So tonight, after you finish watching Grey’s, stick around on ABC to catch the series premiere of Notes from the Underbelly starring cutie Sunkrish Bala as Eric, a very excited father-to-be. Grey’s fans will recognize Bala from another excited state: as Meredith’s one-night stand who, er, couldn’t control his excitement with a painful looking case of priapism. Read Sunkrish’s interview with Nirali here as he talks about his character on Notes and working in Hollywood today.
In an email, Sunkrish writes:
While I will be grateful enough for you to watch Notes from the Underbelly and laugh and tell your friends to do the same, it would mean very much to me if forward-thinking individuals such as yourself took the time to write a letter to ABC letting them know how much you appreciate an actor-of-color playing an ethnically-ambiguous part on television. (Yes, TV execs do read them).”
I can’t wait to watch. Please tune in and let us know what you thought of the show.
