Heroes to Actually Be Revived by MSN?!?

With the television world chock full of spinoffs - from The Originals to Ravenswood - MSN and Xbox are reportedly considering a very unexpected series revival: Sources tell TV Line that the companies may resurrect Heroes as part of their original programming plans. Yes, the same Heroes that died a slow and very painful death on NBC many years ago, finally going off the air in February 2010. Talks are in the very early stages and any resurrection would involve new characters and new stories, with former cast members - such as Jack Coleman and Masi Oka - stopping by for cameos if their schedules permitted. What do you think, TV Fanatics? Would you want to see a new version of Heroes? //

Robert Knepper to Play T-Bag Again in 'Breakout Kings'

I'm going to make no apologies for my deep and abiding love of Prison Break. Even if, as my cousin rightly asked, "Exactly how many freaking prisons can they actually break out of?"  Well, Nick, the answer is two, okay?  And I don't see you breaking out of any prisons, so be quiet. Robert Knepper, who played child molester/murderer/all-around-bad-guy Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell in the FOX series will be reprising his role in 2011.  Yes, you read that right.  Prison Break creators Matt Olmstead and Nick Santora had inked a deal with A&E to develop a new prison show called Breakout Kings.  They, like the rest of us, loved Knepper's portrayal so much they've decided to bring him on to their new show (doesn't it seem wrong how much this horrible character was liked?).

'Heroes' TV Movie Not Happening

Fans holding their collective breath for some sort of TV movie to tie up 'Heroes' should exhale before they turn blue and pass out. According to Entertainment Weekly, NBC is not moving forward with the hyped plans for a prologue of sorts. In May, NBC announced the cancellation of the four-year series that once was a ratings giant, but quickly slipped from attracting about 14 million viewers for its season 1 and 2 premieres to just over 4 million for its season 4 finale. Shortly after cancellation, rumors quickly circulated about a movie that would give viewers some closure to the sprawling mythology of the superhero series. Series creator Tim Kring divulged details to TV Guide. "There will be a huge cultural and social change in the world," Kring told TV Guide. "Some [of our characters] will be hiding, some struggling, some basking in the glory." Further plot points of the TV movie/mini-series would have seen Claire become a spokesperson for the super-powered, something she wouldn't be very happy about it. Sylar (Zachary Quinto) would battle his desire to do evil and Adrian Pasdar was going to return, but not as Nathan. Apparently, all the actors were ready to get the ball rolling. "I've spoken with everyone," Kring said in June. "They're all eager to participate." Could Kring follow the Joss Whedon/'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' model and do a new season in comic form? Maybe. "We told stories in volumes that had a beginning, a middle, and an end," Kring told EW. "Those volumes could go on and on and on with many different characters. As a result, that 'Heroes' universe is something that can be tapped into again in many ways." Source Here

Heroes' Jack Coleman Cast as Mentalist Baddie

Following news that Masi Oka has been cast as Hawaii Five-0's new coroner comes word that another Heroes alum, Jack Coleman (a.k.a Mr. Noah Bennet, a.k.a. Horned Rimmed Glasses), has landed a role on another CBS crime drama. In The Mentalist's Oct. 14th episode, Jack will be playing Max Armstrong, described to me as a wealthy, regal, arrogant, self-important man who becomes the prime suspect in a murder. Sounds like a lot like Sylar (minus that wealthy part). Watch for this Max character to attract Patrick Jane's curiosity because of his calm, cold and collected demeanor. Turns out Mentalist co-star Owain Yeoman is a big Jack Coleman fan, but not from Jack's role on Heroes. "I'll always remember him as Steven Carrington on Dynasty," Owain tells me. Source Here

Heroes' Masi Oka to Play Hawaii Five-0 Coroner

After squinting his eyes and time-hopping around the globe to save the world as Heroes' Hiro Nakamura, Masi Oka has signed on to help Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) and his team investigate murders on CBS's Hawaii Five-0 reboot. He'll debut in the fourth episode as the coroner and be billed as a guest star. But with the body count expected to spike considerably in Oahu, this coroner could potentially be busy for several seasons. Also look for original king of comedy D.L. Hughley to appear in Hawaii Five-0's third episode as a character named Skeet. Skeet is described to me as an inmate serving a double life sentence who challenges McGarrett to a game of hoops.
