Vik Sahay BonesChuck grad Vik Sahay is spying a return to the small screen with a Six Feet Under-esque guest stint on Bones, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Sahay 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.

  • I am not ashamed to admit that I actually squee’d out loud when I read that headline. *sigh* Please, let him bring Jeffster! with him. (Or maybe not – that might be too much awesome for me to handle at one go.)

  • Next to Yvonne, I thought Vik was the second best actor on the show.

  • Every time Vik got something to actually do on the show Chuck, you could see how good he could be.

  • Yay! Loved Vic on “Chuck” and miss seeing him on the tube. It’s my hope he’ll get his own show as he’s really funny and has some chops. I miss “Chuck” and all the actors on that show. They were a stellar cast. I’d love to see him join the “Big Bang Theory” cast. That could make for fun times.

  • Gosh, how I miss CHUCK. I’m obsessively following all of the cast’s career pursuits (until the CHUCK movie. Ahem.) and so far they’ve turned me to DEXTER (Yvonne), LEVERAGE (Adam), and now BONES. And though Zac’s comedy pilot didn’t get picked up, he’s gonna kick ass on the big screen with THOR 2. So excited for this talented cast.

  • Vick seems to be doing mostly movies, American Reunion, My Awkward Sexual Adventure, Wer. Pretty successful! And I read that the pilot he’s doing “Satisfaction”, has Luke Macfarlane, from “Brothers and Sisters” in it. Coooool!
