    Re the casting news, most peculiar: how can blond-haired blue eyed "Sark" play a Japanese samurai? OK, even if he isn't blond and blue-eyed (I can't remember from Alias, I just recall he was blond, but that could be from a bottle) he isn't Japanese, or at least "oriental".

    Great news! Can't wait to see how that bit of casting develops on the show.

    I figure it's time to start off a season 2 Heroes thread (splitting off the casting tidbits from the season 1 thread), even though we're a month or so away from its premiere episode.

    Just to add more casting news

    Nichelle Nichols (Uhura on Star Trek) is also signed for an arc spanning a handful of episodes.

    That is great news. Glad to see that this person wasn't out of work for too long.

    I hear that next year the Heroes will be sued and hire Denny Crane to represent them. [​IMG]

    And all of the Heroes with telepathic powers will be forced into a government agency, run by a guy played by Walter Keonig.

    Pretty awesome season two promo:



    Kind of feels like the Spider-Man movie poster style brought into motion.

    Consider me drooling. [​IMG]

    Awesome casting news, they've got to give Kristen
    a super power! You cannot hire Veronica Mars and not give her a super power, it's against the rules. [​IMG]

    Holy shit! The mystery person joined the cast and nobody told me!

    You can't see it, but this is my over-the-moon face.


    Not really sure why this is a spoiler, though.

    I personally don't think that casting news is spoiler territory but there are those who do, hence the caution of using spoiler tags. Knowing that someone is in the cast just makes me want to watch it more. Spoiler territory would be knowing plot revealing points about their character.

    That's how I see it. If the name instantly had meaning in relation to the plot, it would be a potential problem. Like, "Michelle Rodriguez is rejoining the cast of Lost!" That would be a big spoiler (and, I just made it up, so stop throwing things). On the other hand, if I said "Laura Vandervoort is joining the cast of Smallville!" that wouldn't be a spoiler at all *unless* I told you who she was playing.

    I'm really late to this party, though, and just learned about the first cast addition from the first post. Cool. Loved to hate this person on the last show this person was frequently on. I can totally see spoilers on this one, because of the character involved. Kind of a shocker.

    I understand about the spoiler issue, but ya know what, i've been here for 9 years now and i'm still not sure when I should use them so when I see others do it, I do it.

    I make no personal judgement calls in regards to spoilers anymore. [​IMG]

    Interesting cast. But I really need to know what happened to the Petrelli brothers.

    Regarding Petrelli brothers:



    Considering they are both in the cast list this year, we have to assume both alive.
