Welcome “Raj” to Nip/Tuck

by Jennifer Squires Biller

If you caught the first two episodes of Nip/Tuck you may have thought you were watching Aliens in America meet Grey’s Anatomy. You weren’t. But you were seeing one of TV’s finest comedy actors in his new role.

Aliens in America alumnus, Adhir Kalyan, who played the adorable Raja on the CW comedy has joined Nip/Tuck as a young genius plastic surgeon. Humorously, his character’s name is Dr. Raj. Clearly, the Nip/Tuck folks loved Raja as much as I did and gave him the moniker of “Raj” in honor of his Aliens character.

Nip/Tuck gets the award for best casting coup this season. Kalyan is always spectacular, and he didn’t disappoint in his first two episodes.

However, please Nip/Tuck writers, do not ever force me to watch another sexual scene starring Kalyan again. He’s my little Raja, not Christian Troy! Raj shouldn’t be having sex, especially the kind of depraved shenanigans he was part of last week. Leave the butt bearing to Sean and Christian, please.

And welcome “Raj” to Nip/Tuck. I hope you are a good influence and a role model for the boys. Lord knows they could use one.
