Underappreciated Actor of Another Color #12: Sendhil Ramamurthy
Despite the ridiculous hotness which comes with his British accent on Heroes, Mr. Thang here is an American, born (Chicago) and raised (San Antonio).
Like a certain chocolate goddess, Sendhil Ramamurthy is Tamil Indian (yeah, I know...it must be genetic or something) and those eyes and lips of his should come with a giant manufacturer's warning label. Especially after he played a seriously delicious hottie in a Bollywood episode of Psych (which his cousin directed, by the way).
I, for one, am excited he's leaving Heroes; he went from being the sweaty, shirtless, British-accented, love-making Royal Hotness to one of the many underappreciated and underused POC on the show who didn't get axed way too soon. Seriously, though...Heroes is a lot like the Titanic - an impressive, expensive, and ultimately sinking wonder.
It's about damn time Ramamurthy got a new show. And he better get shirtless and sweaty in this one too, otherwise you best believe someone will be gettin' an earful from Moi.
