David Anders to Become Series Regular

by at . Comments
 New Series RegularWe already knew David Anders was coming on board Heroes for season two - but news is now that this former Alias star has inked a deal to be a full-time cast member .

Although initial reports suggested Anders was brought in as a full-fledged player, this wasn't the case. He was technically hired as a recurring player, but TV Guide says after seeing him in action as the 1,000-year-old Kensei, producers decided to keep him around for good.

While we're dishing about Heroes casting news, rumor also has it that that Deadwood's Stephen Tobolowsky will appear in at least six episodes this season. Not much is known about his character for now.
