New cast for Heroes, Supernatural

A pair of television shows added a pair of fetching young lasses to their casts today, and they won't exactly be the stereotypical damsels in distress.

Dana Davis will be flying high with the cast of Heroes next season as yet another "ordinary person with extraordinary abilities," according to Reuters. She'll stay on as a regular with powers, but her abilities--just like all the other new additions to the cast--are being kept secret.

The actress was most recently seen on a pair of shows that have since gone under. She played Felicia Jones on the much-touted The Nine, and Michelle on Hidden Palms. Davis will also be seen next year on the big screen in the slasher Prom Night.

Supernatural is adding to its cast as well. Lauren Cohan joins the CW sci-fi drama as a demon hunter named Bela and will reportedly make her debut on the October 18 episode of the show. The announcement comes shortly after the network revealed that Katie Cassidy had also joined the show as another female hunter.

Cohan's portfolio is still growing, but she was featured in 2005's Casanova and in the National Lampoon sequel Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj.
