Sylar’s Dad, Heroes in TV Guide, Win a Lunch Date with the Heroes Cast

A couple of Heroes news round-up for your reading pleasure today. First up, Hayden Panettiere is the cover girl for TV Guide’s upcoming 2009 Sci-Fi Preview issue, which also includes a three-page spread on Heroes that may or may not contain spoilers. Meanwhile, in Heroes casting news, Michael Ausiello over at Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that Kirsten Bell won’t be back as Elle anytime soon, so if you’re holding your breath for the electric one’s return, I would stop right now before you pass out. As for the still living, Ausiello also scoops that bad guy turned anti-hero turned really bad guy again Sylar will be meeting his read daddy, now that he’s been assured Arthur Petrelli is not his real father. Or at least, he better hope Arthur isn’t his dad, after what he did to the old man, if you know what I mean.

Says Ausiello:

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the struggling NBC drama has tapped John Glover, a.k.a. Lex Luthor’s dad, Lionel, to play Sylar’s father.

“When Sylar meets his father, he’s going to see a path ahead of him that he doesn’t want to take,” reveals a Heroes insider. “He has a lot more in common with his father than he realized.”

      well, i don’t want a luch date with either of those guys but have the guy from smallville come to the show will be pretty interesting. i wonder if angela P is sylars’ real mother. i remember angela was said to be fooling around with hiros’ dad before. she gets around.

    i think Meredith will bite the dust, which sucks :/ They’ve been hinting at it this season, like in the GN’s where she admitted she couldn’t have raised Claire like Noah did, and that Claire has Sandra’s heart in ep 6. I really like her so I don’t want her to go!

    i think now that sylar’s pops has been determined to be the guy who played lionel luther on smallville, it is safe to assume that Angela will not be killed by sylar in the volume 3 final. in assuming this it is also safe to assume that Angela is in fact his mother or one real lucky woman since she appears to be a part of volume 4

    I think Angela is the mother, that seems like it will make for a good story line…makes sense why she gave him away…this is going to be a good episode, but it sucks we have to wait sooooooo long.

    Sweeet. Lex Luthor’s dad as Sylar’s dad is going to be amazing. I was so depressed when he was killed on Smallville… He was one of those characters that you never really knew which side they were on. Good choice

  • Anne

    I agree with u guys on the idea that lex’s dad would be a good match to play Syler’s dad.I do think meredith will be claire’s parent that gets the ax but my second choice would have to be hrg. If u watch the spoiler clips on the odi u see syler making claire choose between saving noah and angela. There have also been rumors floating around that she kills her dad in the season finale. But my first guess is still meredith
