As some of you may already know, Masi Oka is a regular on the CBS show “Hawaii Five-0″, but it looks like he’s expanding into movies again. Oka will produce a live-action version of the Japanese manga/anime “Bleach” for Warner Bros. with his “Get Smart” director Peter Segal. (via Variety)

NBC “Strongly Considering” Renewing Heroes for Season 5

The Hollywood Reporter has updated their list of shows currently on the network bubble (that is, shows that can go either way — cancellation or renewal), and while Heroes remains a mystery (NBC still refuses to make a decision on it), THR does give Heroes fans room for optimism. They write about the show’s chances:

Heroes Season 4 Set Pics: Tracy Meets Samuel

The website AliLarterFan got their hands on some new shots from the Heroes Season 4 set. These show Tracy Strauss (Ali Larter) on the sidewalk coming face to face with Season 4′s new villain, Samuel (played by Prison Break’s Robert Knepper). Tracy doesn’t look all that surprised to see Samuel (or maybe she just hides it well), but Samuel looks, well, kind of confused. Then again, these shots were probably snapped between takes, so the context for the scene is probably something else entirely.

Ali Larter Gets Married

This obviously has nothing to do with the show, but it’s a happy occasion so why not share in it. As you may or may not have heard, Heroes star Ali Larter has gotten married to her boyfriend, Hayes MacArthur yesterday in a small ceremony on the MacArthur Kennebunkport, Maine estate.

Bryan Fuller on Tracy Strauss and the Last Four Episodes of Heroes Season 3

Bryan Fuller has been hailed as the savior of Heroes, so it’s only fitting that we allow him to tell us where the show went wrong while he was off doing his own show (the now-canceled Pushing Daisies), and how he’s going to whip it back into form. And oh yeah, Fuller also puts the kibosh on the whole “is she or isn’t she dead?” question regarding Ali Larter’s Tracy Strauss, and teases us on the final four episodes of Heroes Season 3.

Heroes News Roundup: Someone Wants Out, Greg Grunberg, New Heroes Writer Speaks, PCA

Today’s Heroes news roundup is a pretty full one, but probably the most important has to be comic book/screenwriter Mark Verheiden joining the show as a writer/”consultant”, who along with the returning Bryan Fuller are replacing the departed Jeph Loeb and Jesse Alexander. Verheiden comes with an impressive resume, having just recently worked on Battlestar Galactica, the show all the critics have been going ga-ga over. Speaking of which, those same critics may have had problems with Heroes’ Season 3, but apparently the viewers didn’t, because Heroes won the People’s Choice Awards for Favorite Sci-Fi Fantasy Show, beating out the CW’s Supernatural and Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles last night. Take that, critics!

What’s Going on With Ali Larter’s Character? – SPOILERS

So what’s Ali Larter’s Niki/Jessica Sanders (or is it now Tracy Strauss?) character been up to on Heroes? It’s probably not a stretch to say that the entire Sanders clan didn’t exactly have a lot to do in Season 2, with Niki mostly spending her time in New Orleans daydreaming about her dearly departed hubby D.L., a man with the power to phase through any object, but for some reason forgot to use it when someone shot him. (Yes, that was very convincing, writers of Heroes.) Of course, we can explain away Ali Larter’s lack of activity in Season 2 to Ali’s burgeoning movie career, as she had roles in not one, not two, but four movies in 2007 alone. So what can we expect from Ali Larter and her characters in Season 3? Let’s see what we know already… SPOILERS BELOW.
