Heroes is getting its very own geek squad.
Real-life BFFs and frequent collaborators Seth Green and Breckin Meyer are nearing a deal to join the cast of Heroes for multi-episode arcs, sources confirm to me exclusively.
As I first teased in this week’s episode of Ausiello TV, the Robot Chicken duo will play Atlanta-based comic book
nerds aficionados who cross paths with (and perhaps serve as advisors to) one of the Heroes. I’m told the names of their characters are still in flux, so there’s a chance the cheeky monikers I referenced in ATV won’t stick. Then again, they very well may. (Fingers crossed that at least one of them does.)
Got any theories as to what higher purpose Green and Meyer may serve in the Heroesverse? Is it just me, or do these two bring to mind a certain nerdy advisory panel from another popular sci-fi franchise? C’mon, it can’t just be me.
