Greg Beeman posted a blog about the new episode “4 months ago” and here is an excerpt…

One of the fun things that we do on HEROES, is that we frequently open an episode at the exact minute, or perhaps a minute before the end of the previous episode. In episode 7 Peter re-appeared in the present having abandoned Caitlin there. He screamed “Caitlin” and fell to his knees and we went to commercial. Later, after the commercial break and several scenes, we ended the show on Peter shooting a bolt of energy at Adam. Well, in this one, I had the idea of combining both of those two, previously separated moments, into one. After the “previously on heroes” segment, we come up on a shot of Peter, seen from above. Using a techno-crane, which is a crane with a telescoping arm – a device that can, effectively, both crane and dolly from a fixed platform, I moved through all of the previously seen moments in one unbroken shot. I wanted to do a long take to start the episode, because I thought it would give the viewers a sense of things happening in real time – which is an important theme of the episode.

Greg Chats to Buddy… by Damien

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.

Greg Chats With LAist… by Damien

Greg Grunberg recently sat down with the website the LAist and chatted to them about Heroes and the cast and behind the scenes and what it was like to go on a world tour.

The plots for “Heroes” episodes are extremely detailed and complicated. Remind us what was happening with your character Matt Parkman at the end of last season.

First of all the show is nowhere near as complicated as other shows I have been on. I have to say. When I was shooting “Alias”, people would ask me, especially my parents. My dad would ask ‘so what exactly is happening?”.

I would say, ‘Dad I have no idea’. I just get the scripts and I say the words. I can’t tell you who these terrorists are and what we are going after and what exactly is happening. “Heroes” is at least easy to follow. You can easily pick it up season two. You’ll know everything that is going on with in five minutes. Last year Matt Parkman was trying to find out exactly what was happening to all of these people and especially to himself. He used this little girl that he rescued in the first episode to track down and find people that are in charge of this. Season two goes back to the origins and the original group that was affected. We are sort of another group that’s coming together. Some of the character’s families were involved in the original group. They were trying to change the world. Way back.

Also Greg Revealed that Adrian Pasdar has a Youtube Handle so check that for some awesome behind the scenes stuff.

Thanks to Watching Heroes and LAist!

Greg Grunberg Does Weight Watchers… by Damien

Thanks to the person who emailed me this interesting article from Weight Watchers

gregg_zt4q4091_n_lg.jpgWeight Watchers: What was the moment you decided, “That’s it I’ve got to lose weight.”

Greg Grunberg: It was right when I was shooting the pilot for Heroes. I knew I had to do it. I was eating my way through the anxiety of whether the show was going to be picked up. I had just done a pilot for NBC that didn’t get picked up; our house was under construction. When I saw what I looked like in the pilot of Heroes, I just decided…

I’m not someone who weighs myself. So what’s great is that when I go to the [Weight Watchers] meetings, Lori [the meetings leader] weighs me and I don’t have to look at [the scale]. And she’ll say, “All riiiight!” if it’s great, and if it’s not, she just goes, “You’re doing great. Don’t worry about it.”

WW: Why did you choose Weight Watchers?

GG: Because my wife Elizabeth had success a long time ago with Weight Watchers. I love Lori, so I make it a point to go to [her] meeting. It’s not close; it takes me a good 40 minutes. But it’s worth it to me.

I know those people now. And when I see this guy Jeff—he just went on a cruise; I went to the Kentucky Derby—I can not wait to get back and go: “Did you do what you said you were going to do?” He gave me a great tip a couple weeks ago.
