Evil

He appeared as Ben Shakir in the CBS/Paramount+ series Evil. Ben is a rather easygoing individual who prefers to remain to himself. He is incredibly intelligent, as seen by his work on nearly every technology-related topic, and he thinks outside the box when looking for a solution. While he can be judgmental in situations of demonic possession because he is an even bigger skeptic than Kristen, Ben attempts to keep this to himself so as not to offend anyone. For the most part, he is pleasant and prepared to put aside his own interests in order to assist others. Ben is a man of ordinary height and Indian origin. He has short black hair and brown eyes.

He has a considerably more relaxed dress sense than his coworkers and is usually seen wearing jeans and t-shirts rather than suits. He assists David Acosta as a technical and building expert. It is Ben’s responsibility to determine whether any electronic or environmental reasons could be linked to the accusations of demonic possession.

Blue Bloods

Aasif appeared as Samar Charwell, served as the District Attorney of New York County before being arrested in the American police procedural drama television series Blue Bloods. The series chronicles the Reagan family, who have a long history of policing in New York. Frank Reagan is the New York Police Department’s Police Commissioner, a position his father previously held.

Frank’s eldest surviving son, Danny, is an NYPD detective, and his youngest son, Jamie, is a Harvard-educated NYPD sergeant; his daughter, Erin, works as a New York City assistant district attorney. Joe, Frank’s second-born son (the series incorrectly refers to him as the eldest in later episodes), was murdered in the line of duty by a corrupt cop in circumstances that occurred prior to the series, when he was involved with an FBI investigation of a ring of corrupt NYPD cops known as the Blue Templar.

Henry, Frank’s father, is a former NYPD beat cop who rose through the ranks to become the police commissioner. The show’s title refers to both the “blue-blooded” concept of nobility as it relates to the Reagan family’s powerful roles within New York’s criminal justice system and an entire family who devotes their lives to law enforcement, one that “bleeds blue” to match the blue color of NYPD uniforms.
