Here are some new promo shots of Heroes!!! Nothing too revealing except Hiro looking at a samurai costume. (He seeks a “sacred object,” which is the samurai sword.) Claude, an invisible man played by British actor Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who), appears in this episode as well. Heroes creator Tim Kring explains: “He’s been living with his invisibility for many years and has come to grips with it, so he’ll give us a different view into this hero world. He’s big, imposing and charismatic, and will become a mentor to Peter — albeit a tough, reluctant and stern one. He’ll help Peter learn to use and control his powers.” This all-new Heroes episode (“Godsend”) airs Monday, Jan. 22 @ 9PM ET/PT on NBC.
Cast pictured below: Adrian Pasdar as Nathan Petrelli, Milo Ventimiglia as Peter Petrelli, Leonard Roberts as D.L. Hawkins, Noah Gray-Cabey as Micah Sanders, Ali Larter as Niki Sanders, Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura, Sendhil Ramamurthy as Mohinder Suresh, Greg Grunberg as Matt Parkman, Tawny Cypress as Simone Deveraux, Santiago Cabrera as Isaac Mendez, Hayden Panettiere as Claire Bennet, and James Kyson as Ando Masahashi.
And don’t forget to watch Masi Oka (Hiro) on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno later today! He’ll probably be showing off a preview of this Heroes episode.
