Casting Scoop: MToT favorite Vik Sahay is coming to BONES!
As TVLine first reported, and which Sahay’s PR team confirmed for me, Vik Sahay is headed to BONES! One of my favorites from the CHUCK days, it’ll be nice to see him get to change it up as someone new! TVLine says Vik will “play Akshay Mirza, the eco-hip head of a funeral home that provides holistic, coffin-free burials. When his business partner and former lover is murdered, he becomes a prime suspect in the case.”
Vik Sahay fans know that he has been busy since CHUCK ended! He plays a supporting role in the Canadian sex romp MY AWKWARD SEXUAL ADVENTURE which is due for a US release in 2013. The movie, which premiered at TIFF, won the People’s Choice Awards at the Calgary International Film Festival. He was also featured in AMERICAN REUNION, and shortly after that, filmed a lead role in WER, a new werewolf movie from William Brent Bell, releasing in 2013. On the TV side, he’s snagged a series regular role in the CTV pilot SATISFACTION, which co-stars familiar faces Luke Macfarlane, Stephanie Lemelin, Ryan Belleville, and Leah Renee.
We have Yvonne on DEXTER, Vik on BONES – who’s next from the CHUCK team to snag another fun spot?
