A trio of casting updates for some “Heroes” actors who have landed jobs elsewhere.
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)
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:
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.
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.
If you were at the movies this weekend, you might have caught Heroes’ Ali Larter in the #1 movie in the country, “Obsessed”. Well Ali still has her day job, which is Heroes. While on the Jimmy Fallon show last week to promote “Obsessed”, Ali talked about the Heroes Season 3 finale, and the possible return of her character Tracy Strauss for Season 4. VERY MILD SPOILERS in the video after the jump.
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.
In lieu of a new episode this week, NBC will instead rerun episode 3.14, “Clear and Present Danger” (full preview here). While we wait for next week’s new episode, 3.20, “Cold Snap” (full preview here), which will also mark the much-anticipated return of Bryan Fuller to the writing staff, here is what’s going on in the Heroes-verse. The good, the bad, the sordid, and oh yeah, some upcoming episode information as well.
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!
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.
The guys at PetiteFashionista.com gave us the heads up that they recently did an interview with Hayden Panettiere on the set of Heroes, and during the article, they mention a few things that will be of great interest to Heroes fans. One in particular involves Milo, which is probably widely known by now, but the other one involves Ali Larter’s character. As always, POTENTIAL SPOILERS abound, so do not read on if you’re just going to complain about it to me later.
