Casting Call: Producers Plan to Expand the ‘Heroes’ Universe with New Characters

Well, we know little about them, but The Hollywood Reporter is telling us that the series will be dealing with some new faces next year. We knew that there would be some shifts in casting with the show, in order to keep things fresh, but these are certainly a cryptic and scattered array of casting selections. Via casting calls, the following are confirmed:

– A Boyfriend for Claire (Sexy, it says)

– A 28-year old Black Mother

– A Surrogate for Niki’s Son

– An Irish Mobster (Black Donnellys cast, hello!)

– A Twentysomething Latina

I worry about this, only because none of these character sounds all that interesting outside of an Irish Mobster. I also worry about the show’s ability to balance these character arcs: Hana, the Wireless girl, came and went so fast (Before showing up in Five Years Gone) that she didn’t even matter in the end. Was that really worth the short time we spent on her? I think the show needs to stick with its own characters, at some point.

Either way, this list remains tentative, and we can only speculate for now how these people might come into play…and what powers they might have.

    How can you find casting or auditions for any of these rolls?

    I wanted to see if you knew how legit this is (what you wrote) beacuse I heard that they were going to do a 6 or 7 part series on new characters that the public can vote on.

  3. Wael, that is indeed taking place. Heroes: Origins will be debuting either in the midst of the season in place of this year’s hiatus, or at the end of the season, and will feature 6 new heroes (One per episode). Fans will vote on their favourite, and they will be written into the season for either the remainder of Season 2 or Season 3.
