The Office Romance Scoop: Paging Sendhil Ramamurthy!

by at . Comments

Might Sendhil Ramamurthy sweep Kelly Kapoor off her hilarious feet, and out of The Office?

TV Guide Magazine reports that the former Heroes star and current key player on Covert Affairs has landed a guest role on the long-running NBC sitcom as a doctor who gets very cozy with Mindy Kaling's Kelly.

“[Ryan and Kelly] go through a heart-wrenching break-up,” B.J. Novak previews. “[They] end up becoming bitter enemies in the office when she falls in love with an Indian doctor. He’s very handsome and a much, much better match for Kelly than Ryan is.”

Ramamurthy will only appear in one episode, but perhaps Kelly's new romance will be the driving force behind a decision to leave Dundler Mifflin, as Kaling will anchor an upcoming comedy pilot on Fox.
