It’s been a while since viewers were forced to say goodbye to The CW sitcom Aliens in America, but fans of series star Adhir Kalyan (pictured at right in the photo with Aliens co-star Dan Byrd), also known as Muslim exchange student Raja Musharaff on the series, have a reason to get happy early in the New Year.
Next week, the actor debuts on the FX dramedy Nip/Tuck, which resumes its fifth season — after almost a year away! — with the midseason premiere “Ronnie Chase.” The big event takes place at 10pm EST on Tuesday, January 6.
Kalyan plays Dr. Raj this time, and you can preview his appearance in the short behind-the-scenes video after the jump. He’s looking good as a doctor, although who knows how long he’ll survive around “challenging” — to say the least — plastic surgeons Sean and Christian.
Incidentally, the South African actor also plays the character Sanjay in the upcoming Kevin James (Hitch, The King of Queens) comedy flick Paul Blart: Mall Cop, which I’m really looking forward to seeing for some reason. (It must be all those billboards I passed by while holiday shopping…)
