Chuck’ Alum Zachary Levi To Star In ‘Heroes Reborn
Zachary Levi has signed on to star in NBC’s Heroes Reborn, EW has confirmed.
A relaunch of the original superhero drama, which ran from 2006 to 2010, the 13-episode event series will feature a brand new story, though Jack Coleman is slated to reprise his role as Noah Bennett, a.k.a. HRG.
“We’re still keeping Zac’s role under wraps because everything is shrouded in mystery for this miniseries, but we’re very excited he’s been cast,” NBC boss Bob Greenblatt told reporters at the Television Critics Associations winter TV previews, noting that more castings will be announced over the next few weeks.
Added Levi: “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. 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.”
Levi’s casting marks a return for the actor to NBC after starring on Chuck. He’s previously dipped his toe in the superhero waters after co-starring in Thor: The Dark World.
As for other original castmembers returning for the relaunch, Greenblatt said, “Jack’s the way in—and I’m not trying to be coy because we just don’t know—but I think you’ll see several of the old cast popping in to episodes.” Who would you like to see return?

IT was suggested to Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski that she change her name to Yvonne Stryker when she landed in Hollywood eight years ago.
However the strong minded starlet refused, and instead changed the spelling so it was spelt phonetically.
“Look, at the end of the day, it was my call,” she told GQ Magazine.
“So I have the same last time – but now it’s spelt phonetically, so people know how to pronounce it.
The actress cracked Hollywood thanks to her breakout role in TV series Chuck in 2007.
However the blonde beauty has since revealed just how gruelling the process of making a network TV show is.
“I’m forever grateful for that job and I made a name for myself over there with that show, but it was hard because of the hours,” Strahovski told GQ Magazine.
“It would have been nice to have received a warning about how involved it is to shoot a network show … yeah, it’s very involved.”
Since leaving Australia for LA in 2007, the University of Western Sydney graduate has since gone on to star in Broadway’s Golden Boy, film The Guilt Trip; I, Frankenstein, Dexter, Louis and 24 — Live Another Day — a role she hesitated taking on.
“I’ll be honest, there was some trepidation around doing 24 because I was playing another CIA agent,” she said.
“I knew the shows would be different, but both (Chuck’s) Sarah Walker and (24’s) Kate Morgan are similar kick-arse women — so I put a lot of thought into how I’d make them different.”

Zachary Levi Cast As Abe Lincoln ‘Deadbeat’
From Special Agent to… Commander in Chief!
Chuck leading man Zachary Levi will resurrect Abe Lincoln in a Season 2 episode of Hulu’s supernatural comedy Deadbeat, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Levi is set to appear in Episode 9, which finds Pac (Tyler Labine) hastily staging a ‘revival’ of Our American Cousin — AKA the play the late prez was attending when he was assassinated in 1865 — so that a back-from-the-dead Lincoln can see the ending that he missed.
Hulu has yet to announce a return date for Deadbeat, but the series is expected back later this year.
