Horn-Rimmed Glasses is back!! Jack Coleman has become the 1st Heroes co-star to sign up for Heroes Reborn, NBC’s upcoming 13-episode miniseries that reboots the popular 2006 superhero
drama series. Heroes Reborn, from Heroes creator Tim Kring, will duplicate the basic elements of the show’s 1st season in which ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities, although the producers are keeping details on the plot under wraps. We were able tp learn that Coleman will reprise his character as Noah Bennett aka HRG, or the Man in the Horn-Rimmed Glasses, a nickname given to him by fans before the character’s real name was revealed. Bennet, a former agent with the Company and father to cheerleader Claire Bennett (Hayden Panettiere), began on the show as a recurring character but quickly became a fan favorite, with Coleman promoted to regular midway through Season 1.
During the NBC upfront in May, NBC Chairman Bob Greenblatt indicated that “some of the familiar faces from the show are bound to drop in” on Heroes Reborn. We’ve heard that a handful of the original stars have been approached thus far, with Zachary Quinto aka Sylar and Milo Ventimiglia aka Peter, said to not be available for now.
