According to The Hollywood Reporter, Robert Knepper is the latest actor to join the cast of Heroes. This follows the recent appointment of Californication’s Madeline Zima to the superhero series. Both Knepper and Zima will be prevalent features in the upcoming fourth season.
Knepper has previously enjoyed terrorising the inmates of Prison Break as Theodore ‘T-Bag’ Bagwell and has also featured in blockbusters such as Hitman, Transporter 3 and The Day The Earth Stood Still. In a not so surprising move he will play the role of a villainous chap named Samuel. ‘Charismatic’, ‘evil’ and ‘twisted’ are words that have been attributed to this character and it has been stated that he will play an important part in many of the heroes’ lives.
Heroes season four is currently entering production and is pencilled in for an autumn transmission date.
