Hayden Hates Being Nice… by Damien

Hayden Panettiere

While we all see Claire on the show and wonder how nice and family motivated she is in real life she is growing tired of the fact being nice.

“People look at me as sweet,” Hayden Panettiere said yesterday. But “I would never describe myself like that.

“I think I’ve always been categorized, and sometimes typecast, because I’m blonde, and people look at me as either the popular cheerleader type or just the blonde, and you don’t play villains when you’re blonde, unless you’re Sharon Stone.”

“I wish I could turn bad,” she says of her character, who matured last season from a selfish teenager into a noble do-gooder.

“I’d turn bad in a second; I’d be the villain. I could be bad. It would be a blast,” she says.

Panettiere says she is grateful for all the attention fans give the show, even the ones who have become obsessed with it. She admits they might want to “get a life.”

“It’s crossed my mind,” she says. “But it’s very cool that they like it, because it’s a pat on our backs. Aside from awards shows, we’re always behind the camera . . . so it doesn’t always click that 15 million people are watching. It’s cool to hear from them.”

Another Boldly Going Forward?… by Damien

IESB recently sat down with James Kyson Lee and asked him about maybe having a role in Star Trek…

The IESB was able to speak with James Kyson Lee who plays Ando on NBC’s Heroes and Star Trek XI was the hot topic!

Zachary Quinto is Spock, Anton Yelchin has been cast as Pavel Chekov, so who will round up the rest of the cast? Will the rest of the OG crew such as Sulu, Scotty, etc make appearances as well?

A couple of weeks ago during Comic Con, the IESB spent a few minutes talking to a few of the guys from Heroes including Milo Ventimiglia, Zachary Quinto – the recently announced Spock and James Kyson Lee – Ando. And Star Trek was very much the conversation!

As we spoke with James, he said he would love to play the role of Hikaru Sulu that was made legendary by actor George Takei. At first I thought that he was kidding a bit, but by the end of the interview, it appears that he was quite serious about trying to reach out the Abrams camp.

Could he pull it off? Certainly. Would it be too much to have two Heroes stars playing two roles in the new Star Trek movie? Probably, but it still fun to see actors being so excited about Star Trek. Besides, a good actor is a good actor and it’s all about who you know in this business.

You know Greg Grunberg (my favorite Hero) is going to have a part in there somewhere. He’ll probably be the Ensign without a last name…and we all know what that means! Hopefully he will supply some plucky comic relief along the way.
