Ya gotta be careful with actor flesh. One wrong bite, and you’re chewing on something silicone-based and that shit is nasty. That’s why it’s always best to get fresh meat on your menu which is untainted by Hollywood glam.
Variety is reporting that U.K. up-and-comer Rahul Kohli (pictured) has been set as the final series regular role in the Rob Thomas/Diane Ruggiero CW pilot “iZombie.”
Kohli will play an enthusiastic nerd who befriends the lead character in the show based on the DC Comics/Vertigo property about a medical student-turned-zombie. He’ll star alongside David Anders, Rose McIver, Robert Buckley, Alexandra Krosney, and Malcolm Goodwin.
“iZombie” is a supernatural crime procedural that centers on Liv (McIver), a med student-turned-zombie who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective (Goodwin), she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head.
Goodwin’s Clive is a detective who recently received a promotion from Vice to Homicide but has been floundering for his first two months and is in desperate need of making a case. Though dubious at first about Liv’s “psychic” powers, she demonstrates too much accuracy for him not to take her seriously.
Buckley’s Major is Liv’s former fiancé, who is trying to transition back to being her friend despite still being in love with her. He’s a former college football player-turned-environmental engineer who is extremely likable.
Krosney plays Peyton, Liv’s best friend and roommate who is baffled by Liv’s recent behavior and feels like they’re drifting apart. Anders plays the show’s bad guy, Blaine, an entitled rich kid who bites off more than he can chew in the drug business.
We should have more soon so stay tuned!
