The Hollywood Reporter has word of six exciting new additions to the Heroes cast lineup for next season, which–Yaysian!–include a Japanese princess and a 1000-year old Samurai:
NBC’s sci-fi drama “Heroes” is casting a wide net for next season, hiring six people, including “Alias” veteran David Anders, for recurring roles.
Anders will play the most intriguing part, that of the ancient samurai warrior Takezo Kensei, Hiro Nakamura’s (Masi Oka) childhood hero. Hiro spent most of the first season trying to get a hold of Kensei’s sword, which he hoped would help him in his quest to save the world.
Anders, who played Julian Sark on ABC’s “Alias,” recently did a multiepisode arc on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.”
In another Japanese connection, pop star and actress Eriko Tamura will play a Japanese princess. Tamura has starred in more than 15 Japanese features and TV series and has released 10 albums there. She made her English-language debut in the 2006 feature “Surf School.”
Ah yes, of course!!! How appropriate for Kensei to be a blonde, blue-eyed Aryan. Oh wait, this is annoying.
DUDE, HEROES. Why… why… WHY do you continue to make a bid for the Disgrasian Hall of Fame? With each new week, a new offense. So guess what?? You got it. Welcome to the Canon.
