...not that there's anything wrong with that.

8:03 PM 9/22/08 · The funny thing about Heroes is the actors. I'm watching the opening bit right now and Masi Oka (that's Hiro's real name, right?) is doing the intro. Funny thing about him, and a lot of them, is that I didn't see much of them before this.

I think.

Y'know Star Trek: Voyager? The guy that played Chakotay...I didn't recognize him when the series started but the more I watched I flashed on inconsequential roles I had seen him in years earlier. One thing on Skinimax, which is quite funny seeing as he lost a bet and had to sleep with another guy, and a Chuck Norris film even further back than that...

...and thinking about that I look to Heroes and try to do the same.

For the most part it's the guy that plays Peter. Pretty sure I first saw him on Gilmore Girls and I've got sketchy memories of other things. I know he was in the last Rocky film too but I never saw that. Kinda like as it is with all of them...though there's a few I've never seen in anything else.


It would probably be easier if I wasn't going just by memory...but where's the fun in that? Sure, I could pop online and get their whole acting histories if I wanted to. That's too easy and that's what I'd like you not to do answering the following questions:

  • Who on Heroes have you seen in other things?

  • Did you remember the moment you first saw them or did it take a bit into the series before it clicked?

  • Try to keep your answers to things you saw before Heroes aired.

I knew Greg Grunberg from Alias, and apparently BF knew Adrian Pasdar from Profit. Well, and Christopher Eccleston and George Takei, but we're not counting guest stars, are we?

That's about it. I'd heard that Milo Ventimiglia was in Gilmore Girls, but I've never actually seen him in it.

I caught an rerun of Scrubs, a few weeks after Heroes started, that had Masi Oka in it. And I later randomly caught a movie featuring a very young Hayden Panettiere. I think I must have seen her in other things, too, because she did look a little familiar. Can't remember what, though.

I keep watching Scrubs reruns in the hope of Franklyn showing up again. He never does. :-(

He's in very few episodes. I have the seasons on DVD and i think the last episode I saw him in, JD accidently made a racist comment and Franklin was standing right there looking horrified. It's funny cause he looks so damn young and innocent in comparison to Hiro.

Did you ever watch Days of Our LIves? Or maybe it was One Life to Live... Either way, Hayden was one of the little girls on that soap opera. That's where I first saw her.
