Seth Green and Breckin Meyer Are Close To Joining The Cast Of Heroes

Heroes LogoThere is some really exciting Heroes casting news floating around the web today. EW.com’s Michael Ausiello is reporting that real life best friends “and frequent collaborators Seth Green and Breckin Meyer are nearing a deal to join the cast of Heroes for multi-episode arcs.” (link) How cool is that?

Breckin Meyer and Seth Green Are Set To Join The Cast Of NBC's HeroesAccording to Ausiello’s sources Green and Meyer “will play Atlanta-based comic book nerds aficionados who cross paths with (and perhaps serve as advisors to) one of the Heroes.” (link) It sounds like some stellar stunt casting and I’m excited to see what these two can bring to NBC’s hit super hero drama. While I love Heroes, the show often lacks in the acting department. Hopefully Green and Meyer will be able to breathe some life into whichever established Heroes’ characters they are working with.

Best Friends Breckin Meyer and Seth Green
Robot Chicken Season 1 DVD Box Set CoverOne reason I really like these two actors is that I’m obsessed with their most recent collaboration, Robot Chicken. The stop motion animated show created by Green and Matthew Senreich is amazing, and while the two friends starred in some classic 90’s movies this is by far their best work. Aly can’t stand the show, but I still stop to watch it any time it’s on the Cartoon Network. Green and Meyer voice many of the show’s characters and it is some of the best pop culture humor out there.
