Here’s a Jack Coleman TCA interview where he talks about Heroes Reborn and Castle:
HEROES REBORN: Jack Coleman give the scoop on Season 1 – exclusive interview
AX: How is it getting back together with the members of the team who are returning?
COLEMAN: It’s amazing. It’s awesome to be in Toronto, and all of a sudden, there’s Sendhil and there’s Grunny and there’s Masi and there’s Cris Rose and Jimmy Jean-Louis. To have these guys back on board is fantastic.
AX: Are you having a sense of déjà vu?
COLEMAN: It’s somewhere in between déjà vu and vuja de. Occasionally, it feels like I’m on the old show. Most of the time it does not, because it is not the old show. It’s very much a new thing, new cast, new stories, but from time to time, there are things that happen, especially when some of the original cast comes back that you have those moments.
AX: You’re back on CASTLE for the beginning of their eighth season. How do you enjoy your work there?
COLEMAN: Oh, I’ve had a really good time on CASTLE. I love working with Stana [Katic], I love working with Nathan [Fillion], Jon [Huertas] and Seamus [Dever], they’re all just fantastic and they’re so welcoming.
Q: Who would have thought a pair of glasses would be so valuable to your character?
JC: You know, after “The Upfronts’s” Charlie Robinson came up to me and said, “I didn’t realize until today that your entire show was about your glasses?”
Q: Did you keep them after the show finished?
JC: I did keep a pair. And it was a good thing because I have to wear them in the Super Bowl promo because production didn’t have them. Well they couldn’t find them; they’ve since come up with a whole new batch, some of which are actually prescription, which is great because I am blind. So I did keep a pair and I wore them in the Super Bowl promo. When they called asking, “Do you have a pair…”
They were just happy to hear me say yes.
Q: Can you talk about putting them back on for the first time?
JC: I haven’t put them on since the show ended and they just sat on the shelf in my living room, so putting them back on for the first time was for that promo. It really felt like dress up, like Halloween, it was like, “Oh this is weird.” In the promo I didn’t know exactly what was happening, and you can see it definitely ties into the show, but I didn’t know exactly how yet. It was definitely a “try them on and see how they fit” thing. Even the first time when we started shooting it, took like an hour before I felt I was back in my skin again.
Q: Will we find out how the other members of the Bennett family react to Claire’s death?
JC: I’m not sure, probably not right away. It could come to that. I will tell you that Claire figures very prominently throughout the show. Whatever form she takes, she is not forgotten – ever.
