Hari Dhillon (Holby City) has joined the cast of NBC’s breakout dramedy This Is Us in a recurring role.

Starring Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia and Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us follows an ensemble — some of them sharing the same birthday — whose life stories intertwine in curious ways. Justin Hartley, Chrissy Metz, Susan Kelechi Watson, Chris Sullivan and Ron Cephas Jones co-star. Dhillon will play Sanjay, a workplace rival of Randall (Brown).

Dhillon also recurs on Law & Order: SVU. His credits include Madam Secretary and the lead role in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Disgraced on Broadway. He is known to audiences in the UK for playing a sexy maverick doctor on the long-running BBC series Holby City. He’s repped by Roxane Vacca in the UK and Inspire Entertainment.

This Is Us returns 9 PM Tuesday, January 10, on NBC.
