Don’t miss the special 2-hour premiere of Heroes Reborn tomorrow. HRG is back to TV after a 5 year absence!
More Jack Coleman and the cast interviews from #TIFF, HERE.
Jack Coleman and some of the cast talk with THR about reprising the roles and what to expect from their returns in Reborn:
Where he left off: Watching his daughter Claire leap from a Ferris wheel in order to show the world her powers, despite his insistence she stay hidden.
When he returns: Episode 1. This is very much a story following his experience among new heroes and it is about the new heroes themselves.
On reprising the role: “The really good news is they picked up five years later as opposed to a prequel where I’d have to be five years younger. So that’s one of the comfortable things about it, to be in your skin as you are as opposed to putting on a hair piece and sucking in my gut,” he says. “At first it was a little like, ‘OK wait, what are we doing?’ And then after about an hour or two I’m like. ‘Oh yeah I know this guy.’ It was really fun to get back into it.”
On the impact Claire’s death will have on him: “She casts a very long shadow — everything Noah does is based on her and trying to figure out what happened. He needs to justify how her death makes sense and to make something good of it. Noah will always be tied to her.”
On what’s changed: “The kind of stories you can tell, the effects you can do and the kinds of stunts you can do. All that stuff is next generation. But the show itself is true to ordinary people with extraordinary abilities. But it’s five years later and it’s a very dark and different world for them now. It’s a dangerous place to be an evo. The stakes are higher.”
