Get ready to grow attached to a handful of new Heroes.

- Asian pop star Eriko Tamura has been cast as a Japanese princess.
- Barry Shabaka Henley will portray Detective Fuller, a New York police officer.
- Holt McCallany is Ricky, the ringleader of a group of Irish thugs.
- Lyndsy Fonseca (Ted's future-daughter on How I Met Your Mother) and Dianna Agron (pictured) are cheerleaders, one sweet, one tart, in a Southern California town to which Claire is expected to move.
