Six More Cast Members Added to "Heroes"!

Six More Cast Members Added to "Heroes"!

On top of the news earlier this week that Claire will be getting a new boyfriend, Hollywood Reporter has revealed six more cast members for the next season of "Heroes," and I have to say, one of them is baffling to me. Take a look at who's climbed aboard the superpowered train:

David Anders
Anders, who you may remember as the unforgivably evil Julian Sark from "Alias," has the most, uh, interesting role of the lot: He'll be playing "the ancient samurai warrior Takezo Kensei, Hiro Nakamura's (Masi Oka) childhood hero." Fans will recall that Hiro has spent quite a lot of time retrieving and then learning how to use Kensei's sword. However (and here's that bafflement), I could be mistaken, but I had always assumed that Kensei was, I don't know... Japanese? Aside from that, I may fall into the problem I have with Ron Rifkin, another former "Alias" villain who is now playing kindly Uncle Saul on "Brothers & Sisters." I keep expecting sweet old Saul to fool Sally Field into giving him the intel and then bomb the Walker household.

To see the other new additions,

Barry Shabaka Henley
Having played Detective Drummer on "Close to Home," Henley is well prepared for his role as Detective Fuller, a member of the New York Police Department.

Eriko Tamura
Currently a pop star in Japan, Tamura will play a Japanese princess on "Heroes."

Holt McCallany
This guy gets to play Ricky, the ringleader of a group of Irish thugs. He'll probably turn out to have some crazy Irish-style superpower... Any guesses?

Lyndsy Fonseca (left) and Dianna Agron (right)

These two will play cheerleaders at the Southern California high school that Claire is now attending. Fonesca will play April, a "good girl," while Argon's character Debbie is "a mean girl." Argon looks somewhat similar to our original beloved cheerleader, doesn't she?

I loved David Anders as Sark on Alias...he was my favorite character! Dont understand how he will be an ancient Samurai warrior though.

Love David Anders. Hopefully Heroes next season will streamline (or just plain cut out) some lagging storylines (namely, Niki/Jess).

I love David Anders!!!! Maybe he's supposed to be like Tom Cruise in The Last Samurai or something. I don't know, I never saw the movie.

Yay! It's like Heroes is filling the void left in my little Irish heart when The Black Donnellys got cancelled! I'm confused about the blonde-haired blue-eyed guy playing the ancient Samurai warrior, though... unless maybe he's a shapeshifter or something?

I'm not sure how the blond hair/blue eyed guy is going to play a japanese warrior?! I'm interested with the irish thugs plot; i'm biased though- i'm irish.
