Filming of "Heroes: Season 2" Has Begun with 8 New Cast Members!
On Monday I erroneously stated that the shooting of the second season of "Heroes" will begin in a couple of weeks. It is now clear the production on NBC's hit drama has already begun and here are the first candid images from the set taken on Tuesday. You can see the new cast member Nick D'Agosto, along with stars Hayden Panettiere and Jack Coleman.
Meanwhile it was reported that "Alias" vet David Anders who played the evil Julian Sark on the ABC drama has joined "Heroes" in the most intriguing of new roles.
He will play ancient samurai warrior Takezo Kensei, Hiro Nakamura's (Masi Oka) childhood hero.
While never seen during "Heroes' " first season, Kensei played a key part in the show's plot.
Hiro spent most of the season trying to get ahold of Kensei's sword, which he hoped would help him in his quest to save the world.
Anders recently guest starred on the much publicized "Private Practice" episode of "Grey's Anatomy."
Japanese pop star and actress Eriko Tamura is also joining the drama as a Japanese princess.
As many as four more actors will join the drama - Barry Shabaka Henley, Holt McCallany, Lyndsy Fonseca and Dianna Agron.
Henley will play Detective Fuller, a New York police officer. McCallany will play Ricky, the ringleader of a group of Irish thugs.
Fonseca and Agron will play beautiful cheerleaders in Southern California, where Claire (Hayden Panettiere) is expected to move.
Fonseca's character April is sweet, while Agron's Debbie is a mean girl.
These six actors join the first two previously announced new cast members - Dania Ramirez (hot young female hero) and Nick d'Agosto (Claire's boyfriend).
