Nanny star joins the cast of Heroes

ShowtimeNo, it's not Fran Drescher. But wouldn't that be something? Her laugh could send shock waves though a person's brain and paralyze them for several minutes.

Actually, it's Madeline Zima, who played the youngest kid that Nanny Fine had to take care of on the sitcom. She's all grown up now and co-stars on Californication. On Heroes she'll play a college student who somehow gets involved with Claire. I guess that means that Claire is back in college and our heroes are no longer on the run. She'll be on for several episodes.

It seems that every season we have a lot of posts about what new characters are showing up on Heroes. They can be good additions (Daphne, Danko), and they can be downright awful (cough Maya cough). I'm still wondering what happened to the guy who could breathe underwater. And what about? Now that The Sarah Connor Chronicles has been canned, will Thomas Dekker come back to the show? (I doubt it.)

i'm still under shock from her stint in Californication.
I keep thinking it's the best career move, so different from what she's known for, but I just COULDNT take the picture of the young girl from Nanny off my mind all along...

It was too quick for me, no transition role between the two... And the storyline being what it is (her being young and sexually manipulative) just adds more to that.

I still feel weird about it.
And I feel guilty for it.

Bottomline is: I still don't know if I want to keep on watching Heroes in September. I guess my secret wish was its cancellation and a full season order for Chuck.

I wouldn't mind if she punched me.

If you know what I mean...

Why? She's not going to be naked on Heroes.

"Her laugh could send shock waves though a person's brain and paralyze them for several minutes."

Doesn't it do that already?

Madeline's agent:

good news: "You're on a show!"

bad news: "It's Heroes"
