SPOILER ALERT: This story contains information about Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black.
On the heels of the shocker involving his character on Orphan Black, Dylan Bruce has been tapped for a recurring role in NBC’s upcoming event series Heroes Reborn. Slated for a fall Thursday run, the project from Heroes creator/executive producer Tim Kring will revolve around a new group of everyday people with extraordinary abilities. Details about Bruce’s character are being kept under wraps.
The Heroes follow-up stars Jack Coleman, who reprises his role as Noah Bennett from the original series, joined by a new set of characters played by Zachary Levi, Gatlin Green and Ryan Guzman. Reprising their roles in a recurring capacity are Masi Oka (Hiro Nakamura) and Jimmy Jean-Louis (the Haitian).
Bruce, repped by Pacific Artists Management, Paradigm and Michael Bruno Group, is coming off a 2 1/2-season stint as the male lead opposite Tatiana Maslany on BBC America’s breakout drama Orphan Black. His character died in an explosive suicide in the show’s episode this past weekend.
