While the Heroes Reborn miniseries is a reboot of the original NBC hit, at least one familiar face is making their return, Jack Coleman.
In the original Heroes series, Coleman played Noah Bennet, best known to fans as the Man with the Horn-Rimmed Glasses that had a penchant for trying to grab the various Heroes, reports Deadline, which first learned the news. He was also Hayden Panettiere's character's father.
HRG's return isn't too surprising as he was a fan favorite. Also, when the reboot was first announced in February, NBC President Jennifer Salke noted that there is a "possibility" some faces from the original series could appear.
Zachary Quinto and Mil Ventimiglia have also been approached to appear in the miniseries, but are said to currently be unavailable.
The 13-episode miniseries is scheduled to air sometime in 2015. Heroes ran for four seasons before being axed. The show's creator, Tim Kring, is also back for Reborn.
