First original Heroes actor signs up for Heroes Reborn
Jack Coleman, who played Noah Bennet in Heroes, has officially joined Heroes Reborn...
Expect to hear more such announcements over the coming months: the first of the original Heroes cast has officially joined Heroes Reborn.
The first to jump aboard is actor Jack Coleman, who played adoptive father of cheerleader Clare, Noah Bennet. Coleman's character also went by the nickname HRG, or the slightly more mouthful-y Man In The Horn-Rimmed Glasses. An employee of the sinister Company, Bennet's character jumped the line and back from villain to sort-of-good-guy over the course of Heroes' seasons.
Coleman's casting in the new show, due to air in 2015, raises one question for fans. Earlier this year Hayden Panettiere told Cosmopolitan she had "nothing to do" with Heroes Reborn, though she hoped her role wouldn't be recast. If (adoptive) Daddy Bennet is coming back, wouldn't it follow that Claire is also due a return?
