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.
Tessa in Kansas City, Mo.: Kristin, will Ali Larter definitely be back on Heroes this season? Last we saw her she was in an explosion, if I remember correctly.
Ali is definitely still a part of Heroes. Niki Sanders, not so much, but Ali will stick around and conjure up a whole new personality we haven’t yet seen before for season three: Tracy Strauss. (Something tells me she’ll be hot, blond and look like that chick who once wore a whipped-cream bikini for Dawson Leery.) Meanwhile, I’m pretty sure I’m hitting the set tomorrow to interview a few of the castmembers, so if you have Q’s for the Heroes cast, I know a secret place you can hide them: firstname.lastname@example.org. (I’m not sure who’ll be there, but I know Zach and Milo will be.)
Drew in Montana: Give up some goods on Heroes! What’s next for my favorite, Matt?
He’s going to end up in the desert with a horse with no name…and a tortoise. Believe it or not, I’m serious about the desert and the tortoise part. Matt’s storyline is about to get über-trippy!
So there you go. Ali Larter will be back, but Niki Sanders won’t be. (Where does that leave Jessica? Has she been exorcised completely?) And in Niki’s place, a new personality name Tracy Strauss. She wouldn’t be a well-dressed type “lady”, would she? Or is Tracy more of a street ho?
And oh yeah, Matt and the tortoise. This guy has less to do on the show than the grip.
