"He's brilliant at two things — being the Honolulu medical examiner and playing the piano, which he does in his autopsy-room office to help him think."
Meanwhile, on The Mentalist, Jack pops up...

If Heroes' previous season finales have taught viewers anything, it's that they can expect to see most of the superpowered good guys come together to bring down the villain.
Heroes: Will Lydia's death spell disaster for Samuel?
Robert Knepper, who plays this season's power-hungry, carnival-leading baddie, Samuel, promises more of the same in Monday's Season 4 send-off. But for Samuel, it's no more Mr. Nice Guy.
"Samuel never went up to Hiro [Masi Oka] and Peter [Milo Ventimiglia] and said, 'You're going to work for me.' He made them realize something about themselves that they needed to realize and hopefully they would thank Samuel," Knepper tells TVGuide.com. "There was this manipulative approach that didn't work out how he wanted it to work out. In the end, he's going to say ' ... I'm going to get you back. I'm going to show you my true colors — you're now working for me.' And if they don't, there's going to be a price to pay."
Claire Bennett (Hayden Panettiere) and her father (Jack Coleman) have already gotten a taste of what Samuel's willing to do ...

The insider also mentioned that the 19-year-old is young and living the Hollywood lifestyle, which is "not [Milo's] style" now that the 31-year-old is ...

The main character will look like Milo and will be written by X-Men editor Mark Powers, based on a story by Mike O'Sullivan. Devil's Due and Ventimiglia will reveal more about the project at Comic-Con in New York this weekend, and TVGuide.com will be there! Stay tuned for our interview with Milo about his new project, which, if successful, would likely be adapted as a TV show or movie. What do you think of Milo's new venture?

Date the cheerleader, answer to the world. That's how Milo Ventimiglia must be feeling ever since rumors surfaced (only to be denied) that he and Heroes "niece" Hayden Panettiere are romantically involved. People has crowned the couple "an item," with a source telling the tab that when the Heroes are together, "They're very affectionate.... He really takes care of her, even down to the little things like giving her a back massage." All my uncle ever gives me is a $15 check at birthday time.Similarly, an "eyewitness" tells the U.K.'s Sun that at a pre-Christmas party at the Water Grill in L.A., "[Milo] called [Hayden] his girlfriend and said that he loved her."Hayden's rep tells People, "We do not respond to inquiries from the media regarding Ms. Panettiere's personal life."
Today at www.ae.com/web/77e/winter-tales/, the Heroes heartthrob is unspooling his new batch of American Eagle-sponsored webisodes holiday-themed clips this time.

If the venture is succcessful, the frequently topless actor has sworn to use the proceeds to buy a shirt. Ben Katner
