Ali Larter And Zachary Quinto Talk HEROES: REBORN

Actress Ali Larter gives an unequivocal no to returning as Niki Sanders on NBC's Heroes: Reborn, while Zachary Quinto sounds as if he needs to give the idea a little more thought. Would you want to see more Sylar in the new series?

Actress Ali Later, who played Niki Sanders on Heroes, a woman with multiple personalities that each displayed different super powers has given her thoughts about returning to the role for Heroes: Reborn. In short, it's not likely to happen. Said Larter to TV Guide, "No, At this point, I think I've heard that Jack [Coleman] is coming back, but I'm committed to [TNT's] Legends. I'm on series, so I don't have the time to work on another project. Not that I didn't love Heroes and loved working on it, but I'm just at a different stage of my life. I'm super excited and proud to be a part of this show and working with Sean Bean and an incredible cast."

Elsewhere, Zachary Quinto was also asked about returning to the world of Heroes as the character that made him famous, Sylar. The Star Trek Into Darkness actor told IGN, "I've been in touch with Tim [Kring, creator] and he told me they were doing this and we left the door open for me to be involved, the trouble is really my availability." He then expressed a few more doubts, particularly about revisiting a role from years past when he's trying to push his career forward.  "I don't know that it would really even be possible. And it's a challenge for me because that experience and role and opportunity really changed my life completely and sent me on a path that I might not have otherwise have been on, but at the same time I'm very interested in forward momentum, I'm very interested in expanding and defying people's expectations of me....no one's actually given me an offer. We'll see. I'm glad they're doing it and I know that whether or not I'm involved that the fans will enjoy it."


Heroes: Reborn is described as a soft reboot of the original 2009 NBC superhero drams which chronicled everyday, normal people discovering they possessed uncanny abilities.  A 13-episode miniseries is expect to air in 2015.  Thus far, the only original Heroes cast member confirmed to return is Jack Coleman as Noah Bennett aka HRG

Aww that's a shame, Ali Larter was really the best part about the show for me.
She was just awesome as all of her different characters. I would've loved to have seen her back as Barbara (the third triplet) I felt that was a storyline left wide open.

Sylar was better in small doses, Season 1, then after that his character got too much for me.

Sylar ruined the show, along with a lot of other things. I don't want this series to be eclipsed by Sylar. Heroes became the Sylar Show after a while. He should have died at the end of Season 1 like he was apparently supposed to.

I am rarely one to say this but, I have no interest. The first season was great, the concept was great but over time the just [frick]ed it up more and more. Really don't know if they'll be able to recapture that magic.

The show did launch several careers though (however briefly) if they can find some stars-in-waiting and a good script then maybe
StrangerX - 7/13/2014, 5:42 AM
The first and last season were great. The show should be a reboot
Shroombeast - 7/13/2014, 6:26 AM
They should retcon seasons 2, 3 and 4. That would be wonderful.
batmanvsuperman - 7/13/2014, 7:05 AM
She should play Ms marvel or Alice eve should play they both would be great and sexy and great acting wat else do u need
ratticus58 - 7/13/2014, 7:41 AM
Ali Larter would make a great movie universe Black Canary or any female superhero for that matter. She's gorgeous, has the acting chops (see the great biopic Crazy)and can kick ass in action roles. It amazes me that Larter, Milla Jovovich and Kate Beckinsale have never been cast in an X-Men film. Their individual contributions in the Underworld, Ultraviolet and Resident Evil films came off as more super-heroic (costumes were better as well) than most portrayals of super heroines on screen these days.

Personally, I would have liked to have seen Olivia Munn (yes, she can act) as Wonder Woman but lets see what happens with Gal Gadot.

I can't remember which was last, the end of Heroes or the end of LOST. But LOST taught me no tv show is worth spending that much time on. WHen Heroes ended, I just quit watching TV, pretty much. Except How I Met Your Mother.

@batmanvsuperman

Ali Larter for Ms Marvel and Alice for Moonstone!

