Heroes alum Sendhil Ramamurthy has been been tasked with swooping in to romance the adorably clueless paper pusher, TVLine has confirmed.
“[Ryan and Kelly] go through a heart-wrenching break-up,” B.J. Novak tells TV Guide Magazine, who first reported the casting news. “[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 — who now co-stars on USA Network’s Covert Affairs — is currently slated to appear in just one Office episode.
