Heroes Reborn: Zachary Levi on his ‘tortured’ new character

6 July 2015 12:40 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Speaking to Collider, Zachary Levi has revealed a few facts about his ‘grittier and dirtier’ new character for Heroes Reborn

As you probably already know, Chuck star Zachary Levi has signed up for a role in NBC’s franchise-revisiting event series Heroes Reborn. Zachary Quinto decided not to return, leading many to believe that NBC may operate a one-in-one-out policy for actors named Zachary. Ahem.

Levi has been discussing his role in an interview with Collider, noting that he met Heroes creator Tim Kring ‘a couple of times’ before deciding to join his series.

“[I] told him my desires for the trajectory and wanting to play a very different character from Chuck,” said Levi. “He totally understood that, and then came back to me and pitched me the role of Luke Collins. I was like, ‘Yeah, man, I’m in! Sign me up!’”

“He’s a tortured guy,” said Levi of his character Luke. »

Five years after Heroes was canceled, NBC has decided to revive the series with Heroes Reborn, an upcoming 13-episode miniseries that takes place after the original left off.

ABC Family Orders Amanda Knox-Style Murder Mystery Drama Pilot

25 June 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC Family has greenlit a pilot for “Guilt,” a one-hour drama series about an American abroad in London who becomes the prime suspect in the murder of her roommate.

Described as an “edgy, soapy thriller,” “Guilt” revolves around the investigation that unfolds after the savage murder. Viewers will question whether she’s a naive, young girl whose poor decisions are being magnified under the ruthless British tabloids or a sociopath who actually killed her friend. Even her own sister who comes to London to defend her will question how well she really knows her little sibling as more and more ugly truths come to the surface. The mystery will twist through all layers of London society — from a posh, but depraved, sex club all the way up to the royal family.

“‘Guilt’ is a sophisticated, sexy and suspenseful crime epic that will have audiences captivated week-to-week,” said Karey Burke, exec »

Watch: New ‘Heroes Reborn’ Trailer Teases Return of Original Cast Members

25 June 2015 10:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“It doesn’t matter how ordinary you think you are. We all have the potential to be heroes.”

So says the new teaser for “Heroes Reborn,” which — as promised — shows seemingly ordinary people doing extraordinary things (underscored by an eerie children’s choir rendition of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters,” no less).

While the first teaser for the series was vague on details, the latest clip hints at some plot and casting details.

A reboot of the fan-favorite series “Heroes,” which ran from 2006 to 2010, “Heroes Reborn” follows the heroes who have gone into hiding after they are blamed for a terrorist attack in Texas. The series stars Zachary Levi and Judith Shekoni along with Masi Oka, who played Hiro Nakamura on the original series. Creator Tim Kring returns as well.

Heroes Reborn” hits NBC on September 24.

Heroes Reborn Teaser Trailer Asks “Where Are All the Heroes?”

23 June 2015 6:49 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Uh oh. Looks like Heroes Reborn may be taking itself a little too seriously. NBC has released a new teaser trailer for their upcoming limited revival series, and it's laying hard on the idea that our society needs heroes. Which isn't wrong, but I'm pretty sure the heroes we need are better at diplomatic peacekeeping than moving objects with their mind. If you've been paying attention to our recent Heroes Reborn coverage, you might have noticed that I'm rooting for this show and genuinely hope it will be good, but the promotional material we've seen so far is not stoking my enthusiasm. That said, we still haven't seen any footage from the show itself, and I really like the look of the first stills so I'm reserving judgement for the time being. However, if this teaser is meant to set the tone for the series, ripping a page out of »

A New Phenomenon Begins in Heroes Reborn Poster; Official Premiere Date Announced

22 June 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

NBC has released a new key art poster for their upcoming revival series Heroes Reborn, and it is not instilling a ton of confidence. Once upon a time I really loved Heroes. The show was a pretty unique entity in its time, offering a serialized shared-world superhero story before the comic book adaptation craze took over the entire entertainment landscape. Unfortunately, while the first season was thrilling and engaging, bolstered by compelling characters and a pretty gruesome villain, the series collapsed on itself the more it delved into the characters' connections and wavering motives. The new Heroes Reborn poster, perhaps somewhat audaciously, promises "A new phenomenon begins." It's my genuine hope that NBC's limited series can capture that some of Heroes best season one world-building mystery elements, while adapting to the current expectations of Televised programming - which is to say, we are now used to really fucking good, high quality serialized storytelling. »
