Pakistani-American actor Faran Tahir ─ you may recognise him as Raza in Iron Man (2008) and Captain Robau in Star Trek (2009) ─ will be starring in the final season of popular American political drama series Scandal.

Faran, who is now 53 years old (but hardly looks it?!), has been part of Hollywood for over 25 years now. He has guest starred in many TV series and films, with his debut appearance in Disney's live-action film The Jungle Book in 1994 as Mowgli's father.

The latest addition to Faran's acting profile will be his role as President Rashad in the seventh and final season of American TV series Scandal. The show goes on air October 5.

The 53-year-old actor will be appearing in episodes 2, 4 and 5. Details about Faran's role are being kept strictly confidential, a press release from his PR agency stated.

"No details regarding the storyline [of the show] have been shared so far [either] and the released promos have been maintaining the mystery," it added.

Alongside Scandal, Faran has been busy shooting for three other projects which include the television series Shameless and The Magicians. He will also be reprising his role as Mallick on American TV show 12 Monkeys (Season 4) in 2018.
