Next Week Sylar goes home and then I searched a bit out and found some info on the woman who is gonna play Sylars mum…thanks to Playbill News

Ellen Greene, the celebrated singing actress best known for her work on stage and on screen in Little Shop of Horrors, will make a guest appearance on the new NBC show “Heroes.”

Greene will appear on the May 7 episode of the acclaimed show, which airs in the metropolitan area on WNBC Channel 4 from 9-10 PM ET; check local listings. Greene will portray the mother of Sylar, the character played by actor Zachary Quinto.

The upcoming episode is titled “The Hard Part” and is described by as such: “Hiro and Ando are even more determined to save the world after seeing the grim future; Nathan takes steps to win the election. Thompson (Eric Roberts) brings someone new into the organization; and Sylar visit his mom (Ellen Greene).”

“Heroes,” created by writer Tim Kring, is “an epic drama that chronicles the lives of ordinary people who discover they possess extraordinary abilities.” The hour-long program stars Santiago Cabrera, Masi Oka, Tawny Cypress, Hayden Panettiere, Noah Gray-Cabey, Adrian Pasdar, Greg Grunberg, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Ali Larter and Milo Ventimiglia.

Ellen Greene began her career as a nightclub singer, performing in the now closed New York cabaret Reno Sweeney. At age 21, Joseph Papp took her under his wing and cast her in productions of Boom Boom Room and The Threepenny Opera. Greene earned a Tony nomination for her work in the latter, but it was her role as Audrey in both the original stage and film productions of Little Shop of Horrors that brought her national attention. Among her recent theatrical credits are the West Coast staging of Side Man and an all-star reading of Women Behind Bars. Her many screen credits include “The Cooler,” “One Fine Day,” “Léon,” “Fathers & Sons,” “Stepping Out,” “Pump Up the Volume,” “Talk Radio” and “Next Stop, Greenwich Village.” Her solo recording is titled “In His Eyes.”

Well….this is quite the interesting spoiler from Kristin

The bomb might not be such a bad thing. This was supposed to be the episode where we see how awful things get and why our Heroes must save the world in the season finale, but honestly, this version of the future was so grippingly entertaining (hot and scarry Peter, hot and scary Niki, hot and hairy Matt), I can’t help but root for Sylar and the bomb. Does that make me a bad person? You bet. But chances are, some of you also agree!

If the bomb goes off, there will be many casualties. Ando and Micah, for starters. (Didn’t NBC get the memo? You can’t kill kids on television!) And ultimately Nathan, Candace, the Haitian and Claire also will go. Plus, you know, those millions of people (.07% of the population) in New York City. Okay, so maybe I don’t want that bomb to go off…Curses.

Matt’s child has special abilities. As he put it to HRG, “We both are harboring children of interest in the president’s eyes.” And now we know that there is most definitely a genetic link for all the Heroes that is passed down from parent to child.

Future Peter kicks ass! Please tell me that someday, the Heroes producers and Milo Ventimiglia will do a big-screen version of Big, Bad Peter. If those scenes were that freakishly good on an NBC budget, imagine how good it’d be on the big screen? I smell blockbuster! But in the meantime, now that we know what he can do, he’s certainly gonna give Sylar a run for his money.

What lies ahead…

We get Sylar’s backstory. Much like the Benry flashback episode of Lost that is coming up, I’m told by insiders that this trip down memory lane for Sylar just might be the best episode yet of the series. Not surprising, since Zachary Quinto is da bomb–when it comes to onscreen charisma! (It is Peter who is actually The Bomb.) We also get to meet Sylar’s mommy.

(Highlight for Spoiler)

Spoiler Alert: Don’t read if you don’t want to know. I’m also told that the bomb will go off in the season finale but how and when it happens will prevent the loss of a mass of innocent life. Anybody get the connection yet of why Nathan was running toward Peter in the scene of the bomb’s explosion.?

Beaming Beemans 5 Years… by Damien

After a new episode of Heroes brings a new Beaming Beeman blog and today he talks about what he says is the best episode of Heroes to date which I can agree with last night was probably the best hour of telly ever!!!…anyway heres an excerpt from it…

A couple of other points of interest. We had to find an oval office set for Nathan’s scenes as president in the future. The set we used was the one built for WEST WING. I always assumed we’d just go to Warner Brother’s studios for the day, but it turned out that the set had been dissembled. So we had to drive it over and rebuild it. A complicated endeavor.

Also, I think Ruth Ammon and the art department did a beautiful job with the ground zero set, particularly the eternal flame portion of it. The VFX crew at Stargate deserve a nod as well because they did great set extensions. But the best part was that because we built the set in the parking lot outside our offices – it provided a surprise opportunity for Tim Kring, Allan Arkush, Jeph Loeb, Tim Sale (the famous comic-book artist who creates all of Isaac’s work) and I to all be together. We are almost never in the same place at the same time!

Nathan Gonna Die?… by Damien

The Latest Watch with Kristin is very interesting indeed….

Phil in Toronto: Heroes! I need more info on Heroes!
Tonight is the alternate-universe episode, in which we see how everything could go horribly wrong if our team doesn’t save the world in time. Greg Grunberg tells me the ep (in which we learn he’s the Homeland Security Director of the future!) is “really scary” and we see his son has powers of his own. Clearly, there is a big ol’ genetic link between the Heroes and their parents. I can’t wait for the retro ep telling us how all the parents got their powers, which is surely coming.

Anna: What do you know about the second-season storyline for the Petrelli brothers (Nathan and Peter)? I really like both of them, and I hope they’ll stay around.
Nathan’s fate and future is in question come season’s end. I asked Rena Sofer (Heidi Petrelli) if she’d be back, and she nodded in the direction of her onscreen hubby and said, “If he’s back, I’ll be back.” And when I asked Adrian Pasdar himself if we might get a glimpse of Nathan’s two sons by Heidi in season two, he told me, “Um, what can I tell you? There’s a little bit of perhaps a separation between my ability to see them and, uh…I can’t really say too much.” (Uh, if you know what this means, you may be a Hero yourself.)

Jana in Phoenix: Give us a good spoiler on Heroes! None of this watered-down stuff!
Okay, here’s a straight-up shot that you might need to chase with a lemon: Linderman is going to heal Nathan’s wife (Rena Sofer in a wheelchair)! See, he can do good.
