Looks as if the Heroes reboot Heroes Reborn has bagged itself one of the original series’ main cast as Masi Oka reprises his role as Hiro Nakamura. Oka will be joining former cast member Jack Coleman in the reboot series as a guest star, with his former Hiro character being one of the standout hits from the original series.
With this being a pretty big deal for the reboot team, Oka seems pretty pleased to be back also; “I’m excited to return to my Heroes roots, Hiro Nakamura was such an inspirational role to play, and I’m hoping the fans will enjoy seeing him back on TV”. Show creator Tim Kring has spoken out about the importance of having original cast members come back for the show; “The character of Hiro Nakamura was such a huge part of the first series’ success, and a gigantic fan favorite. We felt the fans would really love seeing him back in action again”.
Oka and Coleman will join new heroes/villains played by the likes of Zachary Levi, Ryan Guzman, Danika Yarosh, Robbie Kay and Judith Sherkoni, wit the premiere hitting NBC in the autumn.
