Adrian Pasdar spoke to Buddy TV about Volume 3…

NBC’s Heroes took a beating from both critics and fans for its second season. Now that it’s over, many are waiting to see just how the next chapter will turn out, including show star Adrian Pasdar.

“Season 3 is going to be very interesting to see what happens and how they’re able to take the lessons that we’ve learned, and really tell the story that they want to tell without losing an audience,” Pasdar, who plays Nathan Petrelli on Heroes, told Entertainment Weekly. “Because the goal at the end of the day is to have as many people watch the show as you can.”

Reconciling what writers and fans want has proven to be challenging, especially since Heroes is “complex” and has “many layers.”

“It’s not stupid TV, it’s not a reality program,” Adrian Pasdar said. “It actually is complex. There’s many layers to Heroes. [Creator Tim Kring is] not averse to risk-taking, as he has proven in the episodes of season 2.”

The future of the show is not the only thing that’s hanging in the balance. In the second season finale, Pasdar’s Nathan was shot during a press conference, leaving viewers to wonder if he’ll be back in the next season or not.

Fans of Adrian Pasdar need not worry, however, as the 42-year-old actor has several other projects to fall back on. Currently, the musical he co-directed and cowritten is showing at Los Angeles’ Geffen Playhouse. The production is called Atlanta, and revolves around a soldier who dons his enemy’s uniform to survive battle.

“It’s something I’ve always wanted to do and I’ve never really had the opportunity,” he said of his latest stage work. “Who would come to me to direct musical theater unless I wrote it?”

Additionally, Adrian Pasdar and his wife, Dixie Chicks’ Natalie Maines, are developing an animated series for Nick, Jr.

“It’s the story of a pig and an English bulldog who become friends. It’s based on a true story that we had at our ranch in Texas,” Pasdar explained to Entertainment Weekly. “We inherited a pig when we bought the ranch, and we had a bulldog that we owned, and putting the two together was like oil and water. But they became friends, and we decided to make a children’s show about the Amazing Adventures of Stella and Ralph.”

Jack Sits with Buddy… by Damien

Jack Coleman recently sat down with Buddy TV to talk about Heroes, his Character and the Strike!…

And is there any knowledge of, “If the strike lasts until this long, you’ll come back in the spring” or are you off until the summer?

It’s very hard to tell. Here’s my best guess based on all those rumors and innuendo that I’ve been able to collect from all the different sources, my guess is if the strike gets solved to the point where we can go back to work in January and there’s almost no scenario that has us going back sooner than that, then I think we’ll finish up the season if not 24 [episodes], then a significant portion of the season. If by January it’s not over, it’s not solved, there’s not hope of getting back into production, then the whole thing will very likely push until June or something. As I said, this is complete speculation. I’m not really anymore in the know on this than anyone else. It’s very confusing, it’s very uncertain and we’re hoping it gets resolved soon. It’s not fun for anybody.

Definitely. And a lot of the fans watching have their own questions about: “What’s going on with this character?” or “I wonder what this means in the mythology of the show.” And are there any questions that you have that the writers haven’t answered that you’re just dying to know: “What does this mean. What’s going on with this?”

Well you know it’s such an interesting time right now because earlier in the season I did, I had a lot of questions as to what was happening. A lot of those questions have been answered. And I can’t, without being too spoilerific, I can’t really reveal them now. But I will say that most of my questions have been answered and I think what you’re going to see before long is people coming together and having to work together to save the world, to save themselves. I think you’re going to see more of the characters working in concert, and that includes the bad guys.

Greg Grunberg recently sat down with BuddyTV to chat about the Writers Strike and about the show…

First off, I just want to ask, the writers’ strike is fresh in everyone’s minds. I’m wondering, how is that affecting Heroes and the production?

Well, it’s interesting, we got a really early jump on the season, the writers did at least, we were way ahead which is a really good thing for awhile. But as you know in TV, as soon as the episodes start airing, it quickly catches up to you. We had a couple extra scripts but now we’re pretty much caught up and I hope this thing gets resolved very quickly because we all want to get back to work. We’re still shooting, but we have another couple weeks and then we go down because the writers don’t have any finished. You know, they have, basically a break-down and some outlines of the next few scripts, but nothing complete enough for us to keep shooting. It’s frustrating because we’ve been

With your character this season, I was at least interested in because your character exhibits the same powers as his father, and that’s not always the case with some of the heroes and parents and their children, and I’m wondering if that’s an issue that gets addressed later in the season?

