It's not easy to live in Hiro's shadow, which is what poor sidekick Ando has been forced to do on sci-fi hit 'Heroes'. Played by Korean James Kyson Lee (who sometimes gets some flak for playing a Japanese guy), Ando has slowly emerged as a hero in his own right as the series has progressed.
Now blessed with powers of his own, Ando no longer takes the back seat. Certainly Lee's acting ability and profound likability has played a part in his character's advancement; it's not often that a character goes from comic foil to centre of attention. It takes a certain kind of magnetism for that to happen, and Lee has it in spades.
AOL sat down to talk with Lee at the 2009 Fan Expo in Toronto about the upcoming season of 'Heroes', and what it's been like maturing along with his character, Ando.

Jane Lynch is one of those TV actresses who have played a zillion memorable bit roles, yet you can't quite place her. She's appeared in countless hit shows – as her miles-long IMDB credits attest – from 'Married...With Children' all the way up to 'The L Word.' Her knack for physical comedy and her ability to fully absorb each element of her oft-zany characters has set her apart from her peers.
Lynch has certainly hit it big with her next role as aggressive cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester in the upcoming musical dramedy 'Glee.' The amount of buzz circulating around this feel-good show about a group of misfits is nearly deafening, and Lynch is right in the centre of it all, poised to finally taste the fame she's avoided up until now. Once the much-deserved brouhaha translates into actual viewers, we're sure Lynch won't be a background figure for long.
The affable and down-to-Earth star spoke with AOL about what it's like returning to high school, and how it feels to wear Adidas tracksuits to work.

CTV and ABC are promoting their new apocalyptic drama, 'Flash Forward', as the new 'Lost'. Starring Joseph Fiennes from 'Shakespeare in Love', John Cho ('Harold and Kumar', 'Star Trek') and Brian F. O'Byrne ('Million Dollar Baby'), there is certainly no dearth of star power. And the premise - an unexplained, cataclysmic event causes the Earth's entire population to pass out for 2 minutes and 17 seconds - isn't bad either. But there's something about the show that's lacking.
