Heroes’ Jack Coleman to Appear on The Vampire Diaries


For those of you who loved season one of Heroes but then slowly got driven away by the egregious product placement and the increasingly hard-to-follow plotlines, you should still remember the wonderfully hard-to-read Company man Noah Bennett. Since NBC canceled the show, the cast has been busy job hunting: ever-intense Zachary Quinto headed to Broadway, and Masi Oka, who played time-traveling Hiro Nakamura, has just been promoted to a series regular on Hawaii Five-O. Now Jack Coleman, who played Bennett, has landed a guest spot on Kevin Williamson's CW hit The Vampire Diaries — we can only hope that he reprises some sort of complicit father figure role. In weird parallel news, Ashley Crow, who played the wife to Coleman's Bennett on Heroes, has also been cast in a Williamson CW show: witch series The Secret Circle. [TV Guide]
