    - LIVE LONG AND PROSPER, HERO: Fans have been buzzing since it was
confirmed at ComicCon 2007 in San Diego that Zachary Quinto will take on the
role of Spock - one of television's most iconic SF roles - in JJ Abrams'
upcoming Star Trek XI.

    - THE MAYA FACTOR?: Former 'Sopranos' alum, Dania Ramirez joins the cast
this season as Maya Herrera, a young woman plagued by a threatening ability
that has driven both her and her twin brother Alejandro (Shalim Ortiz) from
their home in the Dominican Republic to make the dangerous crossing to the
United States in search of help. Details on her character are being held
tightly under wraps by 'Heroes' executive producer/creator Tim Kring - but the
heat is on, as fan tension and interest builds. The actress already has a
super hero pedigree, having appeared as Callisto in X-Men 3: The Last Stand.

    THIS JUST IN: Co-Executive Producer and Writer, Jeph Loeb joins the cast
for the Toronto leg of the HEROES WORLD TOUR. Loeb comes to the show after
enjoying being Supervising Producer on LOST and SMALLVILLE. In films, Loeb
began his career as the writer/producer on such favorites as TEEN WOLF and
COMMANDO. The three time Eisner Award and five time Wizard Award winning
author has written every iconic comic book character from BATMAN and SUPERMAN
to THE X-MEN and SPIDER-MAN. In 2003, Loeb was awarded an honorary doctorate
from St. Edward's University for his work in literature and its positive
effect on children.