It does, and you know, you don’t really know if my father is running scared, I mean, he mentions it. First of all, let’s give a HUGE shout out to Alan Blumenfeld who played my father on Felicity, he was so incredible on that show, and then I know personally how deep and scary he can be in other things he’s done, so I went to Tim Kring and I said, “You HAVE to read Alan Blumenfeld,” and he knew his work of course, Alan’s been on a million things, but when they brought him in, it was like: boom, done. So, I’m so happy to be working with him, and I think it’s really interesting that a guy like my character, there’s so many secrets, he doesn’t know what the hell is going on.

Nichelle Nichols Talks About Heroes… by Damien

Nichelle Nichols

Nichelle Nichols recently sat down to chat about her role on Heroes…

On the new season of Heroes, Micah (Noah Gray-Cabey) was rushed off to New Orleans to live with relatives, Nana Dawson (Nichelle Nichols) and Monica Dawson (Dana Davis). These two actresses spoke to reporters this morning about their Heroes experience.They spoke about how they got their roles, who St. Joan might be, and what Nichelle Nichols thinks about the upcoming new Star Trek film.

Nichelle Nichols’ involvement came when she was on a short trip back to Los Angeles and her manager told her she had to take this audition. She initially thought it was just for a one-episode guest shot, but was delighted that it was a recurring role after reading the script and getting a good understanding for the character. She tried her best to deflect questions about the possibility of her character having powers, and was also unclear on how many more episodes she’ll be in. Nichols said that her role keeps expanding, but would not confirm or deny

Dana Davis also tried to dance around questions about what’s in store for Monica and what other heroes she might interact with, but she did let us know that Monica will be involved in plenty of fights moving forward, possibly with other heroes. One reporter question whether Monica will actually don a costume and run around fighting crime as St. Joan, the copycat character in the 9th Wonders comic book seen in the last episode. Davis couldn’t answer, but she did say that it was a good guess.

In regards to the new Star Trek film, Nichols has a lot of respect for J.J. Abrams and is confident that the new film will maintain the wonder of Gene Roddenberry’s original while taking the franchise into a new direction. She’s also talked briefly with Heroes co-star Zachary Quinto, who will play Spock. While she was unsure about the casting based upon pictures she saw, when she talked to him and met him in person, she was certain he was the right man for the role. Nichols promised that if or when she gets to do a cameo in the new Star Trek film, she’ll be screaming it from the rooftops, because she would more than love to do that.

Thanks to Ralph from Buddy TV for sending me this article they conducted with Shalim Ortiz who plays Mayas brother on Heroes about his Role and his future…

Haha. Finally, after the first three episodes really, a lot of people on the internet … there was a little bit of a backlash against your characters, Maya and Alejandro. People just, for some reason, not gelling with those characters and I’m just wondering if you read or heard any of that negative feedback and how you would respond to that?

Well, it’s funny because I think as much as I’ve heard negative feedback I’ve heard positive feedback on our storyline. People are also really loving where it’s all going. It’s completely understandable that there is a fan base for the show that already loves these characters that were on season one. And for anybody that gets to do these new people, it takes a little while for you to start getting what the true essence of our story is and what message we want to give away. But I think that little by little people are really starting … these characters are really starting to grow into people. I also love the fact that it’s something that didn’t happen overnight. You have to earn something for people to really like your character, it doesn’t just take one or two episodes. I don’t think anybody has fallen in love with any of the new characters in just one day. It’s taken various episodes for you to see what a character can go through. In our case, we go through so much stuff and I think we’ve given away the message that we don’t mean to harm people, it’s more like things are happening that are out of our control and I think the audience is starting to realize that. And from now on, I think they’re going to be looking at us with different eyes.

News coming out today well more a rumour then news is that Cockroaches are Sylars best friend…but is the more to the cockroaches then meets the eye…

On the rumor side of things, David Anders of Alias fame is all but confirmed to play the part of next season’s central villain Kane. Kane is apparently over a thousand years old and has a lust for power that is a little more elegant than Sylar. If you believe the word on the streets, the little cockroaches that we see whenever Sylar is in trouble, well they’ve been a little more helpful than we would have ever imagined.

Can’t wait for Season 2 already!!!
