Sometimes in school, the smarter you are, the harder is to fit in. Matt Neuenberg has aways felt like an outsider because of his unique gift of memory. Luckily for him, The Company is always in search of those who don’t exactly fit in.

Samantha in Eugene, Oregon: Any scoop on Heroes? Is Niki coming back?

If you threatened to electrocute me with your lightning powers, I’d say…no. But I’d also tell you that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of Ali Larter. I’m hearing that the plan as of the last time the writers met up (prestrike) was for Niki to be dead—but for an alter ego to take over. Not Jessica, not the whipped-cream chick from Varsity Blues, and that leaves…come on, you can guess it! It’s someone we’ve seen before. Of course, all that is subject to change due to the current holding pattern.

Jamie Hector

Jamie Hector has recently sat down with 2 magazines to talk about his new role on Heroes, now we haven’t seen him on Heroes yet but he is in the special Volume 3 preview that aired at the Jules Verne Festival.

These days you’re working on Heroes. That must be very different from working on The Wire…

My character’s name on Heroes is Benjamin Knox Washington. I can’t really disclose much about him, but I can tell you it’s a lot of fun. So many special effects — and it all winds up looking so real. The set is different — it’s warmer outside, obviously — and in Baltimore, since most of us are not from Baltimore, we all hang out and go to dinner after shooting. We’re like a family.

How has the writer’s strike affected your career?

Well, actually I shot a couple episodes of “Heroes” that unfortunately have not been seen yet as a result of the strike. Also, I think the writer’s strike’s impact on the award shows will definitely affect some great films. Great movies that aren’t necessarily going to bring in huge audiences at the theaters really rely on things like the Golden Globes to help get the word out. The Great Debaters for example is such a great film and an incredible story that deserves to be acknowledged.

Tell me more about your role on “Heroes.”

My character’s name is Benjamin “Knox” Washington. I can’t say too much about it though.

Pasdar Says Volume 3 Will Be Interesting… by Damien

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.”

We May See Origins… by Damien

The ODI sent some awesome info over to Spoiler TV about Volume 3 and Origins…

So before I start with the information about Volume 3, we got a confirmation today that one of the 3 (yes 3)…alternate endings had Nathan dying via the virus. This was rumored as the possible Vol. 2 finale, but was changed at the last moment. However, we were unable to get a confirmation about the other two endings because they still might be used somehow.

Now for Volume 3. I have some interesting news….which could be considered great, but not so great because it all depends on the strike…!?

So a very good source for Heroes just confirmed to me that almost 5 episodes of Heroes Vol. 3 have been filmed and that about 8 episodes were written. This is very interesting news because I have not heard them talk about this any where and I am kind of curious why they would not want to air what they might have.

Well apparently it is all up to NBC who is waiting to see what happens with the strike.

Our source also confirmed that the volume that was called Exodus might actually occur after all and they called it Volume 2.5. For those of you that have no idea what Exodus is, well apparently Volume 3 was initially called Exodus, but was scrapped when the ratings were being hurt and then the writer’s strike occurred.

Plus, there seems to be that there is still a possibility that Origins could happen!! The highly anticipated spin-off was indefinitely canceled after the strike began, but there is a back door chance that Origins will still happen.

So depending on how soon this strike can get cleared up there might be an opportunity for us to get some new episodes….!!

Now like I said this is great info, but unless we get some sort of news from the strike I do NOT see NBC airing any episodes unless it seems like there is a natural cliffhanger with the current lot of available scripts and episodes.

So I wish I hand someting more, but for now this is all we have.
