More Heroes for Second Season
The casting announcements for the second season of Heroes have been flowing of late, with the cast set to start shooting next week.
The biggest name to join is David Anders, best known as the chaerming villain, Sark, on Alias. He will play, surprisingly, Takezo Kensei, Hiro Nakamura’s childhood idol. As viewers recall, Hiro now possesses Kensei’s sword.
Nick D’Agosto has been cast as Clarie’s boyfriend and will also have undisclosed super-powers. D’Agosto has been largely seen in television guest roles from House to ER. She is expected to return to her cheerleading habit when she winds up in California. She will be dealing with Lyndsy Fonseca (Big Love) and Dianna Agron (Veronica Mars) as fellow cheerleaders, one bitchy, one sweet.
Eriko Tamura, a pop star and actress in Japan, will be playing a Japanese princess. She has ten albums and has become quite the idol.
Barry Shabaka Henley (The Horseman) will be a New York police detective named Fuller with Holt McCallany (Vantage Point) as leader of an Irish street gang.
