Exclusive: 'Heroes' stages 'Pushing Daisies' reunion!

Swoosiekurtzheroes_lIt’s not exactly a Pushing Daisies resurrection, but I’ll gladly take it (and so should you): Swoosie Kurtz is reuniting with her former Daisies boss, Bryan Fuller, on Heroes!

Kurtz’s spokesperson confirms to me exclusively that the actress has inked a deal to guest star in an April episode of Heroes written by, yep, Fuller himself!

“Bryan wrote the part specifically for her,” says Kurtz’ spokesperson of her character, Millie, an old society friend of Angela Petrelli’s. “It’s a really fun role.”

As of now, Kurtz is signed for one episode, but there’s definite recurring potential — particularly if NBC renews Heroes for a fourth season (as many expect it will).

Heroes‘ Fuller-infused fourth volume, “Fugitives,” kicks off on Feb. 2.

Meanwhile, there’s still no news as to when or where ABC will air Daisies final three episodes — and, in this case, no news is definitely bad news.

Not cool, ABC. Not cool at all.

However, the Kurtz/Fuller reunion on Heroes? Very cool. You with me on both counts? Sound off in the comments!

    In all honesty just because Fuller is involved with Fugitives still doesn’t make me think that this show can be saved:( The last 2 chapters were just way to bad. I have given up on the show. Bryan Fuller deserves so much better, I can’t help but think that he only went back to Heroes because he needed a paycheck.

    If Kurtz is on the show, can she have an eye-patch? In addition, can we bring Greene back too and make them sisters? I hope she gets a reocurring role, if it doesn’t stink of course.

    Dear God, enough about Bryan Fuller already! He’s not even a full-fledged producer on the show right now — he’s a “consultant.” He didn’t come swooping in as some kind of savior. He’s not the show-runner. I think it’s questionable just how much influence he EVER had. Get over your man-crush already.

    Sorry Michael but Heroes sucks, no one really cares anymore.

    I want to say this is very cool, but really, it just makes me sad.

    Um, yeah Bryan pretty much had a major influence as to how the show ran on the first season (which is the best season) and he wrote the best episode of the series – Company Man. So basically he’s exactly what this show needs to redeem itself if it’s not already too late. And yes, he definitely deserves better and he didn’t do it for the paycheck.

    Let me guess, Is Swoosie Kurtz is going to be playing Sylar’s mom? I’ll pass, This show is horrible!

  • Gre

    A big fat “Meh!”
    I stuck around for all of Season 2, but nothing seemed to make up for Season 1’s lackluster finale. Like some glutton for punishment, I watched 4 episodes of Season 3, and I realized that the show was beyond repair.

    Sorry, but I’d rather have the final three Daisies episode air than have Ms. Kurtz show up in one episode of Heroes.

  • jojo

    I’m so sad that Pushing Daisies is getting canceled. There is no way Heroes is a better show than Daisies. TV Sux anymore. (sad)

    PLEASE AIR THE LAST PUSHING DAISES EPISODES!!!!!!!!!!! Michael you have to pull some strings to make this happen!!! Don’t they know how powerful you are!

  • Marty McDoodle

    Heroes certainly can only get better with Fuller and Kurtz.

  • Jenna V.

    what about eli? that has more of a cliffhanger.
    WHYYYY ABC???
    i can’t even detest them though cuz they at least brought scrubs back.
    but still! at least give us closure for these shows instead of repeats and reality shows. >:[

    I wish they would quit trying to act like Bryan Fuller going back to Heroes is supposed to cheer us Pushing Daisies fans up. If anything, it just rubs salt in the wounds. A wonderful creative show destroyed and now he goes to a piece of crap that never was as good as everyone said it was (Better than Lost claims in season 1! Yeah, I knew you’d regret it EW) I hate TV again. It felt fun again starting in 2004. Now exciting stuff is being punished again. Mentalist doing so well doesn’t bode well for those who like taking chances.
