So let me get this straight: Christopher Eccleston was so miserable making Doctor Who that he wouldn't appear in the 50th anniversary special, but he had such a blast playing Claude the invisible man on Heroes he'd star in the new sequel series? That is messed up.

And yet, it's the truth. During an event for The Leftovers, Eccleston told MTV News he's be totally down for reprising his role on Heroes Reborn.

"Of course, yeah, I had a great time on the show!" Eccleston said on the prospect. "Yeah. I'd always be interested. That was a great character. I love that guy."


To be fair, Eccleston was in Heroes' one good season, and he got to repeatedly beat up Peter Petrelli while ostensibly training him to use his powers, so that had to be satisfying. Still, I can't wrap my head around the idea that Chris Eccleston hates Doctor Who but loves Heroes. That just seems supremely wrong to me.
