Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere by Chris Haston/NBC
They may rely on each other when it comes to saving the world on TV, but the bond between Heroes' Milo Ventimiglia and Hayden Panettiere is apparently strictly platonic in real life. According to fellow cast member James Kyson Lee, there's no truth to the rumor that Milo and Hayden are dating. It is not true, Lee said at the Lift Up America charity event in Hollywood on Sept. 25. Its a rumor and I dont know why people are jumping all over that. Milo will be the first one to tell you that theyre 12 years apart. So its not true.Lee participated in Lift Up Americas Giving Hope Tour, where 1,400 underprivileged kids from all over Los Angeles walked down the red carpet as celebrities cheered them on, and was more than happy to share the limelight. Today the kids are the stars, Lee said. We want to tell them to celebrate life and to go for everything that they believe in and dream of. We want to encourage ...
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...
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
Hayden Panettiere by Mark Sullivan/WireImage.com
Last night, the cast and crew of Heroes celebrated the end of their first season with an exclusive, 700-person bash at the Cabana Club in Hollywood, and TV Guide was on hand for all the excitement including Heroes-themed drinks, a musical performance by the Band from TV, and a surprise graduation ceremony for Hayden Panettiere (Claire Bennet), who slipped into a cap and gown to be presented with her high-school diploma by series creator Tim Kring as the band played Pomp and Circumstance.But even though the Hero-tinis and Save the World cosmopolitans were free-flowing, the cast all proved theyve all got another superpower: the ability to keep secrets. One by one, Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrelli), Masi Oka (Hiro), Adrian Pasdar (Nathan Petrelli), and the rest of the series stars all carefully deflected any questions about the season finale. Everybody dies, joked Zachary Quinto (Sylar). Actually, Ive been telling it to everyone,...
Per the Hollywood Reporter, Milo Ventimiglia has signed on for the horror pic Pathology, playing a hospital intern whose colleagues devise a game to see who can commit the perfect murder, while others vie to determine the cause of death. Alyssa Milano is lucky, lucky Milo's fiancée.... Adam Sandler's life is turned upside down when the Bedtime Stories he tells his niece and nephew start to come true.... I know what you did a decade ago. Per Variety, Freddie Prinze Jr. is producing and will star in Manslaughter, in which five college kids on a Philippines romp try to cover up a death.... Goldie Hawn may star in The Rosenbergs Save Christmas, which sounds like Meet the Fockers meets Christmas Vacation.
For months, the thing about Heroes that bothered me most was Milo Ventimiglias hair: specifically, that dreaded dangling forelock Peter Petrelli kept playing with, as if in thrall to a fetish. Ive long wanted the boy to get a haircut. But not like this!Quite the horrifying climax to the March cliff-hanger (no new episodes until April 23), as Sylar pinned that dupe Mohinder to the ceiling while slicing into Peter Petrellis skull to see why Peter ticks like Sylar, only less murderously. Blood drops from Peters forehead onto the floor, followed by that hank of hair. I cringed, then I cheered. Well done.The episode was a crackerjack thrill ride with one reversal after another. Simone rising from the dead? Shut up! Its really Candice, the slinky shape-shifter! Mrs. Bennet betraying her hubby, in cahoots with The Company? Shut up! Its really Candice, the slinky shape-shifter! What fun.By the way, I love how the writers have evolved HRG from sinister man...
Heroes' Hayden Panettierre, Adrian Pasdar
Nathan is the babydaddy! The Feb. 5 episode of NBC's Heroes ended with a stunning and super-sudsy twist: Viewers learned that cheerleader Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) is the out-of-wedlock offspring of trailer-park mama Meredith Gordon (Jessalyn Gilsig) and ambitious politico Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar). Are we gearing up for a Kennedy-esque scandal here? Series creator Tim Kring gave TV Guide the lowdown on this wild development.TV Guide: Was it always your plan to have Nathan be Claire's father?Tim Kring: Yes, from before Day 1. When the show was just a diagram on paper, I
Can we all just close our eyes and pretend that Rocky V never happened? Because if ever there were a franchise-finisher to be remembered for staging the Italian Stallion's final bout, Rocky Balboa, due out Dec. 20, portends to be it. Having grown up with this film series, I cheered and I cried at a press screening last week, as the famed palooka-turned-pugilist entered the ring just one more, most memorable time.The Oscar-winning Rocky and its first follow-up were seminal films, even coining the term "a Rocky story" to sum up the tale of an underdog (in this case, a loan shark's sad-sack collection man) who overcomes the odds to achieve greatness a bid for both true love and the title. Rocky III, with the arrival of Mr. T's Clubber Lang, found Rocko facing his fiercest opponent yet as Burgess Meredith's Mickey reveals (in his raspy growl) that previous comers "wuz hand-picked!" and then dealing with the loss of the trainer he for so long held dear. Rocky IV, an ...
They fly. They regenerate. They read your thoughts. But can the superpowered freaks and geeks of NBC's Heroes do battle with Fox's monolithic 24? Come January, the two megahit serials will go head-to-head, so Heroes creator Tim Kring is jam-packing his Dec. 4 mid-season finale (airing tonight at 9 pm/ET) with several seismic shocks, including the death of a character, a hero turning traitor and a prophetic painting of Hiro (Masi Oka) raising a sword to do battle with a gigantic... OK, we won't give it away. But here's what we can tell you:
· Before Heroes goes into repeat mode (it returns Jan. 22 with new episodes), Kring promises lots more insight into what — or better yet, who —
Greg Grunberg, Heroes
Greg Grunberg sure has come a long way since being chewed up and spit out by that whatever on Lost. Now, he's the star of his own watercooler-conversation series, NBC's Heroes (Mondays at 9 pm/ET). When Grunberg stopped by the TV Guide offices the morning after last week's episode aired, we debriefed him on the hunt for Sylar, Matt's upcoming date with a cheerleader, and what longtime pal J.J. Abrams was like as a tyke.
TVGuide.com: First, I have to say: Would that every husband could read their wives' minds!Greg Grunberg: Yeah, but be careful what you wish for. You immediately thin
