Jack Coleman Set To Reprise HRG Role In HEROES REBORN
Looking back at Heroes is one of the most frustrating things ever. The NBC series started off with a big and offered up potential in spades. Great story, great actors, cool characters. It had it all. Then it went south. Fast. It’s almost as if they didn’t expect the series to be a hit and when it became popular and they panicked and rushed a story line that got so outlandish and silly that ratings plummeted. Quite possibly one of the biggest television blunders in recent years.
Earlier this year, it was announced that the series’ creator, Tim Kring, would be revisiting the world of Heroes by introducing a 13-episode, limited run series called Heroes Reborn. The sort-of reboot would replicate the basics of the first season of the series, where ordinary folks would come to the realization they weren’t so ordinary. This element is what made the first season so great. Another thing that made the first season so great was the HRG character, who was later revealed as Noah Bennett, played by Jack Coleman. Good news is that Coleman will be reprising the popular character.
While specific story details are still scarce, you can expect Bennett to play the mysterious character of HRG that many enjoyed so much. At least, he’d better be. A few months back at the NBC upfront, it was suggested that several familiar faces were bound to stop in. However, Zachary Quinto, who played the series villain Sylas, and Milo Ventimiglia, who played Peter, the show’s main hero, are not expected as their busy schedules won’t allow it. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the case for Hayden Panettiere as well.Expect the series to run next summer.
