As NBC continues development on its Heroes revival Heroes Reborn, The Wrap is reporting that Jack Coleman has become the first actor to join the cast, signing on to reprise the role of Noah Bennet – a.k.a. the Man in the Horn-Rimmed Glasses – in the rebooted series.
Heroes Reborn is being overseen by Heroes creator Tim Kring, and will run for 13 episodes in 2015, with an online webseries serving as a lead in to the show. Here’s the official synopsis:
The saga behind the 2006 breakout series Heroes will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the Heroes phenomenon to new places.
