Fox Pilot News: Frankenstein Doc to Be Played By Rules of Engagement Alum

Rules of Engagement‘s Adhir Kalyan will help bring Fox’s Frankenstein pilot to life.

The contemporary retelling of the Gothic tale follows Ray Pritchard, a morally corrupt cop who is given a second chance at life when he is brought back from the dead. Now younger and stronger, Pritchard will have to choose between his old temptations and his new sense of purpose.

Per our sister site Deadline, Kalyan will play Otto Goodwin, a brilliant Internet billionaire who, with his bioengineer twin sister Mary, seize the challenge of reanimating a dead man.

Kalyan’s previous TV credits also include Nip/Tuck and Aliens in America.

    Glad he’s returning to TV. He was good on Aliens In America & Rules of Engagement.

    So cop procedural with a supernatural twist?

    I loved him on Aliens in America, but I’d reached my fix of jackass cops with a sense of purpose years ago, filtering this tired concept through a filter of Frankenstein or some other classic story won’t be enough to make it fresh or interesting…

    That casting makes me wonder what kind of tone this show would have. Hard to imagine that actor being at all sinister or intimidating from his résumé or picture.

      He’s probably going to be the comic relief while the sister character and the reanimated guy are very serious and have a romantic relationship.

    This sounds *nothing* like the actual Frankenstein story. There’s not one part of the description that has anything in common with the novel. As a literature buff, it’s irritating. Give the show a different title.
