subtle-as-a-brick-to-the-head thematic talk that made Meredith Grey sound like Shakespeare.
Although still listed as a series regular, Ramamurthy has been mostly absent this season, except for one terrible episode that teased viewers with a Mohinder death scene but then copped out (thanks, time travel!). However, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Ramamurthy has been cast in the dramedy pilot Rex Is Not Your Lawyer, starring (geekgasm!) Dr. Who‘s David Tennant as an attorney who starts suffering from panic attacks.
Does this mean that Mohinder will soon be gone for good? An NBC rep tells EW that “Rex is just a pilot right now, so [Ramamurthy] is still on Heroes,” and clarifies that “Rex is in second position to Heroes.” READ FULL STORY
