Heroes Spoilers: Sylar, Niki to Exit Season Early?

at . Comments

Michael Ausiello of TV Guide recently responded to a pair of reader questions regarding Heroes. In them, he revealed that two major characters may have reduced roles in season two:

Question: Zachary Quinto as Spock? Love it!
Ausiello:
Yeah, I think that's been the general consensus. Even Heroes bossman Tim Kring is thrilled by the nifty piece of casting — although it probably means losing Sylar for a chunk of the season.

"I was actually involved with this happening," he says. "Damon Lindelof and J.J. Abrams and I are friends, and we discussed this many months ago. There were a couple of behind-the-scenes phone calls and conversations and we were able to work it out.

Bad, Bad Hiro

Question: Got any Heroes scoop?
Ausiello:
We'll be seeing less of Ali Larter this fall as Niki takes off early in the season to, as Larter herself teases, "fix something. And once it's fixed, it will be very shocking and exciting."

Mohinder: (voiceover) There are many ways to define our fragile existence; many ways to give it meaning. But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images: fears, loves, regrets… for it’s the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil, success with disappointment… this is what separates us, what makes us human. And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.
