Masi Oka, Heroes' Hiro and one of the most beloved characters will return for a guest arc on NBC's miniseries-reboot, Heroes Reborn. He joins Jack Coleman who reprises his role as Noah Bennet, father of Claire (Hayden Panettiere, duh) as the lead of the series alongside Zachary Levi from Chuck. No word yet on whether there are any cheerleaders to save. »

The Av Club reports that Masi Oka will reprise his fan-favourite role of Hiro Nakamura for this year's Heroes: Reborn. The time-travelling, teleporting geek Hiro played a key role throughout all four seasons of Heroes' original run from 2006 to 2010, so it's only fitting that he should return for the show's upcoming 13-episode limited-run series revival.
The dynamic between Hiro and his (mostly non-superpowered) best friend Ando Masahashi (James Kyson Lee) was hilarious, lending the show a much-needed humorous side to balance out the gripping arc-based storytelling drama. Not only that, but their friendship also provided some added emotional resonance. So hopefully James Kyson Lee will also return to complete the double act.
Hiro's relationships with some of the other characters also made for some brilliant storylines. For instance, there's his awkward, doomed romance with the adorable waitress Charlene 'Charlie' Andrews (Jayma Mays), continued in the amazing spin-off novel »
“I’m excited to return to my ‘Heroes’ roots,” said Oka, who was nominated for both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his role. “Hiro Nakamura was such an inspirational role to play, and I’m hoping the fans will enjoy seeing him back on TV.”
Jack Coleman also returns to play the suspicious — if well-meaning — Jack Bennett (also known as the man with the horn-rimmed glasses). New cast members include Zachary Levi (“Chuck”), Ryan Guzman (“The Boy Next Door”), Robbie Kay (“Once Upon a Time”), Danika Yarosh (“Shameless”), Judith Shekoni (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”), Kiki Sukezane (“Death Yankee 3”), Henry Zebrowski (“A to Z”) and Gatlin Green (“Criminal Minds”).

When former Chuck star Zachary Levi and actress Missy Peregrym tied the knot last June, they were not prepared for the challenges that marriage would introduce. "Nobody can prepare you for marriage," Levi, 34, told reporters at the A Night at Sardi's event, benefitting the Alzheimer's Association, in Beverly Hills on Wednesday. "Marriage is a whole other animal!" Thus, over the past nine months, the couple have been learning the ins and outs of being married as they go. "With dating you can be 'Hey, it's not working out,' and you're out. But marriage, you make a commitment. The easy outs you don't have anymore. »

Tim Kring also returns to develop the 13-episode miniseries, which will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. »
A Once Upon a Time villain is now being reborn into one of NBC’s Heroes. Robbie Kay, who played Peter Pan during Season 3 of the ABC fairy-tale drama, has joined the cast of Heroes Reborn, NBC’s upcoming limited series reboot of the popular superhero show that ran for four seasons, which aired on the network from 2006 to 2010. Heroes Reborn will be a 13-episode event series for NBC from the show’s original creator, Tim Kring. With Reborn, Kring is looking to recapture the magic of Heroes‘ first season in a self-contained story that follows ordinary people who discover that they have special abilities and how they connect with and learn from each other. Not much is known about Kay’s role in Heroes Reborn as of now; however, it has been revealed that the young actor will be playing a new character in the show, not one from the original Heroes series. »

A review of tonight's "Better Call Saul" coming up just as soon as I picture "The 25th Hour" starring Ned and Maude Flanders... "What are you doing?" -Mike "The right thing." -Jimmy The consensus on last week's episode was that it was easily the strongest hour of "Saul" to date, and a lot of you stated your desire to see the show pivot more into that direction, not only by giving Jonathan Banks more to do as Mike, but by returning to the dark emotional palette of "Breaking Bad" rather than the light comic antics of Jimmy McGill, elder care lawyer. When I spoke with Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould (and editor Curtis Thurber) about the show's ever-changing opening title sequence, we also briefly discussed the response to "Five-o," and Gilligan said that while they like having the ability to experiment — to do an episode where Mike is now the »

Remember that Two and a Half Men finale oh, say, three weeks ago? Apparently Charlie Sheen has been lying in wait all this time, poised to strike - and now he's finally responded. When asked on Monday about Men creator Chuck Lorre's parting shot (via the series finale's end title card), Sheen sent a fairly threatening message to his former boss via TMZ: "You must feel safe, motherf---er. You must feel safe where you live."Sheen's remarks started off mildly enough, with him casually saying, "That's just [Chuck]. I don't care anymore." Then he dropped the boom: "I don't care if he lives or dies. »

Last week's episode of Arrow, "Nanda Parbat", gave us our first look at Brandon Routh suiting up as Atom. Unfortunately, the show is on a brief three-week hiatus until "The Offer" on March 18, so fans will have to wait a bit longer to see Atom in action once again. IGN recently spoke with Brandon Routh, who is no stranger to the DC Comics world after playing the Man of Steel himself in the 2006 movie Superman Returns. When asked to compare the Superman and Atom suits, the actor had this to say.
"This is different from the Arrow and Arsenal suits, and Canary - it's badass. It's a whole different feeling from the Superman suit -- the only other suit that I've been in. It's a whole persona. I mean, so is any suit that you put on, but this one is just different. It's cool."

A comedy with its heart in the right place and everything else bizarrely out of joint, “Unfinished Business” finds director Ken Scott following 2013’s “Delivery Man” with another dubious attempt to sell audiences on Vince Vaughn’s sensitive side. Playing a down-on-his-luck family man who takes an ill-advised business trip to Berlin with two unfunny sidekicks in tow (Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco), Vaughn is admittedly the least of the movie’s worries: Awkwardly wrapping a heartwarming message of self-acceptance in a layer of crude sexual humor, it’s like a date who tries to pat you on the back with one hand while feeling you up with the other. As such, “Unfinished” looks unlikely to do much business, or to end the nearly decade-long string of mediocrities (“Fred Claus,” “Four Christmases,” “The Dilemma,” “The Watch,” “The Internship”) that has plagued its star, whose fans are advised to keep whetting »