@Asaka

Oh hell no. Sylar is probably more liked by fans than Peter.
GUNSMITH - 7/13/2014, 9:44 AM
IF YOU REALLY JUST PUT OUT THERE..WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER THE MOST FROM THE SERIES? WHAT DID YOU TRULY LIKE AN WHAT MADE YOU COME BACK? FOR ME I REMEMBER PETER AND HIM GETTING POWER AFTER POWER, HIRO AND HIS TIME TRAVELING, THE FIRST COUPLE SEASONS AND SYLAR AND HAYDEN PANTY-TEAR...THATS PRETTY MUCH IT. THOSE ONLINE COMICS WERE COOL
NoAssemblyReqd - 7/13/2014, 10:04 AM
HEROES is a shining example of a show that would probably have fared better creatively as a 6 or 10 episode per season cable series.

For me, things really went off the rails when the writers got lost in their convoluted time travel plotting.
HBarnill - 7/13/2014, 10:54 AM
If Kristen Bell doesn't come back, I riot.
batmanvsuperman - 7/13/2014, 11:07 AM
@cherrybomb nice one

@ratticus58 agree Kate beckinsale and Milla should have been in a cbm

Really? Sylar easily became the favorite after they neutered Peter's powers.
Sylar didnt ruin the show, the writer's strike did.
wbrowning79 - 7/13/2014, 11:57 AM
He hast to return. He's so damn good, the way he moves and speaks its so damn good he is of course a really talented guy, I hope he comes back, it's like a rdj or Hugh jackman situation, if another actor came on the screen it might be fine and good but can't even touch the original character, now if they get a new guy to play sylar and he's smart I think he will know not to exactly what quinto does because he knows it's perfect. Hell know Just to incoporate new things while possibly adding little things from the original here and there, and that's my point,
Even if there is someone new and how well they may or may not do it the point is, it wont do as much justice.

Amongst many [frick]ups beyond about the middle of season two (arguably towards the end of season one even), relying too much on Sylar was one of them.

I stuck with the whole thing through to the bitter end, but mostly because I liked the actors and I'm a superhero fx addict. The show was really and truly terrible by the end. Soooooo much shark-jumping, no coherence or direction whatsoever.

Which is such a shame, because the first few episodes were superlative and really showed what a modern superhero tv show concept could be.

Speaking of which, I liked Alphas a lot, and it's a shame Syfy canned that show. That had the opposite problem, a poor start, but it built momentum, but by then it had no audience.
FearTheLiving - 7/13/2014, 3:56 PM
Ali Larter for Ms Marvel.
JillyMcBeam - 7/13/2014, 3:58 PM
Sylar or bust.
Timerider84 - 7/13/2014, 4:06 PM
Should make it an alternate universe. Bring everyone back for one episode, due to their schedules and other commitments. Then reboot it with new people and events. Something like that would be cool to see. Perhaps somebody changed something that created a whole new timeline of events.
manofmidgard - 7/13/2014, 10:35 PM
bad and often-changing writers made this show far less than it should have been. they had an amazing cast and great characters. I loved most of em. my especial favorites were hiro, sylar (as a bad guy), all of ali's characters/personalities, and noah. can't think of any actors on there that I didn't like. if they make this, they MUST get good writers and not keep changing directions for the show every season.
manofmidgard - 7/13/2014, 10:46 PM
and oh yeah, ali larter would make a great ms. marvel. her acting in all those personalities in heroes makes me think she'd do very well with ms. marvel, who is a pretty complex character. she'd also do well as spider woman (who is avenger/shield/hydra all at the same time) if she'd be willing to go brunette. heck, she'd even make a good black cat.


yvonne strahovski (from chuck), alice eve, or katee sackhoff would also make me very very happy as ms. marvel. and charlise theron for enchantress.
manofmidgard - 7/13/2014, 10:54 PM
also I'm guessing quinto isn't gonna to pass up star trek 3 money for heroes reboot, despite the fact that he said he didn't wanna be in the 2nd trek movie. he likes to play hard to get- prolly so they throw more ca$h at him. can't blame him I guess. and he really is awesome as both sylar and spock.
alexlunar - 7/14/2014, 3:53 AM
If sylar isnt in it, I wont be tuning in. End of story.
plasticman - 7/14/2014, 8:30 AM
Here's a thought on this if Quinto doesn't become of the cast. If this is a reboot I would love to see a new similar type of character. What about someone like Brandon Routh playing a version of Sylar or a similar character?
