With the highly anticipated 13 episode reboot scheduled to air this fall on NBC Heroes Reborn have added original series star Masi Oka to the line up along side fellow original series cast member Jack Coleman.
Oka will only be making a guest appearance, as a kind of guide to his successor, but it will no doubt be an important one, especially in terms of continuity for the fans. Series creator Tim Kring commented “The character of Hiro Nakamura was such a huge part of the first series’ success, and a gigantic fan favorite. We felt the fans would really love seeing him back in action again.”
New cast members include Zachary Levi, Ryan Guzman, Judith Shekoni and Gatlin Green.
