Heroes News: Bryan Fuller Talks "Fugitives," Sylar Gets a Dad



Meet Sylar's daddy!
The latest rumblings about Heroes to come from Michael Ausiello's files have to do with a certain evildoer's father. Sylar's daddy will be played by John Glover, a.k.a. Lex Luthor's dad, Lionel, from Smallville. Ausiello's report includes this quote from an "insider:" "When Sylar meets his father, he's going to see a path ahead of him that he doesn't want to take. He has a lot more in common with his father than he realized."

Meanwhile, Bryan Fuller pipes up about his return to Heroes.
Having parted ways with Pushing Daisies, Bryan Fuller is coming back to work on Heroes. He recently opened up to Entertainment Weekly about this next "volume," "Fugitives," which starts February 2. He acknowledges that the series has gone a bit off-course and says the key to righting everything is to "put a face back on the drama. You have to save something with a face; otherwise you don’t understand what you’re caring about. . . We need to get back into a character place, because that's where this story started: Very clean, superhero metaphors to everyday life."

Frankly, that's. . . awesome.
Fuller's ideas and plans for the future are so comforting to see after the slightly rocky time the show has had recently. He gives a few more hints at what we can expect next year: "It really is a fresh start. All of the characters are back in their real lives. You see Peter as a paramedic. Claire is looking for colleges. We get away from the world of formulas and quasi-magic. . . People will die. And some will return. Matt's wife [Janice] comes back. We'll find out what happens when you have a superbaby. We're also going to tell fewer stories per episode."

Well I say, woo-hoo! Everything's coming up Heroes. Fans of the show, what do you think?
