I am very excited for Sendhil Ramamurthy to join the cast. I can never quite figure out his characters--he always brings an edge of unpredictability to them--very exciting. I miss him in Covert Affairs but am really looking for to his joining BATB. Since this show keeps getting better, this casting addition should keep that momentum up.


We want only Cat&Vincent, soo please, don't damege this


Good actor!! Although, his character on Heroes went from being awesome in season 1 to being a complete waste of airtime by season 4 (much like the show Heroes itself).
