Heroes Spoilers, Scoops for Season Two

• New cast member Dania Ramirez revealed that when we first meet her character, Maya, "she's on the run from the cops."

Zachary Quinto was neither confirming nor denying reports that he's in line to play a young Spock in Damon Lindelof and J.J. Abrams' Star Trek pic. "I'm under strict orders not to say anything," he said.
