Good news, fans, that photo of the older generation of Heroes won't be the last we see of these characters and actors.
"We will be seeing the people... in the photo," Tim Kring said during an October 16 conference call with reporters. "I think all of them will be [played by the actors in the photo]. I just have to tell you, the photo has got a life of its own, because, logistically, it was so difficult to actually come up with this photograph that's used now and refers to things that are shot well in the future here.
It was very difficult to get that all lined up. But, yes, the photo is as accurate as we can make it."
For now, the most important new character in the photo is the father of Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg), who will be tracked down in tonight's new episode.
The photo also featured the by-now familiar faces of Daniel Linderman (Malcolm McDowell), Charles Deveaux (Richard Roundtree), Angela Petrelli (Cristine Rose), Bob (Stephen Tobolowsky) and Kaito Nakamura (George Takei).
