If you happen to live in, or were stopping by Tokyo today, August 27th, then you may have heard that the cast of Heroes (specifically Sendhil Ramamurthy, Ali Larter, Masi Oka and Greg Grunberg) were in your town as part of the globe-hopping Heroes World Tour to promote the show ahead of its second season. Oka revealed during the stop that he and producer/creator Tim Kring would be doing the entire Asian leg, with stops in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore.
Leonard Roberts, aka D.L. Hawkins, may not be in Season 2 of Heroes (if everything we’ve heard is correct), but that doesn’t mean he’ll be jobless, either. Leonard has already landed and will be appearing in the production of E.M. Lewis’ Heads, to be presented by the Blank Theatre Company August 14-September 23, with an official opening August 18. Find more info about it here.
TV Guide’s resident TV critic Michael Ausiello has given his report on his recent trip to the Heroes set with other journalists. (I guess my invitation got lost in the mail again…) Among the more notable things that he relates is that actress Lyndsy Fonseca, who was scheduled to play Claire’s gay cheerleader pal on the show, has left Heroes for a regular stint on ABC’s Desperate Housewives. More from Ausiello below:
Greg Grunberg, aka mindreading cop Matt Parkman, recently went on the radio show Lovelines and spilled some secrets (via Media Village) about the upcoming second season of Heroes, potential storylines, and what is very good news about the Heroes DVD: according to Grunberg, the first season of Heroes will be out on DVD just a few weeks after the last episode airs. Of course this is different than the August 28th 2007 release date I posted here. As in, over three months sooner than we were told. Does Greg have the inside track? One assumes so. But wait, what about the Season 1 finale and those Season 2 storylines?

The guys over at MovieWeb had a chance to sit along in a conference call/interview with “Heroes” star Greg Grunberg and Masi Oka, along with show creator Tim Kring.
You can read the full interview here and learn about Masi Oka’s Midas touch. Sort of.
In an interview with Sci Fi Wire, “Heroes” creator/producer Tim Kring revealed that Season 1 will have a season-long arc involving a superpowered serial killer that our heroes must hunt down! Says Kring:
“We are bringing in other people with super powers, and they are not necessarily heroes. The show does introduce the concept of a major villain in the second episode, and that villain becomes a sort of a linchpin, a central character for most of the first season.”
Thanks to forum member “dumptruckstop”, who spotted an E! Channel interview with “Heroes” star Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli) talking about his exit from “Gilmore Girls” and his upcoming “Heroes”, as well as his character, whose power is flight. You can catch the video over at YouTube by clicking here. (Toward the end of the interview, Greg Grunberg (Matt Parkman) barges in for some laughs!)
