It seems like Adrian Pasdar is channeling the bad-guy qualities that helped define his Heroes character with the news that he’s set to guest-star on Rosewood as a doctor with decidedly questionable motives.

EW has learned exclusively that Pasdar will appear on the show’s fourth episode, slated to air on Oct. 14. Pasdar — who played Senator Nathan Petrelli on Heroes — has been tapped for the role of Dr. Derek Foster, whom Rosewood (Morris Chesnut) and Detective Villa (Jaine Lee Ortiz) suspect of killing two of his patients.
