A couple of Heroes-related news for you today, including our first look at Hayden Panettiere on the set of Heroes Season 4. Up first, The Hollywood Reporter says that Matt Parkman is getting a new partner. Former Battlestar Galactica actor Rick Worthy (pictured, left), a longtime vet of sci-fi shows, will have a recurring role on the new season as Matt’s new police partner, which means Matt is once again back on the job.
Says THR about Worthy’s character:
…playing Matt Parkman’s (Greg Grunberg) new partner: an experienced and capable Los Angeles cop and someone that Matt can lean on for advice.
Worthy’s most recent role was as humanoid Cylon Simon in Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica.
