Heroes News Roundup: James Kyson Lee at the NBA All-Stars Game, the Adrian Pasdar/Irish Snafu, Ali Larter Eye Candy

A couple of “catching up with” news items involving the Heroes gang, including James Kyson Lee’s adventures in New Orleans over the weekend, Adrian Pasdar’s big mouth starts a mini-war with the Irish, and some Ali Larter eye candy to finish up the weekend. First up: If you’re an NBA fan, you might have caught James Kyson Lee (Ando himself) at NBA All-Stars Game, participating in the celebrity game.

James is the really sweaty Asian guy next to Alyssa Milano, in case you were wondering.

Says Adrian (via):

“The irony is we had American guys playing the Irish guys in those episodes because the Irish actors who auditioned for the roles didn’t sound Irish enough.

So the portrayal of the guys from Cork, I have to admit, was very interesting. So I don’t know how much of it worked and how much of it didn’t”.

This is a non-story to most Heroes fans, since we generally considered the entire “Peter lost in Ireland” segment to be idiotic, Irish accents notwithstanding. Unless, of course, you’re Irish, in which case you’re pissed because you apparently expect TV to resemble, er, reality for some reason.

So did Heroes “snub” Irish actors? You decide.

Ali Larter in a magazine is no big deal. She’s on a new magazine pretty much every week, but this one is especially eye candy worthy. Check out Ali Later on the cover of Shape Magazine.

Excerpts from the article (via):

“Working out has always been a part of my life,” says Ali, who grew up playing sports like softball and soccer. “Now that I’m in my 30s, it’s become even more important for me to take care of myself.” A dedicated runner, Ali takes advantage of the near-perfect Los Angeles weather with 25-minute morning jogs three or four times a week through the Hollywood Hills. “This is nonnegotiable,” she says of her two- to three-mile run. “I don’t think about it, I just do it. I never, ever miss my workout. Never!” ?

So, uh, guys, you still don’t want to see Niki/Jessica back for Season 3?

    The main reason they are pissed is that those accents are that they do not really represent the way the Irish speak but the producers wanted to make a sort of steroetypical sounding people.

    I’m Irish, a huge fan of heroes, bordering on obsessive LOL and not pissed at Adrian for bringing to light what the producers chose to do. Those accents are terrible, the reality being they obviously believe Irish accents to be those like in Far & Away. The accents were terrible and even spoken about on Irish radio stations. We don’t sound like that at all if the producers ever maybe visited the country they might actually figure that out for themselves.

    I’m also Irish and it irritates me that whenever a show “visits” Ireland the writers seem to get lazy and they fall back to the same tired cliches. The accents are terrible and the Irish people don’t sound Irish enough is frankly ludicrous. They don’t sound Irish enough for who? The audience? Unless actors are going toora-loora-loora or a faith-and-begorra then nobody will “get” that they’re in Ireland. If that’s the case they don’t seem to have a lot of faith in their audiences intelligence.

    I can’t wait until they visit Paris, all those beret and striped shirt wearing, onion-sellers cycling about will be a hoot. “‘Oo are yuu? O la la! Zoot alors!” Yep, it’ll be great, the Lederhosen fest in Germany will be fantastic too.

    Heroes has finally taken away Tom Cruises crown for “Worst Crime Against Irish Accents” for Far and Away. I’m just not sure who exactly should get it… they all deserve it, they’re all so terrible.

    “So I don’t know how much of it worked and how much of it didn’t”.

    Let me try to help you there, from an Irish perspective; about 0% of it worked, about 100% didn’t.
