Besides his regular stint on “Hawaii Five-O”, Masi Oka has found time to do movies. His latest is 2011′s “Searching for Sonny”, in which he plays a guy who goes missing. You don’t really see a whole lot of him in the trailer, but hey, he is basically at the center of the movie, so I’m guessing he’ll at least have something to do in the movie. Check out the trailer below.

With all the former Heroes cast landing new shows (Ali Larter in CIA drama “The Asset”, Masi Oka on “Hawaii Five-O”, Milo Ventimiglia on L.A.

Andrew Connolly is the Other Sullivan Brother

A quickie casting addition: former Lost castmember Andrew Connolly has joined the Heroes Season 4 cast in a multi-episode arc. The Hollywood Reporter says Connolly will play the brother of Samuel Sullivan (played by Robert Knepper), Season 4′s new villain/mysterious man who has been going around recruiting people with powers. Since we know that Samuel used to have a brother name Joseph, I think it’s safe to say that Connolly will be playing Joseph, perhaps in flashback, or possibly featured in some time-traveling episodes, of which there seems to be a lot of in the upcoming season.
