The hunt is on! (But the casting hunt is over.)
Sources tell me exclusively that Zeljko Ivanek, who just won an Emmy for Damages, will be joining Heroes later this season. He'll appear in a multi-episode arc as a character named the Hunter.
Sounds pretty awesome, no?
When will he appear, and what's this about "hunting"? Well...
According to insiders, the Hunter's first appearance is in episode 14, which kicks off Volume Four: Fugitives. (Heroes creator Tim Kring is writing the Fugitives premiere!)
I'm told that Volume Four will begin in late January or early February 2009, and since it is all about fugitives, the role of the Hunter sounds pretty key, don't you think? Tommy Lee Jones has nothing on this newbie, from what I hear...
Now, which character(s) will be this Hunter's quarry? Post your guesses in the comments!
