Category Archives: Cast: Greg Grunberg (as Matt Parkman)
Greg Grunberg’s character Matt Parkman has been missing from Heroes for the last couple of episodes, but the actor has resurfaced over at EW and according to him, he’s certain the show will have a fifth season. If nothing else, so the show can reach that magical 100 episodes, which would make it a cash cow when it goes into syndication. So, what does Greg think is the reason Heroes will be back, despite sagging ratings and mass grumblings from fans about the show’s current wayward plotlines and seemingly lack of focus? Here’s what he said:
Bummed about Bryan Fuller ditching Heroes once again? Michael Ausiello at EW went to Greg Grunberg, who promises him the best Heroes season ever. Then again, what else is he gonna say? Meanwhile, there’s a very odd video of Zachary Quinto making the rounds, and we now know (thanks to reader ashok lad) that the third episode of Heroes Season 4 will be called “Acceptance”.
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!
Remember the good old days of Heroes when you could count on Matt Parkman to be just sorta … there? Well no longer, says Greg Grunberg, who was recently Across the Pond at the London MCM Expo (the Brit version of the Comic Con), and spilled some beans about the upcoming Heroes Volume 4, titled “Fugitives”. According to Grunberg, the title is very appropriate, since it involves — well, POSSIBLE SPOILERS below. Grunberg also gets into some changes in store for his character Matt, in particular his relationship with the speedy Daphne (played by Brea Grant), and why Matt may have some dark moments ahead of him.
The last time we saw Niki Sanders, she was trapped in a burning building, and while Niki is known to be super strong (at least when she’s Jessica), I don’t think she’s fire-proof, too, is she? Maybe, maybe not. According to Kristin over at E! Online, being not fire-proof isn’t going to stop Ali Larter from returning to Heroes Season 3. And what about Matt Parkman, aka Greg Grunberg? We haven’t heard anything about him at all for Season 3, but that’s about to change. Sort of. It’s not exactly mind-blowing stuff, but there is a little bit more info on what Matt is up to in the coming season.
The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films (aka the Saturns) has announced the nominations for the 34th Annual Saturn Awards, and Heroes landed five nominations, though it was beaten out by Lost with seven nominations, and tied with Showtime’s grisly Dexter with five. Among its five nominations, Heroes scored one for Best Network Television Series and a Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series nod for Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman), but he’ll have to fight it out with fellow Hero Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura), who is nominated in the same category. Also, cheerleader Hayden Panettiere (Claire Bennet) cheered her way to a Best Supporting Actress in a Television Series nomination.
The Asian leg of the Heroes World Tour, otherwise known as Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, Ali Larter, and Sendhil Ramamurthy, landed in Singapore on Thursday. Davin Arul of the The Star Online pointed us to the page that chronicles the Heroes’ heroic arrival in Singapore. The site also includes some excellent pictures of the cast greeting fans and press in Singapore (see below).
If you’ve been reading this site, you know that one-thirds of the Heroes cast are currently in Asia swinging around different countries to promote Heroes as part of the Heroes World Tour. Ali Larter, Masi Oka, Greg Grunberg, and Sendhill Ramamurthy were most recently in Japan and then Hong Kong, and that’s where these pictures and video of their press conference comes from.
While the quartet of Ventimiglia, Panettiere, Coleman, and Pasdar were busy invading Paris, France, the quartet of Masi Oka, Ali Larter, Greg Grunberg, and Sendhil Ramamurthy landed in Hong Kong, where they greeted fans and talked to the press. Pictures of the gang doing a lot of press work and some sight seeing via the NBC Heroes site can be found below. My favorite part? The, um, Claire Cheerleaders for, well, obvious reasons. Ahem.
