EXCLUSIVE: Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy has booked a pair of hero-themed roles with a regular cast gig in British drama Stan Lee’s Lucky Man for Sky1, and a guest arc on NBC’s event mini Heroes Reborn. Ramamurthy is the latest original cast member to sign up for the Heroes follow-up. In the 2006-2010 cult series, he played Dr Mohinder Suresh, a geneticist seeking the truth behind his father’s murder and the continuation of his research into evolved humans. The character is the fifth from the original show due to appear in Heroes Reborn along with Jack Coleman’s Noah Bennet, Masi Oka’s Hiro Nakamura, Greg Grunberg’s Matt Parkman and Jimmy Jean-Louis’ The Haitian.

The Missing‘s James Nesbitt stars as a cop from Central London’s notorious Murder Squad who’s given a charm that seems to confer upon the wearer the ability to control luck. Lucky Man is due to air in 2016.
Ramamurthy’s TV credits include The Office, Covert Affairs, and Beauty And The Beast. He’s repped by Paradigm, The Artists Partnership, and Carlos K. Goodman of Bloom Hergott.
