Per the Hollywood Reporter, Thomas Dekker, aka Claire's freshly mind-swiped bud, Zach, on Heroes, has been cast as savior-of-humanity John Connor in The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Fox's drama pilot set in the aftermath of the Terminator 2 film. (In related news, Heroes is replaying the fall finale Saturday at 9 pm/ET. Watch poor Eden stain the window all over again.)

Also, Variety reports that Rebecca Romijn is joining ABC's Ugly Betty as a series regular, playing the mystery woman who has been conspiring with Wilhelmina to take over "Mode" - minus any blue body paint, I am sad yet behooved to report. UPDATE: ABC's own press release reads, "Romijn will play the mysterious woman behind the mask who's been plotting to take over 'Mode.'"
