Thomas Dekker

Thomas Dekker recently sat down with SyFy Portal and spoke about Heroes and his upcoming project ” The Sarah Connor Chronicles”…

“The character was never intended to have any kind of importance in the story,” Dekker, who now stars in “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” on Fox, recently told The Baltimore Sun. “But his presence just kept growing and growing. The response of people to Zach and Claire’s chemistry was a definite surprise to everyone involved.”

Dekker’s character did have a very integral part to play in the life of Claire Bennet, at least until the mid-way point of the season when his character mysteriously vanished from the series. In reality, Dekker had the opportunity to take on a role with a very definite future — and a destiny — in “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Since then, fans have wondered if they’ll ever get to see Zach back on “Heroes.” All Dekker would say however is, “You never know.”

Hayden Panettiere

Indianapolis – One of the young stars of the hit television show “Heroes” captured attention in Indianapolis Sunday.

Hayden Panettiere signed hundreds of autographs at Gen Con. She was there to promote Bella Sara, a girls card game.

The 17-year-old actress is best known for playing Claire Bennett, a cheerleader on the breakout NBC show, whose flesh is indestructible.

And Hayden says sometimes fans believe her character’s powers carry over into real life.

“You know, a few. And I ask them to please do not try anything on me because it’s not going to work. But not that many today. I’ve had none today, but there are another two signings. so, we’ll see,” she said.

Pannetiere has a Hoosier connection. Her grandparents live in Winona Lake, near Warsaw.


Milo Becomes Anti-Hero… by Damien

Milo Ventimiglia

MTV recently did an article on Milo’s resurgence to the acting world…

Eleven months ago, Milo Ventimiglia was a struggling actor filling supporting roles on shows like “Gilmore Girls” and starring in blink-and-you-miss-’em duds like “Dirty Deeds.” Then he became a hero.

And now that he’s the flying, regenerating, often-invisible superman Peter Petrelli on NBC’s hit show “Heroes,” Ventimiglia is ready for a triumphant return to the big screen via “Pathology,” a doctoral drama that hits theaters November 30. It will mark the actor’s first starring role since “Heroes” began.

“You’ve got a group of friends who are pathologists, who get a bit of a God complex and start killing people,” said the star, who recently turned 30. “They’re all going for that perfect murder.”

After the “Heroes” phenomenon took television by storm in the fall, Ventimiglia — who also had a small role in last year’s “Rocky Balboa” (see ” ‘Heroes’ Star Sheds ‘Dirty’ Past To Become Rocky Balboa’s Son”) — found himself being approached by Hollywood filmmakers for the first time, rather than the other way around. With several scripts in play, he found himself gravitating toward this dark thriller from the stylistic writing/producing team behind the 2006 Jason Statham action flick “Crank.”

“These are people who are at the top of their field, the top of their game, and now they’re trying to explore something different, something that excites them,” he explained. “Because I gotta tell you, man, when you’re around the deceased 12 hours a day, there’s not much that keeps you going. You find yourself in a dark, transitory world of sex, drugs and murder.”

Taking the “perfect-crime” concept behind classics like Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rope” into the new century, “Pathology” has Ventimiglia heading up a cast that includes Alyssa Milano, Lauren Lee Smith (“The L Word”) and Michael Weston (“Garden State”).

“I play Dr. Jake Gallen,” Weston explained. “He’s the leader of this group of very smart students who … have pushed the limits as far as their world is concerned. They’re looking for the next fix. I’ve corralled the rest of the students into my psychosis, and they’re playing that out for me. I’ve also gotten bored of that, and there’s no real challenge there.”

Enter Ventimiglia, who plays an anti-hero this time around. “When Milo’s character, Ted, comes in, we immediately face off — I’ve found my true adversary,” Weston grinned. “And from that moment, as soon as he walks in, we’re head-to-head for the rest of the movie. That’s where the game really starts to accelerate.”

Veronica Jumps Show… by Damien

Kristin Bell

I am not saying that Veronica Mars is set to appear on Heroes but Kristin Bell has agreed to this after she recently turned down Lost…

NBC is adding former “Veronica Mars” star Kristen Bell to the cast of “Heroes.” The network has hired Bell for a key multiepisode arc of the second season.

Bell will make her first “Heroes” appearance in October. She’ll play Elle, a character described as a sexy, mysterious young lady who has ties to the supposed death of Peter, H.R.G.’s past and the future of Claire. Elle will kick off her arc by committing a serious crime, though it’s unclear whether she’s good or bad.

“This was not easy to pull off,” said “Heroes” creator-executive producer Tim Kring. “But since we’re an ensemble show, with many arcs playing out through the year, we found a way to jump into a small window in (Bell’s) schedule.”

Universal Media Studios prexy Katherine Pope also hinted that landing Bell wasn’t easy, noting that “many studios (were) chasing her in both film and TV” and that she was happy that Bell “chose to star in our show.”
