The Hollywood Reporter has a list of all the new people joining the hit NBC show Heroes this fall. Barry Shabaka Henley, Holt McCallany, David Anders (from Alias), Japanese pop star and actress Eriko Tamura, Lyndsy Fonseca and Dianna Agron will have reoccuring roles throughout the season.

David Anders will play Takez Kensei, Hiro’s childhood hero and samurai warrior, while Tamura will play a Japanese princess. We had previously posted the rumor that Miss Universe was up for the part.


Henley will play Detective Fuller, a New York police officer. McCallany will play Ricky, the ringleader of a group of Irish thugs.

Fonseca and Agron will play beautiful cheerleaders in Southern California, where Claire (Hayden Panettiere) is expected to move. Fonseca’s character April is sweet, while Agron’s Debbie is a mean girl.

Looks like we really are getting X-Men Lite with the addition of new powers and people, although I can’t really picture Anders playing a Japanese Samurai.
