Heroes adds Jessica Collins to cast

Jessica Collins HeroesThe Hollywood Reporter reports that the already large cast of Heroes is balooning ballooning toward ginormous -- which is now officially a word, FYI. NBC confirmed that Jessica Collins, formerly of ABC's The Nine, will be playing Sophie, a new super-powered female.

The article describes her as a mysterious woman who works at the organization tracking all the heroes, which I assume is Primatech Paper Company -- unless there is a new organization to be introduced.

In addition to Collins, Dania Ramirez, Dana Davis, David Anders, and Lyndsy Fonseca are all expected to join the cast in the second season.

The best episodes of Heroes were in the mid to late season, where the plot would focus on a single or just a few characters. The shows where they tried to hop across 7 narratives were usually sloppy and a little rushed. I wonder how they are going to handle all of these new characters and still have time for developing a believable relationship between Claire and her new boyfriend, who also has powers.

I have a theory that by season five one-tenth of the US population will have been on Heroes. At this point they have done invisibility, healing, shape-shifting, super strength, phasing, flight, ice creation, mind control, technokenesis, time manipulation and a couple I am leaving out.

Lets start taking bets on what sort of powers these new characters will have.

While ginormous may be a word, "balooning" most certainly is not.

A few days ago, the ladies replacing Kristin from E! revealed a some tidbits about the Sophie character: Look for a dangerous new Francophone character named Sophie. She's the employee of a powerful, mysterious group, and she's "not afraid to use lethal force to accomplish her mission."

I hope they tweak the character a bit as I doubt the actress can pull off a Francophone (if you check her bio, it doesn't look like she knows the language). She could still be named Sophie and from Québec or France but have been raised in English (for example, raised in Montréal where you can live in English).
