New cast for Heroes, 'Til Death

At this rate, the entire world will have superpowers in the Heroes universe. The NBC sci-fi hit has added another cast member to its ever-expanding roster, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Jessica Collins will have a recurring role as Sophie, an employee at an agency that is tracking the "ordinary people with extraordinary abilities." She won't just be a pencil pusher, though; Sophie will have powers as well.

Collins' recent work includes the hyped-yet-failed serial The Nine, in which she played Lizzie Miller, and a guest spot on CSI: Las Vegas.

John Cho will show his range by going from pot-smoking college student (Harold from Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle) to private-school principal. Fox has booked the actor to play the latter role in 'Til Death, where he will serve as a rival to Jeff Woodcock (played by Eddie Kaye Thomas).

Paul Blackthorne has also found a new home on ABC's new drama Big Shots. The actor most recently appeared as the lead in Sci-Fi's now-cancelled The Dresden Files, and has made appearances on 24, Deadwood, and Monk.
