Sendhil Ramamurthy and Kristen Bell Reunite on The Lifeguard

Kristen Bell, Zachary Quinto and Sendhil Ramamurthy

Looks like there’s a “Heroes” reunion going on on the set of “The Lifeguard”, an indie film starring Kristen Bell as “a reporter on the verge of 30 who abandons her life in New York City, returns home to get her high school job as a lifeguard, and starts a dangerous relationship with a 16-year-old delinquent.” No word on what character Sendhil Ramamurthy will play in the movie, but he’s coming off the USA Network show “Covert Affairs”, where he was recently killed off in the season premiere.

Bell’s casting for the indie drama was made by Deadline, while Sendhil’s casting was made via Twitter.

It’s been a while, but I don’t recall if the two actors actually ever crossed paths on the show. Or did they? Maybe someone can confirm or deny this.

“The Lifeguard” was written and will be directed by Liz Garcia, and will co-star Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr, Alex Shaffer, Joshua Harto and Amy Madigan.

    I think it’s in “Powerless,” when Sylar is holding Suresh, Molly, and Maya captive, and Ellie rescues them. I don’t recall any other parts when they’re together. And thanks for the update.

    • Sara

      They’re together in a large portion of season 2, actually. Mohinder is pretending to work with the company, specifically with Bob, and Bob introduces him to Elle. She even asks him if his superpower is being a punching bag.

        You just proved that I need to watch the series again…
