Heroes is going Green

Heroes fans: It looks like the show's superpowered characters will face something they've never faced before--a Robot Chicken! Or at least a few of the guys who work on a show called Robot Chicken.

EW.com is reporting that Seth Green and Breckin Meyer will be joining the NBC hit for a multi-episode arc in which they play comic-book fans that meet up with one of the show's heroes in Atlanta.

Green is well known among movie and television buffs for his roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Family Guy, and the two Austin Powers sequels. He's also one of the creators of Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, which spoofs just about everything in claymation. Meyer got his break playing the Spicoli-esque skater Travis in Clueless, and has since done voice work for King of the Hill and Robot Chicken.

It's unclear at what point the duo--should they agree to contracts--join the show, but casting the affable off-screen buddies seems to indicate that Heroes will retain its light-hearted tone seen in the season three premiere.

Heroes returns to NBC on September 22.

This is going to be gold! Seth and Breckin, People don't give them the credit they deserve. As much as the are comedic geniuses I'm sure they can pull off anything thoe writers throw at them. Seth recently did a PSA for the Rock the Vote Campaign, you all should really check it out.

I like both guys, but together in Heroes? Won't that make it a comedy? BUT if the writers can pull it off and balance their roles it could be awesome!!

What idiot wrote this article? Green was in ALL the Austin Powers movies and he was not in Clueless...

Seth Green was in all 3 Austin Powers movies, not just the sequals.

Still, back on topic, it sounds like a cool idea.

I'm not sure how Seth or Breckin will even fit. If it's just cameo appearances than sure, but they said multi-episodes... I hope this doesn't give me a :roll: moment like with West's action in Season 2

It depends how they use Seth, I mean if he's going to be a character for comic relief then it's a waste of a few episodes.
