When Sylar comes face to face with his long-lost father, the reunion proves to be what he least expected, as the epic American drama continues. Elsewhere, after receiving a tip from Rebel, Claire must decide if she will help her sworn enemy, Eric Doyle, evade capture.
Heroes casting director Natalie Hart has revealed that the first person to be cast in the hit US sci-fi show was Masi Oka, who plays Hiro.
In an interview with the official Heroes magazine Natalie admitted that they started the search for Hiro first as it was such a specific role. She said:
“Masi might have been the first one because we knew it was a little bit limited. By limited I mean we needed someone who could be endearing, a good actor, and needed to fluently speak Japanese. It’s not like you have a large talent pool, like when you are looking for a handsome 30-year-old there are a ton of those guys in LA. When you have something as specific as Hiro, you are going to show producers 15 to 20 people, tops.”

Nathan Petrelli’s best laid plans often go awry but, this time, they face exposure, as Homeland Security begins an investigation under direct orders from the President of the United States, in this week’s episode of the epic American drama series.
There was a lot of speculation that it was on its last legs and the situation wasn’t helped by Greg Grunberg announcing on Twitter that it may not be back, but thankfully, hit US Sci-fi series Heroes will get a fourth season.
Last week Greg (who plays Matt Parkman on the show) tweeted “‘Tough to say goodbye to crew not knowing if any or all of us will return next year”, he tried to retract his comments three minutes later but the damage had been done and thousands of fans hit the net mourning the loss of Heroes.
As Nathan continues to hunt down all those with abilities, Matt paints a series of prophetic images that reveal the tragic fate of someone close to him. Sylar encounters an outcast while searching for his father and discovers the stranger has information and an ability of his own.

US sci-fi series Heroes is to return to its roots for its next season, according to its creator.
“This volume starts us pretty much from scratch,” Tim Kring told TV Guide. “There is almost nothing that the audience needs to know from the previous volume in order to follow the storyline.”
The fourth series is due to launch in the US on February 2 and in it the ‘Heroes’ are all trying to lead normal lives until Claire Bennett discovers that Nathan Petrelli is planning to capture and imprison all those with powers.
In the aftermath of the showdown against Arthur, the Petrelli brothers find themselves battling each other – and Nathan makes a move that will have global repercussions. Meanwhile, a face-off ensues when Sylar holds Claire, Noah, Meredith and Angela hostage at Primatech. Ando, Matt and Daphne continue their efforts to rescue Hiro – and Suresh may be their only hope.
Bryan Fuller has confirmed that he will be returning to write for hit US TV show, Heroes but has lamented the direction previous writers have taken with the villains of the show.
After Fuller’s most recent show, Pushing Daisies was cancelled he was offered the chance to write for Heroes once more and this week Fuller told Entertainment Weekly that the show recently “became too dense and fell into certain sci-fi trappings. For instance, in the ‘Villains’ arc, when you talk about formulas and catalysts, it takes the face off the drama.”
