Zachary Levi joins Heroes Reborn cast

Share

NBC Peacock logoHaving lost interest in Heroes after the first season, the announcement that the show would be returning did very little for me. That changed today when NBC announced that former Chuck star Zachary Levi would be joining the cast. I’ve been eagerly awaiting Levi’s return to television and can’t wait to see what he brings to the undisclosed role. Time will tell if the return of Heroes is warranted but I plan on giving the series another chance.

ZACHARY LEVI ON BOARD FOR HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ‘HEROES REBORN’

Former “Chuck” Star Cast for NBC’s Upcoming Event Miniseries

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — January 16, 2015 — Zachary Levi is making his long-awaited return to television in NBC’s upcoming event miniseries “Heroes Reborn” to play a key yet undisclosed role.

Levi is best known for his popular starring role on the NBC series “Chuck,” which ran for five seasons as well as his role as Fandral in the Marvel franchise “Thor: The Dark World.” Levi also made his Broadway debut in the musical “First Date” for which he received critical acclaim.

“One of my first, and fondest, memories of joining the NBC family in 2007 was having the pleasure of getting to know Tim Kring, and the cast of ‘Heroes.’ I was a fan of their collective work and always thought it was such a fantastic and fun world they got to play in,” said Levi. “With ‘Heroes: Reborn,’ I’m honored to have the opportunity to bring more of that world to life, and excited to help in offering the fans of the franchise an epic new installation of a series that made such a huge impact on entertainment.”

Jack Coleman, who played Noah Bennet in the original “Heroes” series, has previously been cast to reprise his role as “HRG” for “Heroes Reborn”

“Heroes” chronicled the life-changing stories of a series of unrelated ordinary people who discovered they had superhuman abilities. As the saga unfolded, they learned they were part of a grand plan that brought them together to change the world.

With the return of “Heroes Reborn,” NBC will launch a digital series prior to the premiere that will introduce the characters and new storylines. This leveraging of social media is a way for fans to re-engage with what was one for the true pioneers in multiplatform storytelling.

Tim Kring, Peter Elkoff and James Middleton will serve as executive producers. Holly Harold is co-executive producer.

I provide testosterone to the site. You won’t be reading about how nice a actress looks in a dress or how much of a hunk Matt Bomer is in my reviews. I describe colors using words like brown, not taupe. My twitter name is @staffaroadtrip because I love road trips and have done two different 48-state road trips since 2008. My favorite show is White Collar.
