Posted in cast, characters, interviews, spoilers on June 30, 2008 by Citizen

— Kristin of E! Online interviews Greg Grunberg, Dania Ramirez and new Heroes bad girl Brea Grant. Kristin asks for hints about their characters. Dania says that Maya will take off her crucifix and be on a different note this season, and Greg says that for his character, the tortoise always wins.
John says:
— Kristin of E! Online says about Ali Larter: Ali is definitely still a part of Heroes. Niki Sanders, not so much, but Ali will stick around and conjure up a whole new personality we haven’t yet seen before for season three: Tracy Strauss. (Something tells me she’ll be hot, blond and look like that chick who once wore a whipped-cream bikini for Dawson Leery.) Meanwhile, I’m pretty sure I’m hitting the set tomorrow to interview a few of the castmembers, so if you have Q’s for the Heroes cast, I know a secret place you can hide them: (I’m not sure who’ll be there, but I know Zach and Milo will be.) Also, Matt Parkman is going to end up in the desert with a horse with no name… and a tortoise. Believe it or not, I’m serious about the desert and the tortoise part. Matt’s storyline is about to get über-trippy!

According to Kristin of E! Online’s spoiler chat, Kristen Bell is still only confirmed for 5 episodes this season, but Cristine Rose will be a new regular. Also, Kristin notes that the San Diego Comi-Con will have just a sneak peak (not the full premiere), and that Sylar is going to start working with Mr. Bennet and share loads of screen time with him.

Peter and Peter

Posted in characters, pictures, spoilers on June 23, 2008 by Citizen has more set pictures of future Peter, including a shot of what looks like present and future Peter confronting each other (Peter squared?).

Mysterious mural

Posted in pictures on June 23, 2008 by Citizen

Heroes Television has a photo of a mural that was painted for shooting of Season 3 in downtown Los Angeles. The mural is a representation of an exploding earth. The scene they are shooting will involve a car chase and “exterior semi-automatic gunfire.” They will also be shooting some exterior dialog scenes. No word on which cast members might be involved in the scenes, but it definitely sounds like some excitement is going down in the upcoming season.

In a video segment of E! Online’s Watch with Kristin Show, Kristin dishes that Sylar’s heart may actually grow a few sizes in Season Three. She elaborates that he will “do some surprising good-guy stuff and will have a surprising connection to a good-guy character [we] already know.”

William Katt joins cast

Posted in cast, characters, interviews, spoilers on June 17, 2008 by Citizen

One of the original TV superheros, during a recent interview WIlliam Katt, who played the Greatest American Heroes, confirmed that he has filmed several scenes with Ali Larter (Niki). Katt says he plays a reporter that will go after Niki.

Here is the part of the article with the Heroes information:

William Katt, who played the lead role in the ’80s television show Greatest American Hero, is the latest classic sci-fi TV actor to make an appearance on the NBC show Heroes.

“I just filmed it last week,” Katt says of his appearance on Heroes. “I play a really, really wonderful, seedy, smarmy-mouthed reporter that goes after Ali Larter. It was a lot of fun.”

Although Larter’s character, Niki Sanders, was apparently trapped in a house that exploded at the end of last season, not only is she back on the set, but Katt said he worked almost exclusively with her. “She hogged me. She wanted me all to herself,” he jokes.

The actor, whose role as Ralph Hinkley on Greatest American Hero lasted three years, joins other stars of cult sci-fi classics who have appeared on Heroes, including Joanna Cassidy from Blade Runner and Star Trek actors George Takei and Nichelle Nichols.

A fan of Heroes since he first saw the pilot, Katt said he got the job because of a friendship with director Greg Beeman. “He’s a wonderful director. He’s been on the show for awhile after being up in Canada doing Smallville. Now he directs on Heroes quite a bit,” Katt says. “I did a show with him a number of years ago when we worked together on a two-hour movie of the week for NBC called Problem Child 3.”

Katt compares the comedic Greatest American Hero to the dramatic Heroes. “It’s more Hitchcockian. It’s a more dark and seedy look at the world of superheroes. It’s offering to television viewers what some of the better comic books do,” Katt says. “Tim Kring is just an extraordinary writer. And I think there’s no end to his creativity. He’s kind of mad, in an insane way. And that always makes it interesting. There are a lot of twists yet to come.”

A guest star on recent episodes of House M.D. and JAG, Katt says his Heroes character was a “really fun role” for him to play, although the character doesn’t have powers. “He has the power of persuasion. That’s what he has,” he said, then added with a laugh,” and no red suit.

Claire is not the only character on the show who is adopted. And the next adoption twist is perhaps my favorite twist ever on this show. You know how sometimes those silly promo guys say things like “It will change everything?” Well this one actually will.

Patrick in Melbourne, Australia: I’m really desperate for some Heroes news. Any news on any characters like Monica and West?
Monica will definitely be back, as will “Nana Dawson,” aka the legendary Nichelle Nichols. However, in the first few eps, our time with them in New Orleans will be centered around their relationship with Micah. As for West (Nicholas D’Agosto), I couldn’t swear to it in a court of law, but I’m fairly sure he’s gone, at least for the time being.
