Entertainment Weekly’s got a brief look at the upcoming Heroes Season 3, and posted a new picture of Hiro and his would-be arch nemesis, Daphne (played by Brea Grant) from what looks like the photoshoot the two had done a while back, when Grant’s character was first unveiled to the media. But I haven’t seen this picture before, so here’s another look at Hiro and Daphne in a photoshoot. If you look at the latest Heroes promo, “Choose a Side”, you’ll see Hiro, having stopped time, and in the same scene with Daphne, the speedster. Look closely!
Season 3 of Heroes kicks into overdrive with a new superfast villain: Daphne, or ”The Speedster” (Brea Grant, best known as Friday Night Lights’ brainy Jean). In Heroes’ premiere (Sept. 22, NBC), seen here, she steals ”something Hiro [Masi Oka] needs for his quest.” But, says Grant, when Hiro stops time, she slows to regular speed. ”It’s a Batman-Joker thing. We cancel each other’s powers.”
I don’t know why they keep mentioning the Batman-Joker thing. Joker was a homicidal maniac and Batman had some serious problems himself.
As an aside, I was watching “Austin Powers Goldmember” over the weekend, and saw a brief cameo by Masi Oka during the movie’s Japanese scenes. Look closely at the scene where Austin Powers crashes into a Godzilla float, and two Japanese guys run out to point and shout at it. Funny stuff.
Here’s the scene:
