If the second half of this year's season of Heroes is subtitled Fugitives, then it only stands to reason that there has to be someone that they're all fugitiving from - Now their hunter has been revealed... and, with typical Heroes subtlety, he's called The Hunter. But who is he hunting, and is he going to be as unimpressive as Villains' villains?Following news that Heroes producers were looking for a "Tommy Lee Jones type" for a major role in the series' fourth volume, E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos broke the identity of a character who could turn out to be a mover and shaker for NBC's superhuman soap:
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?
If you're not a Damages fan, that doesn't mean that you've never seen Ivanek before; he played Juliet's unlucky husband Burke in the last season of Lost, which means that he should definitely stay away from any speeding buses in Tim Kring's shock-happy show. The Hunter will apparently make his appearance in the season's fourteenth episode, the first of the Fugitives arc. There is still no word when the series' one-armed man will appear, but when he does, don't be surprised if his power is yet another one ripped from the comics page. Emmy Winner Comes to Heroes [E!
