In LEGION, now in its third and final season on FX Monday nights, Navid Negahban plays Amahl Farouk. Farouk isn’t anybody’s garden-variety antagonist.

In Season 1 and part of Season 2, Farouk took on the form of David’s psych hospital buddy Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), and then possessed scientist Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement).

FX’s new vampire mockumentary series WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS, premiering Wednesday March 27, is based on the 2014 feature film. Both are created by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement (Cori Gonzalez-Macuer also worked on the film script), and both revolve around small groups of vampires who believe they’re a lot cooler than they really are.
