Sopranos star now one of NBC's Heroes

At least one of the mysterious new Heroes roles revealed last week has been filled. Dania Ramirez, who has a recurring role on HBO's mob-tastic The Sopranos, will join Claire Bennett, Hiro Nakamura, and the rest of the superfriends next season as a regular, says Reuters.

Ramirez plays A.J. Soprano's ex-fiancée Blanca on the HBO show, which finishes its six-season run in a few weeks. Honing some superpowers should be old hat for Ramirez, who was Callisto in X-Men: The Last Stand.

Heroes still has yet to announce who will be playing the remaining characters--an Irish mobster, a surrogate for Niki/Jessica's son, a late-20s African-American mother, and a boyfriend for cheerleader Claire.

It will be interesting to see what character she will play, what her power will be, and how long she is on before she gets killed off like so many other heroes did this season.

I'm really not too sure if she is going to be enough for me to endure watching another season. This show was a big let-down for me. Seems like I only kept watching in hopes that the show would get better. ZZzzzzzzzz.......!!!

tonik2255 >> "why does nikkis jessicas son need a suragotte shes still alive"



I think your misunderstanding what a surrogate mother is.



Surrogate pregnancy - an arrangement for a woman to carry and give birth to a child who will be raised by others.



So for some reason Niki couldnt have children

To call her a Sopranos "star" stretches it a little. I realy don't know much about this girl. I just can't wait til next season to find out what happened to the Petrelli's and Matt.
