Earlier this week 'Heroes' alum Ali Larter alum became the second original cast member to shoot down the possibility of appearing in NBC's 2015 revival 'Heroes Reborn,' but what of the franchise's arguably most enduring character, that of Zachary Quinto's villainous Sylar? Now, the 'Star Trek' star and 'American Horror Story' vet has officially weighed in on potentially joining NBC's 'Heroes Reborn.'
NBC's proposed 'Heroes' reboot 'Heroes Reborn' has been something of a mystery since its original 2014 Olympic announcement, thus far returning only original series star Jack Coleman to the cast. Prior series lead Milo Ventimiglia previously shot down questions of returning to the role of Peter Petrelli, and it now seems original series star Ali Larter has followed suit.
Last week saw NBC's forthcoming 'Heroes' return, 'Heroes Reborn,' dropping its first real bit of intel since the initial announcement, specifically that series veteran Jack Coleman would return for the new iteration. Now we've learned the NBC revival may end up without one of its most important characters, as Milo Ventimiglia claims he may not return to the role of Peter Petrelli.
The moment NBC announced that 'Heroes' would return in 2015 with 'Heroes Reborn,' we had to wonder how much of the original super-powered series would factor into the revival, and how much had simply been dusted off to counter the similarly-reborn '24: Live Another Day.' Now, the NBC superhero drama has confirmed its first bit of casting, returning Jack Coleman to the role of HRG, better known as Claire's father Noah Bennett.
NBC has yet to follow up on its surprise announcement that 'Heroes' would follow in the footsteps of '24: Live Another Day' with 2015 revival series 'Heroes Reborn,' but at last it seems we might have a bit of insight. The network will partner with creator Tim Kring for a prequel web series, 'Heroes Reborn: Digital Series,' easing us back into the 'Heroes' world in time for the proper return in 2015.
