Heroes Season 3 Teaser Promo


You know what, I already forgot how it ended. I'll have to watch Season 2's last episode again.

Anyway, casting news:

- Bruce Boxleitner --- who I last saw as a TV series regular in Scarecrow and Mrs. King in the 80's. No, really. I know he's had other TV appearances after that. But as a regular cast member? That's where I remember him from.
Bruce Boxleitner has snagged a top-secret recurring role that was originally going to be modeled after Sen. John McCain. The character has since been reconceived, and now all I know for sure is that he'll be sharing scenes with a female series regular | SPoilerFix

- Brea Grant --- who I last saw on Friday Night Lights last year
She's not just fast. She's very fast. Meet Daphne, the speedy new character on NBC's Heroes, who plans to give the show's superhumans - especially time traveler Hiro and his sidekick, Ando - a run for their money when she debuts on the popular NBC series' upcoming third season, which went back into production last week. "I'm stealing a secret that's been kept in Hiro's family for a long time that he's just now found," Brea Grant told The Associated Press during a break in filming on location in a high-rise building in downtown Los Angeles. "He stops time right as I grab it, but in that second it took him to grab it, I almost make it out of the office." Grant doesn't know much about her mysterious new character. Daphne's superpower allows her to operate at three speeds and leave a supersonic wake in her path when Hiro stops time. Grant's not sure where Daphne is from, but she does know the Speedster - that's what she calls herself - has been on her own for a long time. "Her character is supposed to be Hiro's Joker," said Masi Oka, who plays Hiro. "Batman has The Joker. Hiro has Daphne. This is the season where Hiro finally finds his arch nemesis, and it happens to be this Speedster. | SpoilerFix

Expect more cast announcements in the months to come. September is still a long wait and the cast list may still get longer.
