John Glover on Heroes as... (spoilers)


I thought Father Petrelli was the one.
So I guess Mama Petrelli was naughty in her youth...

http://ausiellofiles.ew.com/2008/12/...lover-cas.html

To restore the super to Heroes, the show is going -- but of course -- to Smallville!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the struggling NBC drama has tapped John Glover, a.k.a. Lex Luthor's dad, Lionel, to play Sylar's father.

"When Sylar meets his father, he's going to see a path ahead of him that he doesn't want to take," reveals a Heroes insider. "He has a lot more in common with his father than he realized."

The Tony award winner, who recently booked an arc on Brothers & Sisters as a love interest for Ron Rifkin's Saul, will turn up towards the end of Heroes' forthcoming "Fugitives" chapter. Do you see the family resemblance?

Smallville' star joins 'Heroes' cast, SPOILER

fine cast Glover in Heroes all you like, but as Sylars dad? I was hoping Nimoy would do it.

Re: John Glover on Heroes as... (spoilers)

I did the math yesterday. The "history of anything I touch" power said Angela was the mommy so, even though she was having affair after affair with Kiedo, our Gabe is clearly not a Nakamura, so that would leave "Bob" as one of the few accessible anglosaxon boys left from the 70s. I loved it on Veronica Mars when Veronica vomited out a car window after she figured out that she had been sleeping with her brother.

Kristen plays incest well.

John Glover is superb.

Best Satan ever.

And there's been some stiff competition.

Hells, did you see Billy Crystal as the Devil?

Marvelous!

Sweet.. the man is going to be in two shows I watch. Will be odd to see him play a gay man though after seeing his fascination with Martha Kent for so long.

John Glover, they got the Magnificent Bastard. Color me intrigued and glad to see his return to television after getting killed off on Smallville last season. He's not only a great actor, he also makes the other actors he works with appear better as well. Good casting move and I hope he sticks around for a bit.

This should be fun. Now if they could get Animal Mother Baldwin for an episode or two, that would be great.

You don't like Robert Forster? He was in classics such as Alligator, Delta Force(with Chuck Norris), Maniac Cop 3, and Jackie Brown.

I think we need to see him and Angela kick the shit out of each other and then do it like old wrinkled bloodied mutton.
