Francesca Eastwood (Jersey Boys) and Pruitt Taylor Vince (True Blood, The Mentalist) have been cast in recurring roles on NBC’s upcoming event series Heroes Reborn. From Heroes creator/executive producer Tim Kring, the project, slated for a fall launch, will revolve around a new group of everyday people with extraordinary abilities. Like everything connected to Heroes Reborn, details about Eastwood and Vince’s characters are being kept under wraps, but I hear that Vince will play an unassuming but persuasive guy and Eastwood will play a manipulative young woman.
The Heroes follow-up stars Jack Coleman, who reprises his role as Noah Bennett from the original series, joined by 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).
Eastwood, repped by Greene & Associates and Sweeney Entertainment, next will be seen in features Cardinal X and Forgotten. Vince is repped by Greene & Associates and the Burstein Co.
