Will this be the last we see of Mr. Nakamura? George Takei by Chris Haston/NBC
Episode Recap: "Four Months Later...." (September 24, 2007)Of all the shows I follow, this was the premiere that had me fidgeting in my cubicle all day. I have never missed an episode. I nearly fell out of my chair when I received an email this past summer, saying that I would be the new Heroes blogger. This blog is important to TV Guide and Heroes fans alike. I myself used to read it every Tuesday morning before and after meeting my co-workers around the Heroes water-cooler. Needless to say, I hope I live up to all of your expectations, because this show just gets better and better!First off, the symbol. You know what Im talking about - the RNA strand that pops up everywhere. Tonight, it was painted in red on Mrs. Petrelli and Mr. Nakamuras (may he rest in hero peace) torn photos, drawn by Molly, fashioned around Peters (he lives!) neck and carved within the handle of the famous Kensei/Hiro sword. So, what exactly does it mean? One known fact: When you receive a p...
Ali Larter in Marigold
While Heroes' Niki cools her jets this summer, her portrayer can be seen in a very different and certainly less intense role. In the romantic comedy Marigold, now in theaters, Ali Larter plays the title character, a real brat of a B-list actress whose credits include such suspect sequels as "Indecent Proposal 2," "Fatal Attraction 3" and even "Apollo 14." When Marigold's snarkiness finds her stranded in Bombay, it's off to Bollywood — and into the arms of one of the genre's dreamiest leading men. TVGuide.com spoke with Larter about her big-screen lark, and pressed her for scoop on Niki's next heroic adventure. TVGuide.com: Let's be a bit introspective: Is this the same Ali Larter I spoke to a year ago? Following all this Heroes hoopla?Ali Larter: Abs
The Chronicles of Narnia courtesy Buena Vista Pictures Distribution
Per the Hollywood Reporter, Michael Apted is set to claim the reins from Andrew Adamson and direct The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the third film in the seven-pic series. Among the returning cast members are (spoiler alert?) Ben Barnes, Georgie Henley and Skandar Keynes.... Marc Forster (Monster's Ball) will helm and cowrite with Paul Haggis the 22nd James Bond film.... Ben Stiller will produce/perhaps star in the comedy In Deep, in which a man fighting a parking ticket gets caught up in a nightmarish chain of events.... Per Variety, a September release is set for National Lampoon's Homo Erectus, a caveman comedy (is there any other kind these days, really?) starring the likes of Ali Larter, David Carradine and Gary Busey.... Frank Miller will adapt Raymond Chandler's Trouble Is My Business as a starring vehicle for Clive Owen.
Lindsay Lohan tops this year's Maxim's "Hot 100" list, with the lad mag proclaiming the rehabbed redhead to be "a huge star in the truest meaning of the word." (Note to self: Consult dictionary.)Rounding out the top 10 are Alba, ScarJo, Xtina, Biel, Heroes' Ali Larter, Eva "My publicist deserves a raise" Mendez, Rihanna, Housewives' Eva Longoria and Fergie (who, after all, is Fergalicious). Grey's' Katherine Heigl came in at No. 14, while One Tree Hiller Sophia Bush is No. 24.
Malcolm McDowell and Ali Larter, Heroes
Welcome back to Monday Night Smackdown. When the last new Heroes episode ended seven weeks ago, Mohinder (Sendhil Ramamurthy) was telekinetically pinned to the ceiling like a piñata while Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) was having his head sliced open by the brain-snatching Sylar (Zachary Quinto). This epic battle between good and evil culminates when the show finally returns April 23. And it's not even the epic battle.
"We've positioned Peter and Sylar as the two mythic superpowers of the show, so this is merely Round 1," promises creator Tim Kring. "It's not their ultimate showdown — it's more like the trailer for things to come." Still, it's a doozy. Though the entire sequence
Ali Larter, Heroes
It ain't easy being the scariest gal on TV. When Ali Larter has a day off from NBC's Heroes (Mondays at 9 pm/ET), in which she plays dual personalities Niki and Jessica, she isn't kicking back. She's studying martial arts and taking striptease classes. Larter needs to master the "Kill Bill" stuff now that Jessica is an assassin for the shadowy Vegas mob boss Linderman. And the stripping? That's for a secret Heroes twist to be revealed later this season.
"The blessing and curse of being on Heroes is that you never know what they'll throw at you," says Larter, 31. "You have to be ready. Luckily for me I'm a kick-ass kinda gal. I'm also a bit schizophrenic — I need to change and reinvent myself a lot."
She came to the right show. When Heroes debuted last fall, we were first introduced to Niki,
Adrian Pasdar, Heroes
You'd think a rock star was in the building the way the crowd poured into the TV Guide conference room when Heroes star Adrian Pasdar came by for a visit last Thursday. After pressing some flesh and autographing many TV Guide covers, Pasdar sat down with TVGuide.com to tease what's ahead for Nathan and that blonde beauty who's gunning for him.
TVGuide.com: Do you know who we'll be taping over? [I play a tape of a female saying, "This is what I can tell you about her: In all of us there is an angel and a devil, and you get two-in-one with her."]Adrian Pasdar: That's Ali [Larter], the Jersey girl....
TVGuide.com: How's that for kismet? So last we tuned in, Jessica had just gotten her assignment to snuff Nathan. Why do I have the feeling that when the moment of truth comes, those two will end up having torrid sex instead?Pasdar: Well, we do end up in bed... but not like you think. I can't tell you any more than that, but
Question: On Heroes, it just seems that Niki has a beyond-extreme case of split personality disorder. How is what she has considered a power?
Answer: Have you seen this babe in action when she's possessed by Jessica? She's a freaking Amazon with super strength. When the show comes back a week from tonight, one of the more amusing moments comes when you see how all the cops keeping Niki/Jessica in custody cringe in fear, anticipating her next violent outburst. This isn't a happy power, but it is a power ...
Adrian Pasdar, Heroes
Here comes the bride. This week on NBC's fantastically popular Heroes (Mondays at 9 pm/ET), viewers will finally meet the thus-far (and conspicuously) MIA wife of Adrian Pasdar's political contender, Nathan Petrelli. (Just Shoot Me's Rena Sofer fills the bill as Heidi, the Mrs.) Might the arrival of his better half shed new light on Nathan's secret "ability," to fly? Or might her presence instead only introduce new questions?
Surveying the marrieds' obviously fractured relationship, Pasdar tells TVGuide.com, "It was predicated on what I think is a common understanding of what it would take to be a politician's wife, and all the things that go along with that. And love, of course, factored in, heavily — in the beginning." (Suddenly, Nathan's
Onetime West Winger Matthew Perry stars on Aaron Sorkin's Strip.
Television's new fall lineups won't be unveiled until May, but Hollywood is already making predictions about which pilots will become full-fledged shows. Here are some projects that are generating heat.
Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip NBC has penciled in this drama from West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin about the backstage doings of a famous sketch-comedy show à la Saturday Night Live. Sorkin's mighty pen, and a cast that
